Braun sits out Brewers 6-1 loss to A's
MILWAUKEE -- Amidst a report that Ryan Braun could be suspended for up to 100 games for alleged PED use, the Brewers slugger rested an ailing thumb while Oakland clipped the Crew 6-1 in the rubber match of a 3 game series at Miller Park on Wednesday.
Pitcher Yovani Gallardo looked like his former self into the 7th inning of a 1-1 game.
But after loading the bases, then giving up a 2-run single to Josh Donaldson, he gave way to Michael Gonzalez.
The lefty who's been so good lately gave up a 3-run homer to Brandon Moss; the 5 run frame was the latest back-breaker for a last-place team that is 14 games under 500.
Philadelphia is at Miller Park to open a 4 game series, beginning Thursday night.
