All week the weather forecast was for rain, however the rains held off so that the game could be played.

The Diamondbacks came to play bringing their hot bats.  Kelton, Joey, Nick and Jake started the game with 3 singles and a double to open a 2-run lead. In the bottom of the first inning, it ended when the Diamondbacks pitcher made an unassisted play at first to keep the 2-0 lead.

For the Brewers, after a cold spell of only 2 runs in the last 20 innings, the Brewers awoke and put up runs in the 2nd, 3rd and 5th.
 


For the D'backs:
Kelton, Nick and Josh raised their batting averages going 2 for 2 each.

For the Brewers:
Quin, Jakob, Nico, Codie, and Rick had at least 3 or more hits each.
 

Beepe went 2 for 2
 

Philip was the hitting star of the game going 4 for 4 with two monster blasts to the outfield.

Will got his first hit of the season. GREAT JOB!
 

Rodrigo got his first hit of the season. CONGRATS!
 

Jenny raised her average with another key hit. WAY TO GO SLUGGER!

The Brewers racked up four runs on six hits in the second and five runs on eight knocks in the third en route to an 11-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

After holding the Brewers scoreless in the top of the first, thanks in large part to an unassisted putout at first base by Nicholas Corritore, the Diamondbacks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom half of the inning when Kelton Brunner, Joey Cornacchia, Corritore and Jake McDowell hit four consecutive singles. With the bases loaded and nobody out, McDowell came up with the big blow when he stroked a two-run base hit, knocking in Brunner and Cornacchia. The D'backs threatened to add to their lead, but the Brewers escaped without further damage.

Although the Brew Crew opened up a 9-2 advantage in the third, the Diamondbacks refused to quit. With Brewers at first and second and two out in the top of the fourth, McDowell cleanly fielded a grounder by the pitcher's mound and beat the runner to second to get the third out. 

The D'backs had two runners on base with one out in each of the fourth and sixth innings, but couldn't get them home.

The Brewers closed out the scoring with two runs in the fifth.

 

For the D'backs: Brunner (run scored), Corritore and Josh Rodgers each went 2 for 2, while McDowell (two RBI), Cornacchia (run scored) and Milan Hortua added a hit apiece.
