HOUSTON, TX (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers have lost 10 road games in a row for the first time in 20 years. Friday’s loss was a bitter 4-3 defeat as Houston rallied for two runs in the ninth inning to win it.  An RBI single by Brian Bogusevic ended the Astros’ five-game losing streak and was the team’s first walk-off win in more than 10 months. Houston has tasted victory just five times in its last 39 games. Houston trailed 3-2 entering the ninth and Brett Wallace walked to lead off. Pinch-runner Tyler Greene stole second and made it to third on John Axford’s wild pitch. Steve Pearce’s single tied it and he was knocked in by Bogusevic. Axford took the loss on his eighth blown save of the season. Ryan Braun had doubled in the first run for Milwaukee. Rickie Weeks had three doubles on the night.  Game two of the series takes place tonight with coverage on WHBL beginning at 5:30.
