The 31-year old rookie pitched another gem for the Milwaukee Brewers as they took down the Nationals 1-0.
Martin Maldonado hit a homer off of Max Scherzer-the only gaffe made by the starting pitcher and Guerra kept the Nationals bats relatively quiet in the win. The game started off with a gaffe, as Ryan Braun was called out for batting out of order an error that Skipper Craig Counsell took responsibility for after the game.
Junior Guerra, has been a key piece of the Milwaukee Brewers rebuild, and one writer thinks that he’ll be a cornerstone throughout the entire rebuilding process. The Milwaukee Brewers also sent Keon Broxton back down to Colorado Springs as they called up infielder Will Middlebrooks.
Middlebrooks has spent all season in Triple-A where he has worked on improving his swing reports Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Middlebrooks last played in the show last season with San Diego where he was eventually sent down before coming to the Milwaukee Brewers.
With yesterday being the celebration of Independence Day, Jack Moore of BP Milwaukee had a look at the longest home runs from the Milwaukee Brewers so far this season. Junior isn’t the only Brewers pitcher with a successful June, Zach Davies has been impressive, which according to one writer is due to his diverse pitch selection.
