The Milwaukee Brewers played host to the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday afternoon and lost 6-5. For the first time this year, the roof was open and the sun was shining down for the game. It was a fairly big crowd on hand for the contest that took place on Easter Sunday.
Los Angeles jumped out ahead in the first inning. In the first at-bat of the game, Joc Pederson took Brandon Woodruff deep to give them a 1-0 lead. After a Corey Seager double, Cody Bellinger would slap a hit to left field to score him. Milwaukee wouldn't answer back in the bottom half of the inning so the score would hold at 2-0.
The Dodgers would tack on two more runs in the second inning as Woodruff was having a tough time with the top of their order. Corey Seager hit another double that would score a run. Followed by another Cody Bellinger single to drive him in. That would leave Milwaukee trailing 4-0 after two innings.
The Brewers would storm back to make it a game though. Lorenzo Cain hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning. Then, Eric Thames hit a three-run bomb to center in the eighth inning. It wouldn’t be enough as Cody Bellinger hit a solo shot in the ninth to put Milwaukee away.
The Brewers will now travel to St. Louis to begin a series with the Cardinals. It will be the two teams third series of the early season. Adrian Houser will take the mound for Milwaukee. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:45 Monday night.
