Brewers skid into break

The Milwaukee Brewers ran into a hot Cincinnati Reds team over the weekend, dropping its third straight against their NL Central rival by a 3-1 margin. 


The Reds got on the board first in the opening frame when Joey Votto drove in Jesse Winker only to be matched in the sixth inning by the Brewers with a RBI hit by Jackie Bradley, Jr. In the top of the ninth, Nick Castellanos caught up to a 97 m.p.h. fastball from Josh Hader to drive in two runs. The Brewers were retired in order to end the game.


The Brewers still enter the All-Star Break with an over four-game lead in the NL Central over the Reds.  


Omar Narvaez was added to the National League All-Star team over the weekend,  joining Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes, Freddy Peralta, and Josh Hader to the roster in Colorado. Prospect Ethan Small already kicked off the All-Star Game festivities by participating in the MLB Futures game Sunday. Small gave up a pair of runs in two-thirds of an inning in an 8-3 win for the National League.


The Brewers also made two picks on the first day of the 2021 First-Year Player Draft, selecting Boston College outfielder Sal Frelick with the 15th overall pick in the first round and second baseman Tyler Black of Wright State University with the 33rd overall pick. More information on both players from the Brewers is below:
