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.
