It’s a quiet night for the Brewers’ offense as Milwaukee loses at San Francisco, 2-0 on Monday. The Crew only had four singles, and no hits after the fourth inning, as they dropped to two and a half games behind first place Chicago in the National League Central and three and a half behind Arizona for the last N-L Wild Card. It was also a rare night for Brewers’ starter Zach Davies, who came into the game with the Majors’ second highest run support from his offense at almost seven runs an outing. Davies’ record dropped to 14-7, as he gave up both San Francisco runs in the fourth inning on an R-B-I double from Brandon Crawford and a groundout by Nick Hundley. For the Giants, it was their second shutout of the season and their first at home.
Milwaukee prospect Bubba Derby has been named the pitcher of the week in the Triple “A” Pacific Coast League. The 23-year-old right hander won both his starts last week for Colorado Springs as he gave up two earned runs in 12 and two thirds innings while striking out ten. Derby was drafted in the sixth round by the Oakland “A”s in 2015 out of San Diego State. The Brewers acquired him in February of last year in a trade that sent slugger Khris Davis to the “A”s.
