The Milwaukee Brewers (13-8) beat the Chicago Cubs (10-11) this afternoon, 6-0, to win another series at Wrigley Field.
It’s always a great day when you can say the “first place Milwaukee Brewers,” it’s never too early to say that!
The Brewers jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first after Travis Shaw drew a bases loaded walk. But the offense couldn’t capitalize on more opportunities.
That score held up until the top of the ninth, when the Brewers scored five runs in the inning.
Nothing like a few Am Fam Insurance runs, am I right?
Brandon Woodruff (2-0) pitched a great game, going six innings while striking out eight. Woody only allowed two hits and two walks.
After having three hits in yesterday’s game, Keston Hiura had another tough day at the plate. Hiura went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and left six runners on base. His average so far through 21 games is .145, at some point the Brewers are going to have some decisions to make if this continues but any move likely won’t happen until after the minor league seasons begin.
The Brewers will host the Miami Marlins at American Family Field tomorrow, April 26. First pitch is set for 6:40 PM (Central Time).
Corbin Burnes (2-1, 0.37 ERA) will get the start for Milwaukee. Trevor Rogers (2-1, 1.64 ERA) will get the start for Miami.
