Ranking Milwaukee Brewers last five Memorial Day Wins: #1
The Milwaukee Brewers most recent memorial day win came shortly after the acquisition of Willy Adames and this 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers is a perfect symbol of what that trade has meant to the Brewers as a whole, and also to Luis Urias.
The Brewers were down 1-0 going into the bottom of the 6th inning after former Brewer Jonathan Schoop singled off Corbin Burnes, the lone run Burnes allowed in his six innings pitched. In the bottom of the 6th Willy Adames launched a home run that gave Milwaukee a 2-1 lead.
Trevor Richards allowed a home run to Akil Baddoo that tied the game. Brent Suter, Josh Hader and Brad Boxberger combined for 3.1 scoreless innings in which they allowed no hits, no walks and punched out four batters.
Then in the bottom of the 10th inning, with Omar Narvaez starting on second base, Keston Hiura laid down a perfect bunt to move Narvaez to third and Luis Urias, in what was the beginning of a resurgence for him being the everyday third baseman, hit a ball to deep right field that bounced over the wall, driving in the game winning run.
Who knows what Monday’s double header in Chicago holds for the Brewers, but hopefully its more fun, more great baseball and two more wins. Two young lefties, Ethan Small and Aaron Ashby will get the starts for Milwaukee in these games, with Small making his MLB debut, which only adds to the excitement.
