The runs kept coming Tuesday night for the Milwaukee Brewers against St. Louis. Two in the first, two in the third, seven in the fourth, another six in the fifth, that adds up. The Crew notched an 18-3 victory. Christian Yelich went 3-4, and he scored three times. Designated Daniel Vogelbach and second baseman Keston Hiura each had four RBIs.
Milwaukee continues to hover just below .500, currently at 22-25. In a weaker National League, that puts the Brewers firmly in playoff contention. They’re only one back in the wild card standings. The two teams meet for a doubleheader tonight starting at 4:10 PM. A reminder that for this season, each game is only seven innings in a twin bill, making it imperative to score first.
