Game two of the Yankees doubleheader with the Brewers went no better as they suffered a sweep in Milwaukee.  Larry McCall got the start and while he was decent, he wasn’t nearly good enough.  He gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts in what was his first of two major league starts in his career.  Ken Clay was tagged for three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Chris Chambliss singled twice and drove in a pair.  Fred Stanley was the only other Yankee to reach base twice with a single and a walk.
