Baseball notes: Brewers, Booyah pick up victories

The Brewers' Corbin Burnes and the Booyah's Mykel Page each went at least seven innings of shutout ball in Sunday's baseball games.


In MLB action, Burnes nearly went the distance in Sunday's 8-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds. He collected 25 of the game's 27 outs, striking out 12 in the process. Angel Perdomo finished things off with a pair of strikeouts. The Brewers got things going in the first inning when Rowdy Tellez was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. They broke the game open in the fifth inning when Tyrone Taylor hit a two-run double and Jackie Bradley Jr. clubbed a two-run triple to make it 5-0. Christian Yelich (7th inning) and Wily Adames (9th inning) slugged homers to cap off the scoring for the Brewers. The team will head home for a series against the Kansas City Royals. Its game on Tuesday has been moved to 3:10 p.m. so people can tune into the Milwaukee Bucks and its potential Finals-clinching game later in the evening.


In Northwoods League action, the Green Bay Booyah got back to their winning ways with a 4-1 win against the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders. Page did not allow a run in seven innings while striking out three. Dalton Pearson's fourth-inning single drove in a pair of unearned runs. He would get that elusive RBI in the eighth inning on a sacrifice fly. Dayson Croes added an insurance run with a RBI single. The Dock Spiders would get on the board in the bottom of the ninth with a Ryan Lasko fielder's choice off of Mikade Johnson, but would get no closer. The Booyah are now off for the next three days for All-Star action. Max Wagner and Logan Lee will represent the Booyah in the league's Midsummer's Classic. 


In the Midwest League, The Peoria Chiefs used four pitchers to shutout the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Sunday afternoon at Dozer Park for a 2-0 victory.  Wisconsin outhit the Chiefs 5-4, but couldn’t push a run across the plate in the series finale.  The six-game set ended with both teams winning three games. Tyler Reichenborn doubled to start the fifth for Peoria (25-41).  He was still at second with two outs.  Imeldo Diaz sent a grounder towards left, but David Hamilton cut the ball off deep in the hole to hold Reichenborn to third base.  However, Matt Chamberlain followed with an RBI single to right to score Reichenborn and the Chiefs were up 1-0. Moises Castillo made it 2-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning when he greeted Wisconsin reliever with a lead-off homer.  The Chiefs hit at least one home run in each of the last eleven games between the two teams this season. 

Wisconsin (31-34) only got two more hits in the game off three Peoria relievers.  David Hamilton had a one-out single in the sixth and Hayden Cantrelle, who had doubled to start the game, singled with two outs in the eighth. Cantrelle has at least one hit in five straight games.  He is 7-for-17 during the streak.  Freddy Pacheco closed out the game by striking out the side in the top of the ninth for his sixth save of the season. Sunday marked just the third time Wisconsin has been shutout this season.  The Timber Rattlers had not been held scoreless in a game since June 18 when they lost 9-0 in a no-hitter at Quad Cities. Sunday was also the end of the season series between Wisconsin and Peoria.  The teams split the 24-game schedule as each team won twelve times. 

The Timber Rattlers are off on Monday.  They return to action on Tuesday at home against the South Bend Cubs for the first game of a six-game homestand.  First pitch on Tuesday night is 7:05pm.


In Door County League play, Institute beat West Jacksonport 6-4 while Sister Bay toppled Washington Island 3-0. Solo homers by Sam Forkert, Griffin Cole and Tom Sawyer were the only offense on the day in the Bays' victory.
