The Milwaukee Brewers (35-42) didn’t take too kindly in being Aaron Hill’s second cycle victim of the month, responding with a big offensive explosion against Arizona’s rookie phenom Wade Miley, and beating the Arizona Diamondbacks (39-38) 10-2 on Saturday night in Milwaukee.
Miley, who had only allowed four earned runs in his previous four games combined, brought less than his A-game tonight, and the Brewer’s were quick to capitalize.
Ryan Braun led the Brew Crew by pounding two home runs and collecting three RBI’s for the squad on the night. Former Arizona Diamondback Cody Ransom joined the hit parade and collected four RBI’s off of two hits on the night, one being a three run bomb to left-center field.
Arizona’a offense was silent for most of the evening, collecting only six hits all night. Miguel Montero was able to collect a home run in the losing effort.
The snakes will send Josh Collmenter to the mound tomorrow in the rubber game of the three game series.
