The Milwaukee Brewers have had some memorable Mother’s Day moments throughout the years, and Tyrone Taylor added his name to the list today.
Taylor had an RBI single in the top of the 10th inning to lift the Brewers (19-16) past the Miami Marlins (15-18), 2-1, in the series finale. Milwaukee is now 4-1 in extra inning games this season.
Winning is fun….fact of life.
The Brewers are a MLB best 34-20 (.630) on Mother’s Day.
Today marked the end of a stretch where they played 17 consecutive days without an off day. Despite that and the numerous injuries, the Crew still managed to win three of the five series which is impressive.
It was a magnificent pitching effort by both teams quite frankly today. It was 1-1 after nine innings, and both runs came on two solo home runs.
Brett Anderson was reinstated from the IL and started today and went three innings on a pitch count. Brad Boxberger went one inning, followed by Eric Lauer who pitched two very good innings.
J.P. Feyereisen came in for an inning and allowed Lewis Brinson to tie the game on a solo shot. Brinson has had some great success offensively against his former team.
Devin Williams, Josh Hader and Drew Rasmussen finished off the game. Rasmussen earned his first save in the MLB.
Tyrone Taylor went 2-for-5 today, including the game winning hit. Travis Shaw went 2-for-5 as well. Daniel Vogelbach went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and a walk.
The Crew will have an open date tomorrow before they host division rival the St. Louis Cardinals (21-14) at American Family Field starting on Tuesday, May 11. First pitch for Tuesday’s game is scheduled for 6:40 PM (Central Time).
Freddy Peralta (3-1, 3.38 ERA) is the scheduled starter for Milwaukee.
Kwang Hyun Kim (1-0, 3.06 ERA) is the scheduled starter for St. Louis.
