The Milwaukee Brewers started their road trip by dropping 3 of 4 games in San Diego and had plenty of trouble scoring runs. By the time they finished the 10-game trip, runs were not an issue and either were wins.
The Brewers knocked off Arizona 6-1 on Sunday, pulling off a 3-game sweep of the Diamondbacks. It also means they won 5 of the last 6 games on the trip and 6 out of the 10 games overall. It certainly didn’t look like that’s the direction this road trip was headed at the outset.
The Brewers routed Arizona 17-3 on Saturday night, then lefty Chris Narveson came back on Sunday, allowing just 3 hits and 1 run while pitching into the 6th inning to earn his 3rd win (3-0) of the season.
Narveson helped his cause by driving in a run. The Brewers also got home runs from Prince Fielder, Casey McGehee and Gregg Zaun.
The Brewers return home to host the Atlanta Braves starting tonight.
