Lorenzo Cain collected two hits and another former Royal, Mike Moustakas, added two hits and two runs to help the Brewers on offense. Wade Miley gave up two runs in five innings, and the Brewers' bullpen went four innings with only one hit and one walk and eight strikeouts. Six of the strikeouts came from Josh Hader, who pitched two innings.
