Brandon Woodruff and Willy Adames stole the spotlight on Saturday night in Milwaukee in the Brewers 4-1 win over the New York Yankees.
Willy Adames hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the third inning to give the Brewers a 3-0 lead. It was his 30th home run of the season. With that home run, he passed Robin Yount for most home runs by a Brewers shortstop in a single season. Yount set the record in 1982.
The Yankees answered back in the top of the fourth inning when Josh Donaldson hit a solo home run to left field. The lead was cut to 3-1.
In the bottom of the fifth inning, Garrett Mitchell singled. Christian Yelich came to the plate and doubled to the wall in right field, scoring Mitchell from first base. Mitchell’s speed was on full display on the play.
On the pitching side, Brandon Woodruff recorded one of his best outings of the season. He pitched eight innings, allowed one earned run, struck out 10 batters, and issued just one walk.
Devin Williams pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save and the Brewers beat the Yankees 4-1.
The Brewers will go for the series sweep of the New York Yankees on Sunday afternoon at 1:10pm at American Family Field.
The next Realty Executives Baseball Postgame Show with Tim Allen will be on 97.3 The Game after the Brewers host the New York Mets on Monday night.
