Milwaukee right-handed pitcher Corbin Burnes is trying to land a spot in the Brewers starting rotation and his performance on Wednesday night moved him in that direction.
Burnes retired all 12 batters he faced, striking out seven, to lead Team Gold to a 3-0 victory over Team Blue in the Brewers Blue & Gold World Series at Miller Park.
Burnes hit 98 mph with his fastball, retiring Christian Yelich twice (strikeout & ground out).
Omar Narvaez clubbed a two-run homer in the second inning off of Brett Anderson. Anderson’s night was done after two innings due to a blister on his pitching hand.
