Streaky Marlins Drop Third Game in Last Four Tries

The Marlins have cooled off following a strong stretch with three losses in four days

The Miami Marlins lost for the third time in four days as the Milwaukee Brewers came away 10-2 winners on Tuesday.

After winning 11 of 12 games, Miami has stumbled as of late. Prior to their long stretch of wins, the Marlins started the season slow. In just over a month, the Marlins have quickly proven themselves to be a streaky team. Wins and losses are coming in bunches with Miami languishing in fourth place in the division.

Miami had eight hits total in Tuesday's loss, and three of them went for doubles. Marcell Ozuna (3), J.T. Realmuto (8), and Christian Yelich (9) each had a two-base hit. Ozuna also added a single as part of a three-hit day for the center fielder.

Adam Conley had a rare bad outing by allowing four runs on seven hits in four innings of work. Conley has been pitching like an ace this season, but Milwaukee's offense proved to be too much. The lefty is now 2-2 with a 3.72 E.R.A after taking the loss on Tuesday.

Jose Urena was first out of the bullpen for Miami and did not fare much better than Conley. The right-hander gave up three earned runs of his own in two innings of work to let the game get away.

Miami was also sloppy in the loss as it committed two errors. For Realmuto, a throwing error was his fourth of the season. Justin Bour meanwhile was tagged with a fielding error which was his first of the year.

The Marlins will look to take the rubber game on Wednesday when Wei-Yin Chen takes the mound against the Brewers.
