The Brewers wanted to end the 5-game losing streak against the Rockies on Saturday and it always helps when you get a solid 3 innings from your starter. Taylor Jungmann did just that as the Brewers won 7-6 and Orlando Arcia was one of many drove in runs going 2-3 with his first solo home run in the bottom of the 6th.
As manager Craig Counsell said about Jungmann’s outing, “After the first batter, he was really good. Both breaking pitches were on today and those will play.”
Jungmann’s last outing came on Monday as the Brewers faced the Padres losing 8-2. He only went 1.1 innings with 1 ER, 2 BBs, and 1 HR, but had to be taken out with 45 pitches. Today, went much better as he had 4 Ks and only 1 BB.

“The third inning, I started mixing in a lot more changeups, which obviously has been my emphasis this offseason. Still a work in progress.” Jungmann said among other things, “That’s why it’s the best pitch in the game. If you can throw a good changeup, it’s the hardest pitch to hit.”
Although, the game was soon turned around with Tyler Cravy giving up 3 ER in his 0.2 IP in the top of the 4th, the offense for the Brewers kept up with the Padres as each starter besides Chris Carter had at least 1 hit. The leadoff hitter, Colin Walsh, was the only one with more than 1 RBI as he drove in 2 with a double in the bottom of the 4th.
Domingo Santana also kept his hot bat going as he went 1-1 with 1 2B, RBI, and 2 BBs as he was the first to get the Crew on the board in the bottom of the 1st. He has reached base in his last 7 at-bats and 10 for his last 11. Keon Broxton was the one who decided the game in bottom of the 7th as his line drive single that drove in Jacob Nottingham determined the 7-6 final.
Today, the Brewers go on the road to face the Cleveland Indians at Goodyear Ballpark at 3:05 CT. On the mound for the Crew is Chase Anderson who is 1-1 with a 17.18 ERA in 3.2 IP as he got roughed up by the White Sox in his last outing going 1.2 innings giving up 7 ERs. For the Indians, Josh Tomlin is scheduled to pitch as he’s pitched 3 Gs, going 5 IP with a 7.20 ERA. The Brewers now sit at an even record of 5-5-1, while the Indians are just below at 4-6 in Cactus League.
