The clock is ticking for the Milwaukee Brewers, who — after a 9-1 thrashing at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday — are on the verge of seeing a season of hard work wiped away.
Matt Adams and Oscar Taveras homered off Kyle Lohse — two of a mere four hits St. Louis managed — and the Cardinals beat the Brewers 5-3 at Miller Park to regain a four-game lead in the NL Central.
Cardinals 5, Brewers 3 - Brewers starter Kyle Lohse allowed five earned runs in four innings in Milwaukee's loss to the Cardinals. Lohse later discussed his poor performance on the mound.

CHICAGO | Geovany Soto hit two two-run homers and drove in all the Cubs' runs in a 5-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.
MILWAUKEE | Aramis Ramirez lingered in the batter's box after a called strike three in the first inning. Zack Greinke had the Cubs where he wanted them from the start.
If the typical Cubs fan is not put upon enough, then he's got an additional decades-long burden -- he's under-rated.
