Marlins Vs. Brewers Score Update: Josh Johnson Roughed Up Early

After two close losses to the Milwaukee Brewers in the first two games of their four game series, including a blown save by Heath Bell after a furious comeback by the Fish on Tuesday, the Brewers have jumped out to an early 5-1 lead over the Marlins.

Josh Johnson was roughed up in the second inning, giving up five runs. Johnson walked in the first run for the Brewers to the the game at one all, then gave up a single to Cesar Izturis to surrender the early lead. Milwaukee picked up three more runs in the inning, all on singles or ground outs, to come away with a big early lead.

For Miami to avoid their third loss in a row in the series, Johnson is going to need to settle in and hope the Marlins bats come alive.
