Brewers Sweep Reds; Thames Says He's OK After Hamstring Injury

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers complete a three game home sweep of Cincinnati with a 9-4 victory on Wednesday. First baseman Eric Thames left in the eighth inning after his left hamstring tightened up, but manager Craig Counsell says it’s not serious, and the Major League home run leader says he expects to play in Milwaukee’s next game tomorrow night at Miller Park against Atlanta. The Brewers scored five runs in the first inning to put Wednesday’s game away, as Milwaukee pounded out seven hits in that frame, the most by the Brewers for an opening inning since August of 2009. Thames did not homer for the first time in three games, but Brewers’ shortstop Orlando Arcia went yard, and Scott Schebler homered twice for the Reds as Joey Votto and Adam Duvall also homered for Cincy. Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta struck out seven in five innings, giving up four runs as he improved to 4-1.
