MILWAUKEE (AP) — Elian Herrera hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning and Khris Davis followed with a solo shot, helping the Milwaukee Brewers hold off the Chicago White Sox 10-7 on Monday night.

Herrera, filling in at third for injured starter Aramis Ramirez, homered for the second straight night. His shot into the left-field stands off reliever Zach Duke (1-2) broke a 7-all tie.

Davis followed two batters later with his pinch-hit shot high and deep to left.

The Brewers bullpen squandered a 6-0 lead after Chicago scored five runs over the seventh and eighth innings. Adam Eaton’s two-out RBI single off Jonathan Broxton (1-0) had tied the game at 7 in the top of the eighth.

Francisco Rodriguez allowed a leadoff single to Jose Abreu in the ninth before getting Avisail Garcia to bounce into a double play. Rodriguez wrapped up his seventh save by getting Conor Gillaspie to ground out.

The Brewers have won 3 straight and 8 of their last 12 games.

    If Ramirez ever does get healthy let him ride the bench and go with Herrera. Ramirez mailed it in before the season started when he announced this would be his last season. Let the young guy play and gain some valuable experience.
