Brewers Pitchers Walk Nine; Slip to 4-9

Ryan Braun had a career night against the defending champion Phillies. Braun went 5 for 5, knocked out two homers and did what he could to keep the Brew in the game. Unfortunately for Braun and his teamates, it wasn't enough. Manny Parra layed another egg on the mound and he and members of the bullpen surrendered 9 walks.

Ken Macha is sick and tired of all of the pitching staffs bases on balls. The Brewers lead the majors in walks allowed and these free passes are making it very difficult for them to stay in games.

Let's see if Brandon Looper and company can get things under control and get the Crew a most needed victory tonight.
