His record now stands at 0-3 on the season and his ERA moved up to 6.57.  Of course it's not all Rodriguez's falt, after all the Milwaukee hitters couldn't muster up but three hits on the night to spoil a great pitching performance.  It may be a cliche, but neither Marcum, nor Edinson Volquez deserved a loss ...
