Milwaukee Brewers Snap Losing Streak, Craig Counsell Ties Phil Garner in Wins

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.

Up Next:

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).
