Brewers Win Again 9-0

From Sportsline.com:

After winning seven straight games, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been anything but lucky.

Los Angeles lost its third straight Tuesday night, falling to the Milwaukee Brewers 9-0 as Doug Davis pitched a four-hitter and Corey Hart drove in a career-high six runs.

The Dodgers have been outscored 27-8 in their last three games.

"When you don't score runs, you look flat," Los Angeles manager Grady Little said. "There is no getting around that. But we will put this game behind us and come back tomorrow and see if we will be ready to beat on somebody. Then when we start hitting the ball, starting having baserunners, we won't look flat anymore. I guarantee you."

Los Angeles, which had opened a 7½-game lead in the NL West on July 26, leads second-place San Diego just just one game.

"It's hard to get it going if you are not getting any baserunners, and we didn't get too many tonight," Little said.

Davis (10-9) struck out eight, walked one and retired his final 16 batters in his third career shutout, his first since a seven-hitter at Minnesota on May 21, 2005. He had lost his three previous starts since beating Pittsburgh on Aug. 15.
