The Brewers came into the second game of a double-header losers of three straight. In each of those game three loses, the Brewers had Freddy Peralta, Brandon Woodruff, and Corbin Burnes starting the game. This evening the Brewers had Brett Anderson starting. Unlike the three previous games, this one ended in a win as the Brewers took down the Mets, 5-0.
Brewers’ pitching was outstanding in this one. Brett Anderson gave the Brewers 4 innings of work that saw him give up nothing. He turned the ball over to Jake Cousins in the fifth, and he also gave up nothing, demonstrating an outstanding slider. Brad Boxberger took the sixth and also put a goose egg on the board, although he walked the bases loaded only to strike out the side to end the inning. So Brewers’ pitchers did their job.
So did Brewers’ hitters. Manny Pina took care of things in the top of the second inning, Pina followed a walk to Jace Peterson with an opposite field shot over the right field wall that made it 2-0.
The Brewers added on in the top of the sixth, Willy Adames took Mets’ reliever, Drew Smith, out of the yard. It was his 13th of the season.
Then Luis Urias put the game out of reach in the top of the seventh. With Jackie Bradley Jr. on second base, Urias launched his 12th home run of the season to make it 5-0.
With the game almost a foregone conclusion after the Urias homer, Josh Hader took a seat from warming up, and Hunter Strickland enter the game in the bottom of the ninth. Strickland did what every other Brewers’ pitcher did in this contest. He gave up nothing.
The Brewers head home to face the Cincinnati Reds. Milwaukee will send Adrian Houser to the mound to face off with Tyler Mahle. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 CT. The game can be seen on Bally Sports Wisconsin and heard on WTMJ 620 as well as the Brewers Radio Network.
