The Milwaukee Brewers have fallen to second place in the National League Central after losing at Washington 8-5. The Brewers blew a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning when the Nationals scored seven runs — and Ryan Zimmerman had the game winning hit with a two run double, while Bryce Harper was ejected in the eighth for arguing a strike call. It’s the first time since May 26th that the Brewers have not held at least a share of the Central lead, and they’re now one half game behind the Chicago Cubs. Jacob Barnes took the loss, falling to 3-2 after Brewers’ starter Jimmy Nelson struck out ten in seven innings. Domingo Santana hit a 476 foot homer in the first inning, the longest at Nationals Park since 2015 — and Lewis Brinson hit his first big league homer for the Crew, which closes out its three game set at Washington today (Thursday).
