Herrera’s 2-run homer lifts Brewers over White Sox
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.
