Brewers Khrush Orioles 8-3

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers finally had the blow out we've all been waiting for.

Winning Pitcher: Yovani Gallardo

Losing Pitcher: Bud Norris

HR: Khris Davis (9, which is 2 more than Chris Davis for what it's worth)

Yovani Gallardo was making his first start after injuring his ankle in his last outing. Turns out his ankle is fine. He was able to pitch reasonably well tonight despite struggling early with his command and getting squeezed by the home plate umpire. Not literally. I'm talking about the strike zone (sans the bottom).

Nelson Cruz proved to be his arch nemesis tonight hitting two solo home runs. Those were the only runs Gallardo was directly responsible for. Yo ended up pitching 6.2 innings before Ron Roenicke removed him for Brandon Kintzler who allowed the lone inherited base runner to score. He allowed a second hit and was removed with out recording an out. Ultimately Gallardo would be credited with 3 earned runs.

Will Smith came in and ended up pitching 1.1 scoreless innings with 3 strikeouts. He has been ridiculously good this year. He upped his strikeout rate to a staggering 33.6% and lowered his already low ERA to 0.36. Wow, guys and gals. Wow.

The Brewers continued clobbering the opposition. They got 10 hits exactly and I think that brings the consecutive 10 hit games to 7. It started early too as Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy drew one out walks. Carlos Gomez singled in a run.

By the 8th inning the Orioles had battled back to within a run but Carlos Gomez and Mark Reynolds got back to back hits. Rickie Weeks, in a pinch hit appearance, drove in Gomez. Then Khrush Davis made showed up to launch a 3 run home run.

That was more than they needed as the Orioles would not score again. The Brewers won 8-3 and improved their season record to 32-22 which Joe Block informs us is the best record the franchise has ever had at the 1/3 mark. Tomorrow is an off day. The Brewers next face the Cubs for a weekend series at Miller Park. If they can win the first two games they'll finish with a .500 record in the month of May (14-14) which isn't so bad all things considered.
