The Milwaukee Brewers scored five unanswered runs to beat the Cincinnati Reds Thursday afternoon 6-4.
An RBI double by the newly acquired Omar Narvaez opened things up in the first inning for the Brewers, but that lead was short-lived. The Reds scored four times in the bottom of the third inning, led by former Brewer Mike Moustakas' own RBI double. The Brewers played small ball in the top half of the fourth inning to close the gap thanks to a throwing error by Moustakas on a ball hit by Orlando Arcia and an RBI single by Jace Peterson. RBI ground outs in the sixth and ninth innings and an RBI double by David Freitas put the game away for the Brewers to give them their seventh win of the spring.
It is a big day for Christian Yelich as he starts with the potential announcement of his nine-year, $215 million extension at Friday morning press conference and ends it with his spring debut against the San Francisco Giants.
