Chacin struggles, Brewers fall to Pirates 9-4

It’s been a difficult season for Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin. His troubles continued Friday night as Milwaukee fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-4.

Chacin walked in three runs in the third inning giving up a total of six Pirates scores in the frame. 23 of his 39 pitches in the inning were balls allowing three hits and four walks.

Manager Craig Counsell went to the bullpen as Freddy Peralta relieved Chacin in the inning. Chacin gave up seven earned runs on six hits, walking four in his 2.2 innings of work. With his latest performance he fell to 0-4 with a 6.46 earned run average in five starts in May. For the season, Chacin dropped to 3-7 with a 5.74 ERA in 12 outings.

Keston Hiura was a bright spot as he hit a three-run homer in the fourth to help the Brewers cut into the lead. Hiura finished the day 3-4 from the plate.

Milwaukee (32-26) is set to take on Pittsburgh (28-28) in game three of a four game set Saturday afternoon. Brandon Woodruff (7|13.22 ERA75 SO) is set to take the bump opposite of Nick Kingham (1|18.28 ERA, 28 SO). First pitch is scheduled for 3:05pm.

Jeremy Jeffress set to return to Brewers

Veteran reliever Jeremy Jeffress is ready to return to the Brewers. He opened the season on the injured list after suffering shoulder weakness during Spring Training. Jeffress made four appearances in his minor-league stint with Class AAA San Antonio. In just over four innings, he allowed seven runs on nine hits with no walks and five strikeouts.

Manager Craig Counsell spoke about Jeffress on Sunday.

“He’s going to Milwaukee. He’ll be with us tomorrow. We’re going to meet before the game (against St. Louis) and discuss some pitching things. We’ll make a decision tomorrow. It’ll either be Monday or Tuesday (when Jeffress is activated).”

The bullpen started the 2019 season down a few key cogs. Jeffress, Corey Knebel and Josh Hader were all big contributors to Milwaukee’s run last year. However, this season the Brewers will be without Knebel. The return of Jeffress is huge for Milwaukee, especially if he can mirror his all-star season of 2018.

The 31-year old made a career high 73 appearances last year. He went 8-1 with a 1.29 ERA, 15 saves and 89 strikeouts.

Brewers can’t complete sweep, fall 7-1 to Dodgers

The Brewers were hoping for better results Sunday against the Dodgers but couldn’t get anything going. Milwaukee fell to Los Angeles 7-1,

Jhoulys Chacín got roughed up in his third start of the season. He couldn’t make it through the third inning, giving up six runs on six hits and walking three. In his last regular season start at Dodger Stadium on Aug. 2, Chacin was rocked for nine runs, including three homers.

Chacin talked about what went wrong for him.

My slider wasn’t working today. Not for lefties or for righties. I just couldn’t command it. Those guys hit a lot of homers, but they also take a lot of walks, too. You have to throw strikes and make good pitches.

The Dodgers’ pitching was fantastic. In what was supposed to be more of a ‘bullpen day’ Ross Stripling exceeded expectations. He went eight innings, gave up only one run on four hits and walked one.

Milwaukee ended their road-trip with a 2-4 record. They were swept by the Angels but were able to take two of three from the Dodgers.

Next up, the Brewers (10-6) return to Miller Park to begin a three-game set with the St. Louis Cardinals (9-6) on Monday. Freddy Peralta (1|06.91 ERA19 SO) will get the start for Milwaukee. The Cardinals will counter with Dakota Hudson (0|12.79 ERA, 10 SO). First pitch is scheduled for 6:40pm.
