Milwaukee Brewers get to wild Astros ace Dallas Keuchel for 3-2 win
MILWAUKEE — Jimmy Nelson struck out nine in six innings, and the Milwaukee Brewers took advantage of early wildness by Houston ace Dallas Keuchel in a 3-2 win over the Astros on Sunday, April 10th.
The AL Cy Young Award winner walked four in the first inning and gave up a two-run single to Aaron Hill. Keuchel (1-1) left with two outs in the sixth with a career high-tying six walks, including an intentional pass to Ryan Braun in the fourth.
Domingo Santana added an RBI double in the fourth for rebuilding Milwaukee, which took two of three in the interleague series against the AL West contenders.
Nelson (1-1) settled down after allowing a leadoff homer to deep left to Jose Altuve on the game’s first pitch. Jeremy Jeffress pitched a perfect ninth for his third save.
