Brewers get the “W” in Craig Counsell’s debut as manager, 4-3 victory over the Dodgers
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers rallied for three runs in the eighth inning to win in Craig Counsell’s managerial debut, a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.
Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw was denied his 100th career win, and took a no-decision.
The Brewers overcame a 3-0 deficit with one run in the sixth and three in the eighth in Counsell’s first game since taking over for Ron Roenicke, who was fired Sunday night.
Hector Gomez and pinch-hitter Gerardo Parra opened the sixth with consecutive singles to cut the lead to 3-1.
Gomez pulled the Brewers within a run at 3-2 in the eighth with his first career home run. Adam Lind chased Kershaw with a pinch-hit double, and Carlos Gomez greeted reliever Chris Hatcher (0-3) with a tying RBI double. Gomez advanced to third on Jason Rogers’ groundout and then scored on infield single by Ryan Braun.
