The Brewers top pitcher in 2017 to date has been Chase Anderson. Milwaukee starters as a whole have done an exceptional job this season but a scoreless inning streak of 21 2/3 is quite a feat. Anderson struck out four in 7 2/3 against the Giants Tuesday in a 5-2 win. It improved his record to (5-1) and dropped his ERA to 2.94 on the season.
Set-up man Carlos Torres allowed San Francisco’s two runs to score in the top of the ninth inning. Milwaukee had a comfortable lead at that time thanks to Hernan Perez. He hit his seventh home run of the season. Eric Sogard and Domingo Santana each had two hits and two RBI in the win.
The Brewers remain in first place in the National League Central for the 12th consecutive day. At (31-28) Milwaukee is tied with the Chicago Cubs (30-27). Jimmy Nelson will toe the rubber for the Brewers in the third of the four-game series with the Giants tonight at 7:10.
