There is nothing negative to say about this game which was an all-around excellent performance for the Brewers. Freddy Peralta got the start in the home opener and tossed six shutout innings while striking out seven batters.
Offensively the Brewers did not disappoint. They scored 10 runs in the game, seven of which came in the fifth inning. The Brewers got their first home run of the season from Brian Anderson and Brice Turang’s first career home run, a grand slam, broke the game open for the Brewers. The offense looked like a well-oiled machine. They were working counts, getting on base, and cashing in with runners in scoring position.

A more underrated positive from this game came from Bryse Wilson. The 25-year-old came in after Peralta and picked up the save after pitching the final three innings. Another thing to note; Jessie Winker is turning into an RBI machine for the Brewers. In his first 11 at-bats to start the season, he collected five RBI’s.
The final score in game one was 10-0. Overall an excellent way to kick off the series for the Brewers.
The Brewers dominated again in game two. Wade Miley got the start going up against Max Scherzer. The left-hander tossed six scoreless innings for the Brewers picking up his 100th career win.
Offensively the Brewers once again did not disappoint. The Brewers scored nine runs led by Brian Anderson who had six RBIs, three extra-base hits, and two home runs. The Brewers got to Scherzer early picking up two runs in the first inning via small ball. From that point on it was all power for the Brewers. In the sixth inning Tellez, Anderson, and Mitchell hit 3 straight home runs off Scherzer. That’s the first time the Brewers hit three straight home runs since 2018 and just the second time a team has done that off Scherzer. Additionally, the Brewers set off some more fireworks with Anderson and Mitchell clubbing back-to-back home runs in the seventh inning.

The game’s final score in game two was 9-0 which marked the first time the Brewers had back-to-back shutouts since 2020. Another excellent performance to keep the Brewers’ hot streak alive.
Corbin Burnes got the start for the Brewers in game three. The former Cy Young winner did not look sharp pitching just 4 ⅓ innings and giving up six runs.
The good news is the Brewers’ offense came to play once again. Joey Wiemer hit his first career home run, and Jessie Winker continued to be an RBI machine for the Brewers hitting a clutch 2-run double to tie the game at 6-6. The biggest hit of the game came from Garrett Mitchell, a walk-off solo home run to sweep the series.

The Brewers rookies are continuing to shine to start this season. Mitchell, Wiemer, and Turang combined for five home runs and 10 RBIs in the series. Overall this was an excellent series for the Brewers all around. Let’s hope they can keep this hot streak going against the Cardinals.
