If the Nats were going to steal one in this series they missed their opportunity. They took a 4-1 lead into the bottom of the eighth, and ended up on the losing end, dropping their third straight here. It drops their record to 1-11 in their last 12 road games against teams with a winning record. The Brewers have now won five straight, yielding just eight runs in the process or 1.6 a game. Garrett Mock has only two big-league starts and neither was pretty as he exited early, as the opponents rang up 19 runs in the two games. This is a monumental task for the Nats - a team that isn't scoring right now and has already been shutout 10 times on the road this season. We will take the Brewers for the four-game sweep.
