Roenicke blames himself for bullpen miscommunication in Brewers' loss

All losses certainly bother the manager, but Thursday night's 5-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves is going to eat at Ron Roenicke just a bit more. Milwaukee's skipper took full responsibility for the bullpen mix-up that ended up playing a big role in Atlanta's decisive three-run seventh inning. With the Brewers up 4-3 and runners at second and third, Roenicke went to the mound...

That allowed the Arizona Diamondbacks to chip away at the deficit and eventually overtake Milwaukee's bullpen...
