Brewers' bats come alive in victory over Reds

The Milwaukee Brewers got their first home win in the truncated season on Sunday, defeating the Cincinnati Reds 9-3.


It was a coming-out party for Christian Yelich, who has struggled at the plate in the early part of the season. His RBI triple tied the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the third and credited with another RBI when he earned a bases-loaded walk during a six-run, sixth inning for the Brewers. Logan Morrison also drove in a run in the same fashion while Manny Pina, Keston Hiura, and Justin Smoak collected their RBI on singles. Yelich struck again in the seventh inning, following Hiura's solo shot with a home run of his own to make it 9-2. The Reds would get one more run in the ninth, but Alex Claudio was able to shut the door in relief to help the Brewers get their sixth win on the season. Brent Suter got the win in relief for the Brewers, pitching two innings of scoreless relief after Brandon Woodruff struggled through four innings. 


The Brewers are back in action Monday night when their border battle with the Minnesota Twins takes place at Miller Park beginning at 7:10 p.m.
