Brewers hang 10 runs in the 8th inning to propel them to a series opening win over the Chicago Cubs at American Family Field. Keston Hiura hit one of the two home runs in the 8th inning. The other HR sent to the stands by new fan favorite Willy Adames. The last time the Brewers recorded 10 runs in an inning was back in 2010 against the Nationals according to Baseball Reference. Four of those runs were plated thanks to a grand slam by Craig Counsell.
A big 8th inning shouldn’t take away that Freddy Peralta was dealing once again in his start, pitching 6 innings giving up 2 earned runs, 2 hits, and striking out 8.
Devin Williams did struggle once again out the bullpen. However, he was able to escape a bases loaded jam in the 8th inning. Williams would end up getting the win in tonight’s game.
