Looking to close out the nine-game road trip on a positive note, the Milwaukee Brewers managed to do just the opposite, giving up an eighth-inning lead before falling to Houston 7-4 in the 10th inning off a three-run walk-off from Carlos Pena.
"Defensively we gave them a couple of runs early. Offensively we obviously didn't do the job when we had guys on third base," a flustered Ron Roenicke said after the game. "That was a bad game."
Roenicke went so far as to agree that this was the Brewers' worst game of the year saying it was "as bad as it gets."
"Sometimes we may lose or we may not pitch well or not hit, but all the things we did wrong in that game, it was a bad game."
Yovani Gallardo pitched well, pushing his scoreless streak to 21 innings after going seven innings allowing five hits and three unearned runs, but it was not enough as fielding errors and bullpen mistakes cost him the win.
BEST OF MAXIM

Even as someone who follows the Brewers pretty closely, I don’t know much about the state of the minor leagues. Other than spring training and September call ups, I only know the names of a few players in Milwaukee’s farm system (I hear this Hunter Morris guy has a lot of upside).
I am aware that the Brewers supposedly depleted their...
The Milwaukee Brewers have placed right fielder Norichika Aoki on the paternity list, as his wife is expected to give birth to their second child on Thursday.
To fill Aoki's spot on the roster, the Brewers have recalled outfielder Josh Prince from Triple-A Nashville. According to MLB rules, Aoki can stay on the paternity list up to three days.
Aoki has been on high alert over...
MILWAUKEE -- Those needing evidence as to why the Milwaukee Brewers have stuck with Wily Peralta through the young right-hander's struggles this season don't need to look any further than Friday night's performance.
In one of the best outings of his career, Peralta allowed just two hits and didn't allow a run for just the second time in his career, as the Brewers...
Ryan Braun has been battling an injury to his thumb for weeks now. Occasional rest did not work, so the Milwaukee Brewers placed him on the DL. There has been little improvement even while on the DL, so Braun is looking for answers. Those answers may come from a hand specialist Braun saw recently.
Adam McCalvy of MLB.com says Braun visited Dr. Don Sheridan in Phoenix yesterday...
The Milwaukee Brewers were on their way to another disheartening loss when they finally got a big hit.
Completely shut down by Astros starter Erik Bedard through seven innings, Rickie Weeks greeted reliever Hector Ambriz with a two-run home run to left, giving the Brewers the lead at 2-1.
Aramis Ramirez homered off Ambriz for an insurance run in the ninth, while Francisco Rodriguez...
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers outrighted left-hander Chris Narveson to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, removing him from the 40-man roster.
Narveson, 31, will continue to start for Nashville, where he was on a rehab assignment recovering from a sprained left middle finger. Though it's a disappointing setback, Narveson is taking the mindset of trying to earn his way back to...
The Milwaukee Brewers have recalled outfielder Josh Prince from their Triple-A Nashville farm club in an act to provide some outfield depth while Norichika Aoki serves a few days on the paternity list so he can be there for the birth of his second child.
Prince has played in six games this season with the Brewers as a replacement player off the bench while Aoki will be gone for 1...
Though it's been seven weeks since Tim Hudson last earned a victory, he's often been deserving of a better outcome.
The 15-year veteran tries to avoid the longest winless stretch of his career as the Atlanta Braves look to halt a seven-game road losing streak to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.
Hudson (4-6, 4.17 ERA) has had a rough go of late, compiling an 0-5 record...
Amid a disappointing season for the Milwaukee Brewers, principal owner Mark Attanasio did what most people in his position do when addressed about their team’s struggles, he gave manager Ron Roenicke a vote of confidence. Speaking to Fox Sports on Wednesday, Attanasio said that Roenicke’s job was safe until the end of the season. But how often have we heard that before and the...

Since May 8th, 36 games, 125 plate appearances, Yuniesky Betancourt's OPS is .382. .382 is Buster Posey's career OBP. Jeff Bianchi continues to rot away on the bench while Runnin Ron plays the single worst player in MLB every day at multiple positions. Fire Ron Roenicke.

Home Run of the Day: Carlos Pena, Houston Astros - 26.92* seconds [video]
A monster of a home run for Pena as the Astros walkoff against the Brewers in the tenth inning. The remarkable thing about this trot isn't how slow it feels, but the fact that it's a) only the third slowest trot of the day and b) not even the slowest trot...
The Milwaukee Brewers and Houston Astros entered 2013 with completely different expectations, but now have very similar records. Houston was completely committed to rebuilding, while the Brewers had postseason hopes.
After Houston's 10-1 rout over Milwaukee on Tuesday -- the first meeting between the two teams since the Astros left the National League Central -- the Brewers...
