The Gold team is off to a 3-0 start in the Milwaukee Brewers Blue & Gold World Series at Miller Park.
The Gold earned a 4-1 victory on Thursday night, thanks to the first inning three-run home run off the bat of Logan Morrison.
Morrison is a non-roster invitee to camp and is making a strong bid to make the Brewers 30-man roster that will open the season next Friday in Chicago against the Cubs. Currently, the Brewers 40-man roster is full and they would have to cut a player to make room. But Morrison had a good spring and has picked up in this summer camp, where he left off. Not to mention, he would give the Brewers another left-handed power bat.
Morrison’s blast came off of Wily Peralta, who eventually settled down, allowing no more runs in 3 2/3 innings of work. Peralta allowed four hits in all with no walks while striking out one.
Right-hander Josh Lindblom allowed a run on four hits over five innings to earn the win for the Gold team. Devin Williams and Justin Grimm also turned in solid relief efforts in the game. [Read more…]
