Brewers Offense Scores Early and Often in 7-3 Win Over Reds

Is it time to call the Milwaukee Brewers offense hot? It just might be.

The Brewers have scored at least six runs in seven of their last eight games, including Friday night's 7-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds. With the win, Milwaukee pulled within a game of the Reds for first place in the NL Central.

The Brewers scored right away with three doubles in the first inning. That gave Milwaukee a 2-0 lead.

In the second inning, Joey Wiemer hit a two-run home run to extend the lead for Milwaukee to 4-0. 

On the mound Corbin Burnes didn't allow a base runner until the fourth inning and didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning. In the fifth inning, Joey Votto hit a two-run home run to cut the Milwaukee lead in half, at 4-2.

But the Brewers struck right back. Willy Adames hit a two-run home run to put the Brewers up 6-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, Milwaukee added another run to make it 7-2.

The Reds scored a run in the ninth inning, but that would be it. Milwaukee won 7-3 and took the first game of a crucial three-game series against the Reds.

Milwaukee is 48-41. They host the Reds on Saturday afternoon in the second game of the series at 3:10pm at American Family Field.
