Today’s game was an old fashioned shootout. And more often than not, when the Milwaukee Brewers are involved in a shootout, it’s their opponent who ends up bloodied.
Such was the case today. There was no pitching early. The Brewers scored at least a run in each of the first four innings. After building an 8-4 lead, Randy Lerch and the Brewers’ bullpen couldn’t hold it. The Indians scored in five of the first seven innings, including two in the seventh that would put this one into extra innings.
