The Milwaukee Brewers were shut out for the second consecutive game, falling to the Atlanta Braves 3-0 in the National League Division Series at Truist Park on Monday. The scoreless stretch now covers 20 innings, and the Brewers face a must-win game on Tuesday in order to stay alive in the playoffs.
On Monday, Braves pitcher Ian Anderson shut down the Brewers over 5 innings, allowing only three hits while striking out six. Atlanta then used four relievers, including closer Will Smith, to preserve the shutout.
Milwaukee’s starter Freddy Peralta went only four innings, despite giving up only three hits and no runs. Adrian Houser came on in the fifth inning and gave up the only runs of the game on a three-run home run by Joc Peterson.
Game four Tuesday is set to start at 4:07 pm from Truist Park. If the Brewers can manage to win Tuesday, the deciding game five will be on Thursday in Milwaukee at American Family Field.
