The Milwaukee Brewers (34-28) snap an 8-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Washington Nationals (23-39) inside Nationals Park. With the win, Manager Craig Counsell, the hometown kid, has tied Phil Garner as the franchise’s all-time managerial wins leader (563). One more win and Counsell will be in sole possession atop the all-time wins list in franchise history.
Jason Alexander got the start today for Milwaukee and went 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven hits, three walks and one run while striking out two batters. I thought Alexander pitched a really good game, it’s a shame he couldn’t get that last out to qualify for the win.
Hoby Milner (3-1) came in for Alexander and pitched a scoreless 1 1/3 innings and picked up the win.
Josh Hader pitched a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his 19th save of the season.
It feels nice to be back in the win column! I almost forgot what the felt like. The 8-game losing streak was the longest since the 2015 season.
Willy Adames had his first solid game in his return from the IL and went 2-for-4 at the plate with an RBI double in the third inning and then hit a 2-run home run in the fifth inning.
Omar Narvaez and Tyrone Taylor also each picked up two hits respectively.
The Brewers have an open date tomorrow before returning to action on Tuesday, June 14th when they take on the New York Mets (39-22) at Citi Field. First pitch is scheduled for 6:10 p.m. (Central Time).
