Athletics Complete Sweep of Brewers with 8-6 Win

What seemed impossible just three nights ago, came to fruition on Sunday afternoon. The worst team in baseball, the Oakland Athletics, came to American Family Field and swept the Milwaukee Brewers. They secured the sweep with an 8-6 win over Milwaukee.

The Brewers got on the board first in the second inning when Christian Yelich hit a solo home run. It was the eighth of the season for Yelich. 

In the third inning, Owen Miller brought home Andruw Monestario with a double and Milwaukee led 2-0.

However, the lead didn't last long. The Athletics scored four runs in the top of the fourth inning with back-to-back home runs. Oakland took a 4-2 lead. 

In the sixth inning, the Brewers cut the deficit when Blake Perkins hit an RBI single to right field. That cut the deficit to 4-3. 

In the seventh inning, Oakland struck right back. A solo home run by Kevin Smith gave the Athletics a 5-3 lead.

Oakland added three runs in the ninth inning to extend the lead to 8-3. The Brewers scored three runs in the ninth inning, but Blake Perkins grounded out to end the game. Oakland won 8-6. The Athletics completed the sweep of the Brewers and won their fifth game in a row for the first time since 2021.

On the mound for Milwaukee, Freddy Peralta pitched five innings, allowed four earned runs, struck out five batters, and walked two.

The Brewers will try to bounce back as they hit the road for a quick series in Minnesota. It will be a two-game series against the Twins with the first game on Tuesday night after an off day on Monday. After the game, listen to the Baseball Postgame Show with Tim Allen on 97.3 The Game in Milwaukee and on the iHeart Radio App.
