by Kelsey Cunniff

The Milwaukee Brewers played host to the Oakland A's for the final game of a  three-game series. The A's won against the Brewers 6-1 Wednesday afternoon.

The Brewers suffered without left-fielder Ryan Braun who sat out for the game due to a lingering thumb problem.

In the first inning, Carlos Gomez's triple to center field scored Segura for a 1-0 Milwaukee lead.

At the top of the fifth inning, Oakland's Jed Lowrie scored from third when Seth Smith grounded into a double play.

Yovani Gallardo (4-6) allowed six hits and five earned runs in six innings to lose for the fifth straight time in his last six starts.

The A's broke the 1-1 tie with five runs in the seventh to win the game, and ultimately the series against the Brewers 2-1.
