There was a tremendous pitcher’s duel in Chicago tonight, as the Brewers edged the White Sox 1-0 in 10 innings.
With the Brewers scoring in the top of the 10th, Zack Greinke was able to get the win. He allowed three hits in nine innings of work. Closer John Axford, who has been very shaky, took over from there and pitched a hitless inning for his 13th save.
Chris Sale was just about as good for the White Sox, allowing four hits in eight innings. Addison Reed followed that with a perfect ninth, but Jesse Crain couldn’t keep it going in the 10th and took his first loss of the year after Aramis Ramirez doubled and Rickie Weeks singled in pinch-runner Nyjer Morgan.
Today’s game was the second this season to go scoreless into extra innings. The Giants beat the Phillies 1-0 in 11 innings on April 18. Matt Cain went nine scoreless and Cliff Lee went 10 scoreless in that one, with Clay Hensley eventually getting the win.
