Pitching, pitching, and more pitching!
Obviously, with a rotation that starts with Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes, and a healthy and settled in Freddy Peralta, the Brewers are no stranger to low-scoring games. This particular game, which involved a record-setting game pace before an hour and forty-nine-minute delay, had both Peralta pitchers absolutely rolling.
It was the delay that put the Brewers’ bullpen in action and despite a few baserunners, Boxberger, Cousins, Williams, and Hader locked it down. Josh Hader got himself in and out of a bases-loaded situation in the 10th inning, but it was the 11th where Derek Hill of the Tigers poked a base hit to the outfield that was the difference-maker in game one of the brief two-game series in Detroit.
