Braves pitcher Eric Stults failed to get past the fourth inning during Friday's 11-0 loss to the Brewers. Stults allowed seven runs on three hits over 3 2/3 innings of work. The seven runs were a season high for Stults. He also walked five batters and struck out five. His biggest mistake was surrendering a two-run home run to Ryan Braun in the first inning. Stults has given up 12 runs in his last two starts and he has not pitched past the seventh inning in any of his eight starts this season. Stults started in place of Alex Wood, who was scratched due to an illness.
