The Milwaukee Brewers have dropped to third in the National League Central after being swept for three at Cincinnati.
The Reds outscored the Crew 21-8 in that series, as Milwaukee lost the finale on Wednesday 7-1 as Cincy scored five times in the third. Reds' starter Luis Castillo struck out ten in eight innings while Matt Garza had another rough outing for the Brewers, giving up five runs in two and two thirds' frames. The division leading Cubs won Wednesday night, dropping Milwaukee to four and a half games out of first while Saint Louis moved into second at four games back -- and the Crew remains two and a half behind Colorado for the final N-L Wild Card. The Brewers are off today (Thursday) and will open a weekend series against the Cubs tomorrow (Friday) night at Wrigley Field
