The heroics of Mike Moustakas Saturday night gave the Milwaukee Brewers a much needed 8-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
It was just 1-1 entering the bottom the fifth when the Diamondbacks put up two runs thanks to run-scoring doubles by Carson Kelly and Zack Greinke. Eric Thames would answer for the Brewers in the top half of the sixth inning with a solo home run to make it 3-2 Diamondbacks. Moustakas dealt the big blow in the top of the eighth, taking a 2-0 pitch for a ride to the left-field bleachers, driving in Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun. The Brewers would add insurance runs in the ninth inning thanks to a Yelich double and an RBI single courtesy of Keston Hiura.
The two teams go for the series win at Chase Field in Phoenix at 3:10 p.m.
