Moustakas HR in 14th Nabs Victory for Brewers, 6-3

A two-run homer by second baseman Mike Moustakas in the 14th inning led the Brewers to a 6-3 victory in Houston last night. 

Milwaukee starter Brandon Woodruff matched the Astros’ Justin Verlander for seven innings.  The Brewers won for the fifth time in six games despite striking out 24 times — 15 of them against Verlander. 

Moustakas, Ryan Braun, Eric Thames and Yasmani Grandal had home runs. Christian Yelich extended his hitting streak to 10 games on two hits. Adrian Houser picked up the win, as six Milwaukee pitchers held Houston — one of baseball’s strongest lineups — to five hits in 14 innings. 

The Brewers are off today– then send undefeated Zach Davies against the Giants in San Francisco Friday.
