Thames Homers Twice, Sets More Records As Brewers Win

(Milwaukee, WI) ¬†— ¬†Eric Thames is the first Major Leaguer to hit ten home runs this season, as his Milwaukee Brewers win an 11-7 slugfest at home against Cincinnati. Thames homered twice Monday night, as he tied a Brewers’ record set by Carlos Lee for the most homers in April — and with five games left, the 30-year-old first baseman needs four more blasts to tie Albert Pujols and Alex Rodriguez for the Major League record for the most dingers in the season’s opening month. Thames also set a new Brewers’ mark for runs scored in April with 24. Milwaukee never trailed, scoring four runs in the first and leading Cincy 10-4 after four. Reds’ rookie Amir Garrett dropped to 2-2, giving up both homers to Thames and one to Hernan Perez in three and one third innings — and Milwaukee’s Matt Garza went four frames in his first start of the year, as Carlos Torres got the win.
