The Milwaukee Brewers faced a tough loss against the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim. The Brewers struggled with their offense, especially with runners in scoring position, which ultimately cost them the game. Despite getting an early lead, rookie starter Carlos F. Rodriguez couldn’t maintain it, and the Brewers couldn’t mount a late comeback.

The Angels had to make a last-minute change to their starting pitcher, with José Soriano being replaced by Zach Plesac due to injury. The Brewers were missing their star catcher William Contreras, who was available off the bench after a recent injury.

Plesac had a strong start, retiring the Brewers’ batters in order in the first inning. On the other side, Rodriguez also had a clean first inning, setting the tone for the game. The Brewers took the lead in the second inning with a two-run homer by Jake Bauers.

However, the Angels fought back in the third inning, scoring three runs and taking the lead. Rodriguez struggled in the fourth inning, giving up a home run to Zach Neto, extending the Angels’ lead. The Brewers managed to score a run in the fifth inning with a home run by Brice Turang, but their offense couldn’t capitalize on opportunities with runners in scoring position.

Rodriguez was replaced after 4 2⁄3 innings, giving up five runs. Plesac continued to dominate, pitching six strong innings for the Angels. The Brewers had a chance to tie the game in the seventh inning but failed to score with runners in scoring position.

Despite a scoreless eighth inning by the Brewers’ pitcher Elieser Hernández, the offense couldn’t produce in the ninth inning against the Angels’ closer Carlos Estévez. The Brewers ended up losing the game 5-3.

Overall, it was a tough day for the Brewers, with Rodriguez struggling on the mound and the offense failing to deliver with runners in scoring position. The team will look to bounce back in their next game against the Angels, with Tobias Myers taking the mound. Fans can catch the game on MLB Network or Bally Sports Wisconsin.
