Zach Davies became the second Brewers starter this year to take a no-hit bid into the seventh inning. Chris Carter provided all of the offense for the Brewers with two home runs. Jeremy Jeffress struggled in the ninth to allow the Athletics a chance, but kept the tying run from scoring to complete the win.
For the second straight night, the Brewers starting pitcher (Chase Anderson) dominated the Athletics offense, holding them to two hits. This time, the bullpen also kept the Athletics in check, and the Brewers offense scored early to complete the sweep.
