After a disappointing loss last night, the Milwaukee Brewers (65-44) came from behind to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates (41-67) this afternoon, 4-2, from American Family Field.
Freddy Peralta, who got a no-decision, went six innings, allowing two runs on six hits and striking out nine.
Brent Suter (10-5) got the win today and Devin Williams picked up his first major league save.
Milwaukee was trailing in the Bottom of the Seventh inning, 2-1, and the offense hadn’t really done much to that point and the crowd was mostly silent.
Luis Urias worked a two-out walk and Manny Pina reached on an infield single to put two runners on with two out. Manager Craig Counsell went to the bench and had Rowdy Tellez pinch hit for Brent Suter.
On the seventh pitch of the at-bat, Tellez launched a 3-run homer into the stands to give Milwaukee the 4-2 lead and “Rowdy!” chants were as loud as could be from inside American Family Field.
It was a much needed win for the Brewers after the Reds won today and some questionable decision making in last nights loss.
This is a beautiful thing to see:
The Milwaukee Brewers have an open date tomorrow, something they need with a depleted bullpen, before they host the San Francisco Giants (67-40) to American Family Field on Friday, August 6.
First pitch for Friday’s game is scheduled for 7:10 PM (Central Time).
Also, it’s never to early to start making plans for 2022 as Major League Baseball announced the 2022 schedules for each team. Here’s the 2022 Milwaukee Brewers schedule:
