Willy Adames Leads The Offense To 12-8 Victory Over Pirates


Finally, the Brewers offense broke out of a slump.

There have been signs that the Brewers offense was making some steps forward, but recent struggles to score had many concerned. However, things were looking up on a Tuesday night in Pittsburgh as the bats exploded for 12 runs in a victory over the Pirates.

Willy Adames got the scoring started early with a 2 run homer in the first inning. Then in the 5th, after a Kolten Wong bunt single to break a 0-16 slump, Adames struck again with a 2 RBI double into the left field corner, giving the Brewers a 4-1 lead.

The Pirates answered back with three runs in the bottom of the 5th, chasing Brandon Woodruff from the game in an uncharacteristic short start for him, going just four innings and allowing four runs on seven hits.

But the Brewers were able to come back again, in an unusual fashion; by stringing hits together in a rally. They haven't done it much this year, but it all got started with a Rowdy Tellez single, then a Tyrone Taylor RBI triple, an Omar Narvaez RBI single, then a Jace Peterson single, Kolten Wong RBI single, and finishing with a Willy Adames 3 run moonshot to cap off a 6 run inning for the Crew.

Adames finished the day going 4-for-5 with 7 RBIs (tie for franchise record) with a single, double, and two homers.

The Pirates, to their credit, would not go away, scoring in the 7th and 8th innings before the Brewers added two more insurance runs in the top of the 9th. They would need them as Jose Urena would give up another run in the 9th and Josh Hader would come in to get the final out of the game and close out a 12-8 victory over the Pirates.

Next up for the Brewers is another 5:35 pm start against the Pirates with Aaron Ashby slated to pitch for Milwaukee and Bryse Wilson starting for the Pirates.
