The Brewers avoided a sweep Wednesday night by smashing the baseball to a 9-3 win over the Pirates at Miller Park. Milwaukee broke out in a five-run second inning. Khris Davis hit a two-run home run in the frame to get the scoring started.
Jonathan Lucroy added an RBI double and Aramis Ramirez belted a two-run double to help springboard Milwaukee into the next series appropriately called the “Cellar Dweller Series.” The bottom two teams in the NL Central will meet tomorrow at 1:20 PM.
Willy Peralta earned the win last night while allowing three runs on nine hits in six innings.
