The Milwaukee Brewers were out-homered 5-3 en route to a 12-8 loss to the New York Yankees on Sunday afternoon.
Kolten Wong gave the Brewers a 3-0 lead in the first inning with his homer to kick off the derby. The Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera and the Brewers' Tyrone Taylor traded dingers to make it 4-1 after two innings of play. The Brewers would lose the lead in the fifth inning after Aaron Judge and Anthony went back to back in the previous inning and three run-scoring knocks that made it 7-4.
Kyle Higishioka had one of those run-scoring hits in the fifth inning and added to his RBI total with his groundout in the seventh, only to see Aaron Hicks and Judge hitting homers to make it 10-4. The Judge home run gave him 59 on the season, just two behind Roger Maris for the American League record.
Rowdy Tellez's 31st homer run made it 10-6 in the eighth inning, but Judge's fourth hit of the day erased the ground gain. Jace Peterson's ground-rule double got them two run closer but four runs off from tying the game to keep the chance of a sweep alive.
The Brewers enter the week eight games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the NL Central title and two games behind the Phillies for the final Wild Card slot. The Mets will keep the New York flavor alive in the visitors' clubhouse for the next three nights, including a 6:40 p.m. first pitch on Monday.
