Comeback Crew Strikes in Atlanta

August 11, 2018 - 9:21 pm

ATLANTA -- Inches often make the difference between a hit and an out, and the Brewers found themselves on both sides of that on Saturday. While tied 1-1, two balls hit hard at Eric Thames in the third inning nearly cost the Brewers the game. Thames' first attempt was an impressive leap that knocked down a Freddie Freeman liner but likely turned it from a single to a double, and the second a ricochet that allowed Freeman to score.

But things evened out, and Ryan Braun, ranging to his right for a full-extension diving catch on a two-out ball off the bat of Ender Inciarte in the seventh, ultimately saved a run and allowed the Brewers to rally in the eighth for a 4-2 victory.
