Sliding into the leadoff spot for Kolten Wong Tuesday night, Tyrone Taylor had arguably the best game of hos career, collecting three hits, three RBI’s and his second home run of the season as the Milwaukee Brewers held off the Miami Marlins, 5-4 at American Family Field.
After surrendering one run to the Marlins in the top of the first, Milwaukee starting pitcher Adrian Houser homered on the first pitch thrown to him by Daniel Castano, tying the game at 1-1. That was followed up by Taylor’s solo shot, pacing a Milwaukee offense stymied just one night before by Miami rookie Trevor Rogers.
On the mound, Houser was good enough, giving up three earned runs on five hits in 5.2 innings, striking out seven and walking one. He got the win to improve to 2-2 on the young season.
Josh Hader picked up his fifth save to square the series at one game apiece. The rubber game is Wednesday afternoon at 12:40 at American Family Field.
