Craig Counsell is now the winningest manager in Milwaukee Brewers history after Wednesday night’s 10-2 win over the Mets. Craig earned his 564th career win, breaking a tie with Phil Garner.
The Brewers offense finally exploded on Wednesday, especially in the 5th inning where they scored seven runs. The Brewers hadn't scored seven runs in a full game since May 31st.
Coming into the 5th inning, the Brewers had a 3-1 lead. Victor Caratini walked with the bases loaded, Lorenzo Cain singled in a run, Jace Peterson hit a two-RBI double, Willy Adames hit a two-RBI single, and Andrew McCutchen hit an RBI single to right field to cap the scoring. The Brewers opened a 10-1 lead. The Mets would get one more run, but that was it, resulting in a 10-2 final.
Corbin Burnes bounced back after a rough outing last week against the Phillies. Burnes went six innings, struck out eight Mets, allowed just two earned runs, and didn’t walk a batter.
The Brewers will go for the series win against the Mets on Thursday night at 6:10pm in New York.
