Brewers still feel bruised and beaten

SHARE Brewers still feel bruised and beaten

The Milwaukee Brewers haven't had much to be happy about recently. Seeing Chan Ho Park come to town couldn't have made the plummeting team feel any better.

The Brewers lost at home to Park and the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Monday night, leaving them with a major-league high 10-game losing streak and 0-6 against the Korean right-hander.

"He's pitched three quality games against us this season," Milwaukee manager Davey Lopes said. "We had some chances, but we couldn't get that big hit at the right time. That's why we're in this tailspin."

The streak topped Kansas City's nine-game skid from July 2-13, and left the Brewers with 22 losses in 27 games. Milwaukee last dropped 10 straight in May 1994 en route to a franchise record 14-game losing streak.

The Brewers probably wished rain had washed out their game against Park, who has a 2.21 ERA in nine career starts against them.

Park, who threw a two-hit shutout last Wednesday in Los Angeles, has allowed only 15 earned runs in 61 innings against the Brewers. He also won 1-0 over Milwaukee on opening day.

Park (10-6) gave up five hits — all singles — in 6 2/3 innings, striking out five and walking one.

CUBS 6, ASTROS 2: Corey Patterson and Miguel Cairo homered as Chicago earned a split of a four-game series.

Chicago left Houston with a three-game lead in the NL Central, the same margin the Cubs brought with them.

Kerry Wood (9-6) won for the first time in four starts since July 3, allowing two runs and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings and striking out five.

REDS 5, BRAVES 4: Pinch-hitter Todd Walker drove in the go-ahead run with a two-run single in a five-run eighth inning as Cincinnati rallied at Atlanta.

Tom Glavine took a 3-0 lead into the eighth, but Mike Remlinger (3-2) gave up a run-scoring triple to Ken Griffey Jr. and an RBI single to Sean Casey. Walker singled with the bases loaded off Jose Cabrera.

EXPOS 3, PHILLIES 0: Javier Vazquez pitched a seven-hit shutout and struck out 10 for Montreal.

Orlando Cabrera, Michael Barrett and Jose Vidro each had RBIs for the Expos. The host Phillies dropped to 4-8 since the All-Star break.

ROCKIES 8, GIANTS 2: Mike Hampton pitched a five-hitter as Colorado sent visiting San Francisco to its third straight loss.

Neifi Perez hit a three-run homer and drove in four runs for the Rockies, who won for just the sixth time in 31 games.

Hampton (10-7) was 0-5 with an 8.06 ERA in his previous seven starts. He allowed only two hits through seven innings before pinch-hitter Shawon Dunston hit a two-run homer.

Barry Bonds hasn't homered since hitting two off Hampton last Wednesday. He has 42.

PADRES 4, DIAMONDBACKS 2: Phil Nevin went 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs as visiting San Diego won its fifth straight.

Woody Williams (7-8) allowed one run and six hits in five innings to win for the first time in three starts. Trevor Hoffman pitched the ninth for his 23rd save.
