Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke shook up his lineup again and this time it worked, leading to a 16-4 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday at Miller Park.
With the Brewers trailing 1-0 in the 1st inning, Corey Hart stepped back into the leadoff spot and delivered a monster home run to left-center to tie the game. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy, hitting in the clean-up spot for the first time in his career, delivered a solo home run to left to make it 2-1 Brewers.
Lucroy also had a 2-run single and a grand slam home run to knock in a career high 7-runs for the game.
The Brewers scored in double digits for the first time this season with Lucroy lifting his average to a team leading .342. His 27 RBI’s is one behind Ryan Braun.
Now the question is, will Roenicke leave Lucroy in the 4-spot. The Brewers manager said he certainly likes Lucroy hitting behind Aramis Ramirez.
Zach Greinke (5-1) pitched 6-innings for the win and improved to 14-0 lifetime at Miller Park.
The Brewers open a 3-game series against the San Francisco Giants at Miller Park tonight.
