The Milwaukee Brewers are riding a five-game winning streak after taking down the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 2 of the series. The Brewers have yet to lose on their current road trip, which will conclude today.
Let’s take a look at three players who shined and three players who struggled last night.
1. Carlos Gomez: Gomez went 3-for-5 with a home run and was just a triple shy from hitting for the cycle. The Brewers’ centerfielder is hitting .361 on the season. It looks like he was the right choice for the leadoff spot.
3. Tyler Thornburg: Thornburg dominated in relief last night. He pitched two scoreless and hittless innings while striking out two. Roenicke is beginning to trust him in late-inning situations.
2. Justin De Fatus: De Fatus entered the game with his team trailing 7-4 and left the game down 9-4. He gave up two runs, including a Mark Reynolds bomb, in his one inning of work.
3. Scooter Gennett: Gennett was the only Brewers starter who didn’t join the hit column, as the second baseman went 0-for-4. He did drop down a nice bunt, however.
