Brewers win in late game heroics

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Monday night at the Great American Ball Park. Zach Davies drew his turn in the rotation as he faced off against Tanner Roark for the Reds. It was a cold matchup that winded up keeping a lot of balls from going out. 

 

The Brewers got right after it in the first inning when Jesus Aguilar drove in two runs on a double to open up the scoring. Mike Moustakas would continue his hot start to the season by adding an RBI double as well. Milwaukee would push their lead out to 3-0 early on after the first inning. 

 

Zach Davies had an efficient day on the mound against the Reds. He went five innings strong only allowing two runs to come across in the fifth. Cincinnati plated another run in the seventh off of Alex Claudio to knot the game up 3-3. 

 

It was late-game excitement again for Milwaukee in this one. In the top of the ninth with two outs, Christian Yelich ripped a double to left field. Ryan Braun stepped in next and ripped a double down the left field line to score Yelich and give the Brewers the lead. Josh Hader would trot in to close out the bottom of the ninth and earn his third save of the season. 

 

The two teams will now run it back tomorrow for the second game of the series. Jhoulys Chacin will take the bump to face off against Anthony DeSclafani of the Reds. First pitch will be thrown out at 5:40 from the Great American Ball Park. Milwaukee is now 4-1 early on in the season.
