This Weekend's Results

Brewers 6, Astros 4

For most of the game, this was a smooth ride for the Brewers. Scooter Gennett and Chris Carter homered in the first to build a 3-0 lead, and Ryan Braun also added a two-run home run. Meanwhile, Chase Anderson had a nice debut, pitching five shutout innings. However, in the ninth inning, the Astros put together a rally. They cut the lead to 6-3 on a Tyler White home run, and Preston Tucker had an RBI double to make it 6-4. With the winning run at the plate, a ground ball from Jose Altuve turned into an automatic double play that ended the game when Colby Rasmus over-slid second base, violating the new slide rule.

Astros 6, Brewers 4

It's only two games, but concern has to be creeping in a little for Wily Peralta. It was another disaster start as he allowed six runs in 4.1 innings. The Brewers offense did rally and get the score back to 6-4, and had the winning run at the plate in the bottom of the ninth. However, the Astros bullpen shut them down and held on for the win.

Brewers 3, Astros 2

What started out with an ugly first inning ended up turning into a nice pitcher's duel. The Brewers were behind 1-0 after one pitch, but took the lead in the bottom of the first with two runs. The pitchers settled in after that, with each team collecting only one more run. In the end, the Brewers came out on top with the 3-2 win.
