Longballs Spoil Good Start For Villanueva And Brewers

Carlos Villanueva looked like he was gonna make everyone forget about the loss of Yovani Gallardo for the season Friday night. He was cruising right along in Houston through 4 scoreless innings and a 4-0 lead. But then the 5th and 6th innings came. Villy gave up 2 runs in the 5th and then 4 in the 6th, all 4 of those runs coming on three straight HR's by the Astros. The Astros never looked back and won 7-4. Not a good start to the post-Yo part of the season. Of course it didn't help that the Brewers left 12 men on base, they better start hitting better with runners in scoring position or things could get ugly quick for this team. They now stand at 16-13 which is 2.5 games back of division leading St. Louis.
