It was an exciting weekend in Milwaukee as the Brewers battled the Giants. Here is a complete recap of the series and what to expect next from the Brew Crew.
Brewers vs. Giants Game One:
Final Score: 5-0 Giants
Julio Teheran made his Brewers’ debut for the first game and looked pretty sharp. The former 2x All-Star tossed five innings of one-run ball. Unfortunately, the Brewers were not able to provide Teheran with any run support. The Giants had a bullpen game and completely shut down Milwaukee’s offense.
Brewers vs. Giants Game Two:
Final Score: 15-1 Giants
Game Two of this series was the Brewers’ worst nightmare. Freddy Peralta was on the bump and allowed four earned runs in just 2.1 innings. To make matters worse, Willy Adames was hit by a foul ball in the bat of Brian Anderson. Adames was hospitalized and luckily is doing better. Brewers’ manager Craig Counsell says the shortstop could potentially rejoin the team at the end of next week in Cincinnati.
Moving back to the game, the Brewers mustered just one run at the plate. The run came in the first inning when Darin Ruf scored on a double play. This game also hosted the season debut of former top pitching prospect Ethan Small. Small allowed five runs in three innings and was sent back to Triple-A Nashville the next day.
Brewers vs. Giants Game Three:
Final Score: 3-1 Giants
It was a good old fashion pitchers’ duel in game three, Corbin Burnes went up against Logan Webb. After facing some scrutiny from his previous start the former Cy Young winner tossed seven innings of one-run ball. Unfortunately, the Brewers’ offense was shut down by Logan Webb. Similar to Burnes, Webb also tossed seven innings of one-run ball. The one run was courtesy of Victor Caratini’s RBI single in the seventh inning.
Brewers vs. Giants Game Four:
Final Score: 7-5 Brewers
Colin Rea went up against Alex Cobb in the series finale. Neither pitcher did particularly well, Rea tossed six innings and allowed four runs and Cobb allowed seven runs in four innings.
The Brewers put on their hitting shoes for the series finale after scoring just two runs in the first three games of the series. Wiliam Contreras’s RBI single and Brian Anderson’s two-run double got the party started in the first inning. Owen Miller’s two-run single and William Conteras’ two-run home run continued the fun in the second inning. The Brewers’ offense stayed quiet the rest of the game but was able to whole on for the win.
Overall this was a rough series for Milwaukee. The Brewers took just one of four games and specifically game two was a nightmare scenario. However, they seemed to figure it out in the final game. Let’s hope the Brewers can take the momentum from the final game into their next series against the Bule Jays.
