Ryan Braun‘s two-run home run in the eighth inning of today’s series finale in St. Louis sparked a late-game comeback and ended a team record 32-inning scoreless inning streak. The home run brought the score to 3-2. In the ninth, Yuniesky Betancourt‘s RBI double tied the game, and Jonathan Lucroy‘s solo home run in the tenth gave the Brewers the 4-3 victory.
The Cardinals had won the first two games of the series 2-0 and 8-0. Prior to that, the Cubs held the Brewers scoreless from the third through the ninth innings on Tuesday, leading into Wednesday’s postponed game.
On ending the drought, Braun said, “This was like a sigh of relief for everybody. We haven’t been playing good baseball in any aspect of the game. It was nice to finally get a win.”
The 3-8 Brewers now return home for a six-game homestand against the Giants and Cubs.
