At least in previous losses there was somewhere to point the finger. Either the starting pitching wasn't good enough, the bullpen coughed up the lead or the offense just couldn't score runs. Saturday afternoon all that has ailed the Milwaukee Brewers combined into a 8-0 loss at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals, dropping the Brewers to 2-8, their worst record through...
