Losing Pitcher: Dillon Gee
HR: Jonathan Lucroy (12), Khris Davis (17), Ryan Braun (14)
Sorry, but I missed half of this game so it's going to be an abbreviated recap tonight, but better than no recap, right?! Anyway, things took off quickly for the Brewers offense with a solo shot from Jonathan Lucroy.
In the second inning the Brewers really opened things up. Jean Segura drove in Khris Davis and Mark Reynolds with a triple. He would also come around to score on a single by Carlos Gomez. Gomez would steal and then score on a Lucroy base hit.
Rickie Weeks and Khris Davis hit back to back doubles in the third to give the Brewers a 6-0 lead. Khris Davis would tack on another run in the sixth inning with a solo shot of his own. The final two Brewers runs came on a 2 run home run to deep left in the seventh inning off the bat of Ryan Braun.
Matt Garza had a complete rebound from his last start. The only run he allowed came from a Lucas Duda home run in the seventh inning. Garza went 8 complete innings allowing 2 hits and 1 walk. He struck out 4. Tom Gorzelanny finished out the game only allowing 1 baserunner to reach on a walk.
The Brewers are now in possession of the best record in the National League. The other meaningful NL Central clubs were off today so the Brewers now have a 3 game lead on the Cardinals and Pirates as well as a 6 game lead on the Reds.
Tomorrow's game starts at 7:10 and pits Yovani Gallardo against Zack Wheeler.
