Brewers prevail in slugfest
Milwaukee maintained their push for baseball’s playoffs with a 13-12 win over the Reds after a wild game in Cincinnati.
The Brewers banged out 22 hits and scored 13 runs – and it was still barely enough to beat their National League Central rivals in 10 innings yesterday (Thailand time).
Their pitchers suffered badly, however – starter Freddy Peralta gave up five runs in 4 1/3 innings and Josh Hader gave up four earned runs in less than a full inning.
The Brewers finally put the Reds away in the 10th. Milwaukee (74-60) moves to within a half game of the division-leading Cardinals – who lost to the Pirates – for the top wildcard spot in the NL.
