Sanchez throws away easy out, Bucs lose to Brewers
Question of the Day
Unfortunately for Sanchez, that’s not how it happened when it came time to make the play Sunday.
Milwaukee swept the series and won its ninth in a row.
The Brewers were leading just 2-1 in the sixth inning when Aramis Ramirez walked and moved to third on Lyle Overbay’s double.
“It would have been a much closer game if I didn’t butcher that play,” Sanchez said. “I take a lot of pride in my defense and I take a lot of pride in getting my pitchers through as many innings as possible.”
“We work with our catchers all the time on that exact play, usually everywhere we go. Field the bunt, clear the lane, make a throw,” he said. “He just didn’t finish the play. He just didn’t finish the throw.”
“He kept us off balance with his off-speed stuff. He was commanding the fastball to both sides of the plate,” Sanchez said. “He mixed in a changeup to righties extremely well, which you don’t see very often. He had four pitches working.”
Lohse (2-1) retired 12 of his last 13 batters. He was pulled with two outs in the ninth after giving up a single to Andrew McCutchen. Will Smith struck out Pedro Alvarez on three pitches to record his first career save.
Martin Maldonado got the first hit of the game as he lined a double off the right field wall leading off the Milwaukee third. Lohse sacrificed and Carlos Gomez hit a sacrifice fly.
