Undefeated at Safeco: Brewers 10, Mariners 5

Otto Greule Jr

The Brewers opened their first trip to Seattle since 1997 with a big offensive night.

W: Kyle Lohse (8-7)
L: Joe Saunders (10-11)

HR: Yuniesky Betancourt (13, grand slam), Justin Smoak (12)

MVP: Martin Maldonado (+.306 WPA)
LVP: Kyle Lohse (-.103)

It's been 16 years since the Brewers lost a game in Seattle, and they've never lost one at Safeco Field. They kept both streaks alive with a 10-5 win tonight.

The middle innings were good to the Crew tonight, as they plated two runs in the third on Norichika Aoki's double, three runs in the fourth in an inning that featured a Martin Maldonado double and five in the fifth, including four runs on Yuniesky Betancourt's second grand slam of the season. Four different Brewers had multiple hits in tonight's game, and Jonathan Lucroy was the only starter that didn't reach base safely.

Tonight was the first time the Brewers have scored ten runs in a game since June 12 (h/t @Todd_Rosiak). That was more than enough for Kyle Lohse, who allowed a couple of runs in the third and another in the seventh but little else. He pitched seven innings and allowed the aforementioned runs on six hits, walking three and tying a season-high with seven strikeouts.

Ron Roenicke was ejected from tonight's game in the fourth inning for arguing a fan interference call that temporarily cost the Brewers a run. Carlos Gomez was sent back to third base on the play, but later scored anyway on Jeff Bianchi's single.

This series continues tomorrow when Tom Gorzelanny will look to continue the momentum against Hisashi Iwakuma at 8:10.
