Milwaukee Brewers need 10 innings to beat Detroit Tigers on Monday, 3-2
MILWAUKEE — Luis Urias hit a drive that bounced over the wall and brought home Omar Narvaez with the winning run in the 10th inning as the Milwaukee Brewers edged the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Monday.
The Brewers won their fifth straight and snapped the Tigers’ three-game winning streak.
“He told me before the inning when we were going to the dugout,” Brewers shortstop Willy Adames said of Urias’ game-winning hit. “He said, I’m going to walk it off.’ I said, ‘I know you got it.’ It was amazing to watch it.”
The Tigers were starting a six-game road trip after posting their first home sweep of the New York Yankees since 2000. Detroit fell to 4-1 in extra-inning games.
Adames hit a two-run homer for the Brewers. while Akil Baddoo had a game-tying solo shot for the Tigers in the seventh.
Both teams opened the 10th inning by bunting over their automatic runners to third, but only the Brewers capitalized.
“The runner-on-second, extra-inning rule brings excitement,” Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said. “Everybody’s on their feet, immediately in scoring position. It brings back fundamentals.”
After falling behind 1-2 in the count with one out, Urias fouled off two pitches before his drive off Jose Cisnero (0-2) hit the warning track in right-center and bounced over the wall. Urias’ first career walkoff hit was credited as a single.
Milwaukee trailed 1-0 until Adames hit a 3-2 pitch from Daniel Norris over the right-field wall with one out in the sixth. Detroit had taken the early lead on Jonathan Schoop’s two-out single in the sixth.
Brewers starter Corbin Burnes struck out seven and allowed six hits, two walks and one run in six innings.
