ST. PETERSBURG, FL (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers only mustered three hits for the second night in a row as they lost at Tampa Bay 5-1 Tuesday night.  Fourteen of the Brewers' 27 outs came via the strikeout.  Their only run came on a sacrifice fly from Scooter Gennett.  It ruined another solid pitching performance from Matt Garza, who gave up a run on five hits in seven innings.  He left when the game was tied at one.  The Rays then scored four in the eighth.  Ben Zobrist had the game-winning hit with a run-scoring double, after he hit a solo homer off Garza.  Will Smith took the loss, falling to 1-3.  Rays' starter Alex Cobb struck out a career-high 12 in eight innings, as he won his sixth start in a row.  Cobb is now 7-6.  Ex-Brewer Grant Balfour fanned two more in the ninth.  Jonathan Lucroy had Milwaukee's first hit in the fourth inning.  Aramis Ramirez singled and scored in the fifth.  Gennett singled for the Crew's only other hit.  Tampa's Yunel Escobar was ejected in the eighth when he kept yelling "What? What? What?" with his head down after plate umpire Bill Welke called strike one on him.  Escobar slammed his helmet down after he was tossed.  Tampa Bay has won eleven of its last 12.  The Brewers have dropped three in a row and four-of-five.  Pittsburgh has moved into second place in the N-L Central just one game behind the Crew, with Saint Louis a game-and-a-half back.  Tampa and Milwaukee will close out their series today.  David Price, the subject of trade rumors, was still scheduled to face Milwaukee's Yovani Gallardo.  Pregame coverage on WHBL begins this morning at 10:35.
