Jungmann struggled in the final month, allowing 28 hits, eight home runs, 13 walks and 24 earned runs in 22 2/3 innings (9.52 ERA) over his last five games. He finishes the season with a 9-8 record and a 3.77 ERA in 21 starts since coming up from the minors in early June.
Shane Peterson’s leadoff pinch-hit home run gave the Brewers their only run. It is the Brewers’ fifth pinch-hit home run of the season. Jason Rogers and Khris Davis both have two.
