Miami was looking to get back to five hundred on Wednesday night, but instead dropped to two games below it after falling to the Brewers 4-1 in game three of the four game series.
Milwaukee first got on the board against Jarred Cosart in the bottom of the third. An Adeiny Hechavarria two base throwing error put Jean Segura in scoring position with nobody out, and Segura third on an appeal to first base before scoring on a Wily Peralta sacrifice fly.
The Brewers loaded the bases with one out in the fourth, and a Matt Clark sacrifice fly made it a 2-0 contest.
Wily Peralta was solid for most of the night, but a Marcell Ozuna seventh inning home run cut the Brewers' lead in half.
Cosart was pulled after six innings during which he allowed two runs and striking out seven.
Clark homered against Sam Dyson in the seventh, and Dyson allowed a Carlos Gomez RBI single to give the Brewers a 4-1 advantage.
Miami got a break in the first, when Christian Yelich threw out Jonathan Lucroy looking to score from second on an Aramis Ramirez single. The play was reviewed, and the call on the field stood despite the fact that Jarred Cosart was so confdient Lucroy was safe he resumed warmup tosses until the call was made.
Dan Jennings and Carter Capps pitched well in relief.

Goat of The Game: Sam Dyson (-.151 WPA)
