After a disastorous home stand, the Milwaukee Brewers hoped for better luck on the road, but it didn't happen Monday night as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Crew 6-3, handing Milwaukee it's 7th consecutive defeat. Yovanni Gallardo and Johnny Cueto hooked up in a nice pitcher's duel through 6 innings in a 1-1 game. Gallardo finished with 6 innings, allowing only the run on 4 hits. Cueto pitched 7 and the Cincinnati offense came to life against relief pitcher Todd Coffey who surrendured five runs in the inning, capped by a three run homer from Johnny Gomes. Corey Hart hit a pair of home runs for the Brewers in the losing cause. The series concludes with a Tuesday afternoon matinee as Milwaukee (15-23) sends Manny Parra to the hill against Homer Bailey.
