Brewers Blast Braves, Reclaim 2nd Place

The struggling Milwaukee Brewers weren’t struggling Tuesday night in a 13-1 whipping of a good Atlanta team.  Brandon Woodruff started the game and allowed only one run in six-and-two-thirds innings, claiming his 11th victory.  Christian Yelich hit a grand slam–his 33rd home run of the saeson– and drove in four.  Rookie Keston Hiura was three-for-three with a homer and Lorenzo Cain also went deep.  The Brewers leap-frogged St. Louis on their way back into second place in the National League Central Division, two-and-a-half games behind Chicago.  Chase Anderson starts for Milwaukee this afternoon. Our coverage on 940 WFAW begins at 12:35.
