It took four hours and 48 minutes and 11 innings to complete, but the Mayor of Ding Dong City, Travis Shaw, sent the Brewer faithful home celebrating. Sweet sassy molassy.
Tonight was an amazing game to be at and to work. We’re 27 games into the season and despite there only being 12,139 in attendance, this had the intensity and atmosphere of a playoff game.
The Brewers (17-10) took down the Dodgers (16-12), 6-5, in 11 innings.
The Crew never led in the game until Travis Shaw hit a RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning to score Mario Feliciano to win the game.
The Dodgers kept putting this game on a platter and the Brewers offense finally bit. Wong, Garcia and Shaw all drove in a run apiece in the 11th inning and all with a two strike count.
This game is silly.
Brandon Woodruff postgame said: “These are the type of wins that go a long way.”
The Brewers will attempt a four-game sweep of the defending world champions tomorrow afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 PM (Central Time).
Alec Bettinger will get the start for Milwaukee tomorrow and make his Major League debut. Julio Urias (3-0, 3.23 ERA) will get the start for Los Angeles.
