Eric Thames bashes his way into Brewers' record book

Eric Thames bashes his way into Brewers' record book

Chicago scored four runs with two outs in the first inning off Chad Kuhl (1-2) and added five more in the second to give Brett Anderson (2-0) all the breathing room he would need.

Reds starter Amir Garrett struggled with the Brewers hitters, primarily Eric Thames.

-Going into Tuesday's action, he has reached base at least three times in seven games. Thames hit a solo shot deep to right field, while Perez hit this moon shot to center that bounced off the center of the score board putting the Brewers up four nothing. "He's not missing it".

He went right back at it in his second at-bat with a two-run home run to left, his 10th of the season and the best in the Major League Baseball at this point in the season. He hit.348 with 124 home runs, 379 RBIs and 64 steals in 388 games during three seasons in South Korea. Given the way both pitchers have pitched, I like the Reds and the value of the plus money.

"It has been fun to watch, I know that", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

Trailing 4-3, Blackmon lined a hanging slider from lefty Enny Romero (1-1) into the right-field stands. "If I think a lot, I get in my own head and that's when things go wrong for me". "You have to be that smart to be able to hit here". Garza got off to a late start this season because of a groin issue. Otherwise, Garza allowed four hit, three walks and struck out four with 94 pitches.

Petr Cech says Gunners must be flawless going forwards
The defeat for City means Guardiola will finish his first season at The Etihad Stadium without a trophy. They showed a united, determined and playful response.

Carlos Torres (1-2) pitched a scoreless inning of relief and was awarded the win. At one point, he was hitting around.400 with 47 home runs and 140 RBI's. Jesus Aguilar grounded out with the bases loaded in the eighth for the final run. Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw each have homered against Feldman in their careers, but only Braun has more than 10 plate appearances against the veteran.

In the past two weeks, Garza made two rehab starts for low Class A Wisconsin, allowing six runs (five earned) on 11 hits in 10 2/3 innings (4.22 ERA). He walked four and struck out one. Thames has more home runs in six games against the Reds (eight) than any other hitter in Major League Baseball has home runs overall.

Orlando Arcia's 42-game errorless streak came to an end when the Brewers shortstop committed two errors on Monday night. Schebler doubled in a run in the ninth. It was Blackmon's sixth homer of the season and followed a pinch-hit double from Pat Valaika - his first hit of the season. Hunter Pence added a key RBI single for insurance in the seventh. RHP Tim Adelman will have his start pushed back to Friday in St. Louis, and LHP Cody Reed will be moved to the bullpen.

Braun was pinch-hit for by Jesus Aguilar in the sixth inning due to a bruised left foot suffered when he fouled three pitches off his foot in his first at-bat. X-rays were taken but came back negative.

Thames became the first Brewers player to hit 10 home runs in the team's first 21 games. The right-hander retired Thames three times April 14 when he limited the Brewers to two runs over five innings despite walking five. Mesoraco is now on the disabled list following right hip surgery and is rehabbing with Double-A Pensacola. It will see Zach Davies (1-2, 8.24 ERA) on the mound for Milwaukee against Scott Feldman (1-1, 2.38 ERA) for the Reds. He is 2-1 with a 4.28 ERA in six career starts against them.
