Brewers Record 1st Loss, 0-7

From Sportsline.com:

Chris Capuano (1-1) allowed four runs -- three earned -- three hits and four walks in 6 1/3 innings. He struck out seven.

"Five and one is a great start, but I'm not happy to be the first pitcher to lose a game for us this season," Capuano said.

Easley's first homer of the year put Arizona ahead, and the Diamondbacks made it 4-0 in the seventh after second baseman Rickie Weeks dropped a throw from shortstop J.J. Hardy for an error.

Capuano loaded the bases with a walk to Jeff DaVanon, then forced in a run by walking Clark, who was pinch hitting.

"Tony really worked to draw a walk, and that really broke his heart," Melvin said of Capuano.

Craig Counsell followed with a two-run single.

"I thought I threw the ball well until the last inning, when I kind of crumbled," Capuano said.
