The Milwaukee Brewers opened a three game series against their former division rivals, now in the American League Tuesday night and the Houston Astros laid a hurtin' on the Crew 10-1 at Minute Maid Park. Carlos Pena hit a three run homer off starter and loser Alfredo Figaro but the big blow came in a five run seventh with Matt Dominguez launched a grand slam home run off Tom Gorzelany. Dominguez finished with five runs batted in which made a winner of Jordan Lyles (4-1). The 22 year old scattered seven hits over seven innings with five strikeouts. The only Brewers run was scored in the third when Juan Francisco led off with a triple and came out on an infield hit by Scooter Gennett that tied the score at 1. The Brewers then loaded the bases with only one out but did not score again. Figaro lasted just 4 and a third innings, giving up seven hits and five runs. Francisco had three of Milwaukee's 8 hits. The only other highlight for Milwaukee (28-41), was a terrific running catch by Carlos Gomez who was racing up Tal's Hill in straighaway centerfield. The Brewers send Kyle Lohse to the mound in game two of the series Wednesday night. Pre-game coverage begins at 6:35 PM on WTAQ,
