The Brewers offense scored just their 4th run in the 1st inning this season. They had only 3 runs in the 1st inning in the previous 30 games. This was also only the 8th time this season in which the Brewers scored first.

Jedd Gyorko put the Crew on the board with a solo homerun in the bottom of the 1st inning. Gyorko would also hit another solo shot in the 7th inning.

Ryan Braun would add to the Brewers lead in the 3rd inning with a 2-out 3-run homerun. The homerun marked the 800th career extra base hit for Braun. He is now one of four active players with at least 800 career extra base hits.

Brewers starter Corbin Burnes was very sharp tonight, going 6 innings without giving up a run and striking out 10.

The two teams will face off in game 2 of the 4-game set tomorrow night. First pitch at 6:10 PM.
