Yesterday's Results

Royals 10, Brewers 2

It was just another bad game for the Brewers last night. Mike Fiers got blasted for six runs and was incredibly wild all night. Jonathan Broxton gave up another four runs. They managed to get just one run off of Joe Blanton, who was making only his second start in the majors since 2013. Meanwhile, former Brewers Lorenzo Cain and Alcides Escobar combined for four hits and five RBI in the game.
