It was an exciting weekend of baseball as the Milwaukee Brewers battled the San Fransisco 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: 6-4 Giants
Corbin Burnes got the ball in game one and allowed fove runs in six innings of work, two of those runs were earned.
Milwaukee got their bats going in the first inning. Willy Adames had an RBI single and Owen Miller was able to score during a pickle. The Crew was able to chalk on two more runs in the fifth inning to get a 4-2 lead. Tyrone Taylor scored on a throwing error and Miller followed with a sac fly. However, after some unearned runs allowed by Burnes and a home run allowed by Hoby Milner, the Brewers dropped game one.
Brewers vs. Giants Game Two:
Final Score: 4-1 Giants
Colin Rea was on the bump for game two and looked sharp. The right-hander scattered three runs over six innings. Unfortunately, the Brewers were not able to provide Rea with any run support. Milwaukee mustered one lone run courtesy of MIller’s RBI single in the ninth inning and lost the game.
For some extra theatrics, Craig Counsell was ejected from the ballgame in the fourth inning. Giants’ pitcher Alex Cobb disengaged and made two throws over to first base. According to the rules, this is a balk, however, no balk was called, and that upset Counsell.
Brewers vs. Giants Game Three:
Final Score: 7-3 Brewers
Adrian Houser picked up the win in his season debut for the Crew. The sinkerballer allowed two runs in four and two-thirds of an inning. Unfortunately because of some pitch count issues Houser wasn’t able to go very dee. All things considered, this was a solid outing.
Milwaukee provided Houser with steady run support throughout the game. William Contreras got it started with a two-run blast in the second inning and Adames added on another with a sac fly in the third inning. The Brewers stayed quiet in the fourth inning before striking again in the fifth inning when Adames hit his 100th career home run, a two-run shot to put the Crew up 5-2. Christian Yelich and Adames had additional RBIs in the ninth to provide the Brewers with some insurance runs. Those runs came in clutch when Devin Williams gave up a home run before shutting the door.
The Brewers continued their losing streak for the first two games but were able to get enough production from their bats to snap the streak in the final game. Let’s hope this win provides Milwaukee with some momentum they can bring into their next series.
