Brewers Win Again
The Brewers routed the Miami Marlins 10-1 in their series final last night in Florida. The Crew put up three runs in the first on a Jonathan Lucroy bases clearing triple and never looked back. Carlos Gomez had a pair of triples and Jean Segura hit his 10th homer in the win. Alfredo Figaro struck out 4 and gave up just 3 hits in 7 shutout innings to notch the win. Ryan Braun sat out again with an ailing hand he hopes to play again on Friday night. The Brewers take today off and open up a three game weekend series in Cincinnati on Friday night. You’ll hear it on News-Talk 1450 KFIZ.
