cheap Junior Lake jersey made Lohse pay for a hanging slider, and the rookie hit his first career grand slam to lead the Chicago Cubs jerseys 8 5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers jerseys on Friday.
“Just spun right there,” Lohse said of the pitch to Lake. “The frustrating thing is wholesale baseball jerseys I was just one pitch away a couple times and I just didn’t make the pitch. It happens, but it’s frustrating. Unfortunately it cost us the game early.”
With one out and runners on first and second, Nate Schierholtz singled to drive in the first run. Lohse followed with a walk to Ryan Sweeney and one batter later, Lake homered on a 1 0 slider.
Lohse gave up 11 hits and seven runs, with three strikeouts and one walk.
“He missed location a lot,” manager Ron Roenicke said. “And when he missed location, they didn’t miss the pitch. He didn’t make too many quality pitches there the first inning.
“After that, he was a little bit better. The last two innings he was pretty good, the last inning was the best.”
It was the second rough outing in three starts for Lohse.
On Aug. 27, he allowed five runs and 13 hits in 5 1/3 innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates jerseys.
Despite his recent struggles, Lohse has delivered a strong season, giving the Brewers jerseys 175 2/3 innings with a 3.59 ERA.
“You’re gonna have starts like that,” Lohse said. “You look around, guys have those starts. It is frustrating that it’s two out of three, but I look at the season as a whole.”
The Brewers jerseys’ offense had opportunities against Cubs jerseys starter cheap Chris Rusin jersey.
With right handed power hitter cheap Jonathan Lucroy jersey due up, Cubs jerseys manager Dale Sveum replaced the left handed Rusin with righty Carlos Villanueva (5 8) and he got the final out in the inning.

“He got his pitch count up, and I think he would tell you he didn’t have his best stuff or command today,” Sveum said. “But it was huge coming up with that hit, that’s for sure.”
It was the second baseman’s sixth home run as he tries to put together a strong finish to his rookie season.
“He’s doing a great job,” Roenicke said. “I’ll get him back out there again tomorrow at second. Hopefully we keep their run total down a little bit so we can score some runs.”
Gennett’s homer wasn’t enough as the Cubs jerseys added an insurance run when Donnie Murphy led off with a single and scored on shortstop Segura’s throwing error.
Kevin Gregg got the final three outs for his 30th save in 35 chances.
