Nationals Lose 7-5 To The Brewers

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Jim Edmonds entered as an injury replacement for Corey Hart early in the game and went 2-for-3 with three RBI, including the go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning, to lift Milwaukee to a 7-5 win over Washington in the opener of a three-game series.

Alcides Escobar went 3-for-4 with a run scored for the Brewers, who scored six unanswered runs to come away with the victory following a 4-4 road trip.

Kameron Loe (1-1) was credited with the win for throwing two scoreless innings, while Sean Burnett (0-5) took the loss for serving up Edmonds' homer.

Mike Morse paced the Nationals with two homers and four RBI, as the club failed to build off back-to-back wins against Cincinnati.
