Brewers 3, Cubs 2: Last takes

MILWAUKEE | The Milwaukee Brewers won in dramatic fashion Saturday night against the Chicago Cubs. Christian Yelich came through again with a walk-off to give the Brewers a 3-2 victory.

Yelich doing Yelich things

On Friday night, Christian Yelich smashed a three-run homer to help the Brewers top the Cubs. Then, on Saturday night, the reigning NL MVP came through again. In the bottom of the ninth of a 2-2 game, the Cubs decided to pitch to Yelich. Yelich made them pay. He smacked a ball into left field for a walk-off win.

“Yelich, it’s like a Bonds moment for me,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “Those are good comparisons. I mean, I’ve seen Papi more than I saw Bonds, but they’re not missing. He’s not missing his pitch. And not only that — when it matters.”

Brewers manager Craig Counsell called it the best game he has ever seen Yelich play and added that the last at bat is the kind of at bats MVPs have.

Hader limits damage

The Brewers found trouble in the eighth inning. Reliever Junior Guerra started the frame walking Victor Caratini. Ben Zobrist followed with a single to put runners on the corners ending Guerra’s night.

Drew Pomeranz then entered only to walk Ian Happ to load the bases. Counsell then made the call to his weapon, Josh Hader. With no outs, Hader struck out the first batter he faced, Nicholas Castellano, on three pitches. But then he gave up his first career bases-loaded walk to Anthony Rizzo, forcing in the go-ahead run. Hader settled in after though. He got Kris Bryant to pop out and struck out David Bote.

The 2-1 lead didn’t last long however. Yasmani Grandal led off the bottom of the eighth with his 25th dinger on a solo shot to tie it at 2-2. Hader kept the game tied pitching a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

What’s next?

The Brewers (73-68) will look to take the series from the Cubs (76-65) on Sunday afternoon. Adrian Houser (6|53.45 ERA93 SO) will take the mound for the Brewers opposite of Jon Lester (12|94.19 ERA, 147 SO). First pitch is scheduled for 1:10pm.

Bats come alive, Brewers beat Pirates 9-7

The offense has been hard to come by for the Milwaukee Brewers as of late. On Monday night, it finally exploded. The crew took down the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-7 to win game one of the three-game set.

Christian Yelich led the way for Milwaukee. He smashed two home runs to help the offense.

“When you go 4-for-5 with two homers, I don’t care who you are, it’s an enormous night,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “It was a great night. He has the ability to put us on his back, offensively. He has done it before. He did it for a pretty long stretch last year. Tonight was a night he did it again.”

Yelich had plenty of help too. Lorenzo Cain, Eric Thames and Orlando Arcia combined for seven hits, five runs scored and two runs batted in.

The Brewers made it interesting in the end though. It was a win that came easy despite the offensive outburst.

Jordan Lyles pitched a solid game in his second start for the Brewers. In five innings of work, he allowed just one earned run on five hits.

“Jordan pitched very well for us,” Counsell said. “Jordan is executing pitches; that’s what he’s doing. His breaking ball has been really good. He threw more sliders tonight. We should have escaped through five with one run, really.”

Milwaukee took an 8-3 lead into the bottom of the eighth. Freddy Peralta then had some problems finding the strike zone. He gave up a three-run triple to Kevin Newman pulling the Pirates within two, 8-6.

Josh Hader took the ball and was able to end the team’s losing streak by getting Josh Bell to pop-out.

Next up, the Brewers (58-56) take on the Pirates (48-64) Tuesday night. Chase Anderson (5|23.73 ERA90 SO) will get the start opposite of Steven Brault (3|14.15 ERA, 53 SO). First pitch is scheduled for 6:05pm.
