Share post:

Jackson Chourio drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a sixth-inning double and the Milwaukee Brewers held off the host Detroit Tigers 5-4 on Saturday.

Christian Yelich had two hits and drove in two runs, while Brice Turang reached base three times and scored twice.

Jared Koenig (6-1) tossed 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief to gain the victory. Trevor Megill collected his ninth save.

Milwaukee has won the first two games of the three-game series.

Brewers starter Freddy Peralta lasted only 3 1/3 innings, his shortest start of the season. Peralta issued five walks while giving up four runs (three earned).

Detroit starter Casey Mize (1-4) was charged with five runs (three earned) in 5 1/3 innings. Riley Greene scored two runs and Carson Kelly had two hits, a run scored and an RBI.

Detroit second baseman Colt Keith left the game in the third inning due to left knee discomfort. He crashed into right fielder Akil Baddoo on a William Contreras fly ball.

Both teams scored a run in the first inning. For Milwaukee, Turang drew a leadoff walk, moved to second on a balk and scored on Yelich’s single to right.

Peralta got into trouble by issuing one-out walks to Greene and Mark Canha. Gio Urshela’s single to left scored Greene.

Detroit increased its lead to 4-1 in the second. Baddoo drew a leadoff walk and advanced on Javier Baez’s single.

Kelly drove in Baddoo with an opposite-field single.

Baez was thrown out at the plate on Greene’s one-out fielder’s choice grounder. Canha then bounced a single to right to drive in Kelly. Right fielder Sal Frelick’s errant throw to third allowed Greene to come home.

The Brewers answered with two runs in the third. Chourio and Turang hit back-to-back singles. Keith was charged with an error on the outfield collision, which loaded the bases. Yelich hit a sacrifice fly before Turang scored on Willy Adames’ groundout.

Milwaukee took a 5-4 lead in the sixth on Chourio’s two-out double to left center off Shelby Miller, which knocked in Rhys Hoskins and Blake Perkins.
