Brewers Get Hammered by Marlins, 16-0

Brewers Get Hammered by Marlins, 16-0

That’s Brewers Manger Craig Counsell on last night’s beat-down at the hands of the Miami Marlins at Miller Park.

The Marlins scored a franchise-record 11 runs in the fifth inning on the way to a 16-0 shutout of the Brewers last night.  Garrett Cooper had two hits and scored twice for the Marlins in that epic fifth inning.

Six Brewer pitchers gave up 19 hits and starter Chase Anderson took the loss. 

Cooper, Starlin Castro and Brian Anderson homered, helping Miami score at least nine runs for the third straight game — matching a franchise record. It was the highest scoring performance for the last-place Marlins since a 22-10 victory at Texas on July 26, 2017, and their most hits since they had 22 last July 8 at Washington.

Miami’s Pablo Lopez pitched shutout ball for six innings while claiming his fourth win.  The lone bright spot for the Crew as the return of Travis Shaw to the lineup. Shaw had three hits and his double was Milwaukee’s only extra-base hit. 

Jimmy Nelson is scheduled to start tonight’s game against the Marlins, his first major league start in 21 months.

It’s also Nelson’s 30th birthday, so let’s hope that’s worth something.
