Box Score

It was a small marathon for the Brewers tonight, and unfortunately, the Brewers ended up on the wrong end of it. Blaine Boyer walked in the winning run in the eleventh inning as the Brewers fell to the Diamondbacks 3-2.

Scoring started in the bottom of the second inning tonight. Yasmany Tomas hit a solo home run off of Chase Anderson to give the Diamondbacks a 1-0 lead. The Brewers would then tie it in the top of the fourth inning. Hernan Perez singled to lead off the inning, and Perez went to second on a wild pitch. With two outs, Orlando Arcia hit a single to right field for his first major-league hit and RBI.

The Diamondbacks regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth with the second home run of the day from Tomas. That was all that Chase Anderson allowed for the day. In six innings pitched, he allowed just the two solo home runs on four hits, with two walks and five strikeouts.

The Brewers tied the game back up in the top of the seventh inning. Keon Broxton hit a solo home run to tie the game at 2-2. That also ended the day for Braden Shipley, who allowed two runs on four hits as well. However, he walked six batters compared to just two strikeouts.

The game went to the bullpens after that, and they matched each other reliever for reliever. On the Brewers side, Michael Blazek, Carlos Torres, Corey Knebel, and Tyler Thornburg combined for four scoreless innings. Meanwhile, on the Diamondbacks side, Steve Hathaway, Randall Delgado, Enrique Burgos, Jake Barrett, Daniel Hudson, and Adam Loewen combined for five scoreless innings.

In the bottom of the eleventh, the Diamondbacks put together a rally against Blaine Boyer. Paul Goldschmidt led off the inning with a single, then Jake Lamb followed that up with another single. After striking out Yasmany Tomas, a fielding error by Orlando Arcia loaded the bases. With Wellington Castillo at the plate, Boyer walked him on five pitches to bring in the winning run and give the Diamondbacks a 3-2 win.

On offense, Jonathan Villar was the only Brewer who had multiple hits, and he reached base a total of four times. Ryan Braun and Martin Maldonado each walked twice in the game as well. Orlando Arcia collected his first hit tonight, but went 1-for-5 overall and is 1-for-11 in his first three games in the majors.

The series against the Diamondbacks continues tomorrow night. Matt Garza faces Patrick Corbin in game two of the series. First pitch is at 7:10 pm.
