Brewers win game, make deal for Escobar

The Milwaukee Brewers won on and off the diamond on Wednesday.

 

In Pittsburgh, the Brewers never trailed in its 7-3 victory over the Pirates. Avisail Garcia drove in the game's first run with an RBI single in the first inning before  Lorenzo Cain's two RBI double in the fourth inning made it a 3-0 advantage.  The Brewers doubled up the Pirates in the sixth inning Luis Urias drove in two on a double and Kolten Wong tallied another run with an RBI sacrifice fly. Tyrone Taylor ended the Brewers scoring with an RBI single in the top of the seventh inning. Rodolfo Castro provided the offense for the Pirates, hitting homers in the seventh and ninth innings to cut the deficit.

 

During the game, the Brewers announced it traded for infielder Eduardo Escobar from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for outfielder Cooper Hummel and infielder Alberto Ciprian. Escobar, 32, who was selected to his first All-Star Game, batted .246 with 22 HR and 65 RBI in 98 games with Arizona this season. He made 92 starts (61g at 3B, 31g at 2B). The switch-hitter entered the day among the National League leaders in HR (T5th) and RBI (T6th) according to the Brewers Media Relations Department. 

 

The Brewers are back in action Thursday at 6:05 p.m. in Pittsburgh.
