It’s too little, too late for the Milwaukee Brewers, but they’re starting to play like most thought they could at the start of the season.
Ryan Braun broke an 0-for-18 slump with an 8th inning RBI double to lead the Brewers to a 3-2 come-from-behind win over Cincinnati, sweeping the Reds in the 3-game series.
The sweep of the Reds comes after the Brewers were swept last weekend by the Cardinals.
Carlos Gomez clubbed a solo home run in the 6th-inning and drove in the tying run with a run scoring single in the Brewers 2-run 8th.
Randy Wolf started and pitched well for the Brewers but didn’t get the decision.
John Axford was awarded the win, retiring all three hitters he faced in the 8th inning. Newcomer Jim Henderson worked the 9th to record his second save in as many days.
The Brewers are off today. They’ll open a 3-game series in Houston against the Astros on Friday night.
