The Brewers played their fourth straight game in Southern California and finally got a victory on Friday. After getting swept in a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels, Milwaukee defeated the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last year. The Brewers defeated the Dodgers 8-5 behind terrific performances from the offense and the bullpen. Hernan Perez and Yasmani Grandal each hit two-run home runs. Grandal played the last four seasons for the Dodgers before signing with the Brewers this past offseason.
Corbin Burnes started on the mound for the Brewers and he struggled, allowing 5 runs in just 4 1/3 innings. The bullpen cleaned things up and pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings. Matt Albers was the first replacement for Burnes and he picked up the win.
The Brewers continue their series in Los Angeles Saturday night at 8:10 PM.
