Milwaukee got 5 in the 1st on a 3 run homer and 2 run shot. Gophers tried to battle back but same story as we have seen much of this year just couldn't get any timely hits. Left the bases loaded at least a couple times in the game and at least 1 of them they didn't get any runs after loading them with 1 out. Some bad base running decisions late in the game also cost them one on a guy going halfway instead when he should've been tagging easy and another where guys setup to tag and the ball hit off the top of the wall and the outfielder was at least a good 5 feet away from the ball still. Some positive though Patrick Fredrickson pitched 2 innings and worked around a a leadoff baserunner each inning. Looked pretty comfortable and control was pretty solid aside from the 1 hit batter although it seems like Fredrickson has always had a tendency to hit a guy here or there. As much as you wanna win every game the midweek really doesn't mean much to the Gophers anymore as they will have to win the B1G tournament to get to the NCAAs. Big series this weekend with Ohio State to help solidify a spot in the conference tournament.
