The Milwaukee Brewers (3-3) got a big win this afternoon, 4-2 in 10 innings, to win the series over the Chicago Cubs (3-3) at Wrigley Field.
Brandon Woodruff got the start for Milwaukee and pitched a heck of a game. Woodruff went 7 shutout innings and allowed only one hit while striking out eight.
Lorenzo Cain hit a solo home run in the top of the eighth inning to score the first run of the game and give the Brewers a 1-0 lead. But Devin Williams, who hasn’t pitched well in his two appearances so far this season, came in in relief of Woodruff and gave up a leadoff home run to Joc Pederson in the bottom of the eighth to allow the Cubs to tie the game.
Josh Hader came in to pitch the bottom of the ninth and struck out two batters while also allowing a walk.
In the top of the 10th inning, Lorenzo Cain hit his second home run of the game (and season), this time it was a three-run dinger to give the Crew a 4-1 lead.
J.P. Feyereisen came in to try and earn his first big league save. He got two quick outs, before allowing a Jason Heyward rbi single to make it a 4-2 ball game.
Feyereisen went on to walk the next two batters to load the bases with two outs. Manager Craig Counsell had seen enough and brought Brad Boxberger in the game to close it out.
Boxberger got Ian Happ to fly out to left field to end the game.
As mentioned, Lorenzo Cain hit two home runs and had all four runs batted in today, going 2-for-5.
Christian Yelich had good game at the plate as well, going 3-for-4 with a walk.
The Brewers will travel to Busch Stadium to play the St. Louis Cardinals (4-2) tomorrow for the Cards home opener. First pitch is scheduled for 3:15 PM (Central Time).
Corbin Burnes (0-1, 1.42 ERA) will get the start for Milwaukee. Adam Wainwright (0-1, 20.25 ERA) will get the start for St. Louis.
