Coming through in the clutch, Brewers top Red Sox 6-2
BOSTON — The World Series Champion Red Sox were the ones receiving their rings and the pats on the back and the glory before Friday’s game at Fenway Park, but the Brewers were the ones celebrating a few hours later, following a 6-2 Milwaukee victory.
The Brewers got their fourth straight strong start, this time by Marco Estrada, and then solid relief work in holding down the potent Boston bats. Brandon Kintzler got the win thanks to a ninth inning uprising.
Lyle Overbay’s first hit of the season was a big one, snapping a 2-2 tie in the top of the ninth by driving in Khris Davis and Scooter Gennett. Carlos Gomez followed with his fourth hit of the day to drive in Overbay. Four runs in the ninth helped erase the team’s struggles in clutch situations that have been occuring since the start of the year. The Friday win evens Milwaukee’s record at 2 and 2.
