Williams' streak ends in Brewers loss

When new Milwaukee Brewers closer Devin Williams slips up, chances are, so does the team.


Williams saw his 30-inning scoreless streak come to a close Wednesday night on a walk-off homer as the Brewers lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-8.


The Brewers jumped out to a 4-0 lead thanks to RBI hits by Kolten Wong in the first inning and Willy Adames and Rowdy Tellez in the second inning. The Pirates scored the next seven runs, capped off by a Oneil Cruz two-run homer to make 7-4 after seven innings. The Brewers would tie the game in the eighth inning with Adames and Tellez once again driving in the runs. 


Williams came in during the ninth inning to keep it a 7-7 ballgame, but Bryan Reynolds took him deep to end the game and the streak. It was the first run given up by Williams since May and his first homer given up since last September.


The Brewers and the Pirates will wrap up their four-game set Thursday afternoon at 12:35 p.m.
