Brewers 8, Mariners 3: Big inning sinks Ryan Rowland-Smith, while bullpen gets picked apart late

This was a pretty good game for the Mariners until the fourth inning. They led 3-0 and Ryan Rowland-Smith was one strike away from moving on to the fifth unblemished.
But then, two homers, by Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Gomez, three pitches apart, did him in. The long balls gave Milwaukee four runs, the Mariners stopped scoring after that, and the bullpen kept giving up add-on markers.
Rowland-Smith was charged with a fifth run against in the sixth inning when Chad Cordero came on to replace him with two on, walked the bases full and yielded a sacrifice fly. The Brewers got another in the seventh off Cordero, then two more in the eighth inning to win by a more lopsided score than the game really deserved.
So, that’s two losses in a row.
Chone Figgins stole three bases tonight. That was a positive. So were the early sac flies by Milton Bradley and Franklin Gutierrez.
Hey, the Rangers are finally about to lose! To the Astros, at that!
OK, that’s all I’ve got.
