Brewers Slug Their Way To Victory

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers slug their way to an 11-7 Interleague victory against Boston in the Red Sox’ first visit to Miller Park in 14 years. The Brewers jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the first inning on pair of two run homers from Eric Thames and Keon Broxton but it was not enough for the Crew, who had to churn out six more runs in the fourth through seventh innings to secure their win. Broxton drove in four runs and fell a double short of the cycle, and Thames homered for the second time in two games as Milwaukee continues to lead the Majors with 55 home runs on the year. Left fielder Ryan Braun started for the first time in almost a week, and he hit a key double in the first inning after coming off a strained forearm flexor. Carlos Torres got the win in relief and is now 2-3, while starter Drew Pomeranz took the loss for Boston, which got a leadoff homer from Mookie Betts and a three for four night from Andrew Benintendi with a pair of RBI’s.
