Shaw hits long HR, Davies shines as Brewers blank Braves 7-0

Shaw hits long HR, Davies shines as Brewers blank Braves 7-0

After putting up five runs in the first two games of their series against the Braves, the Brewers bats woke up in game three as they blew out Atlanta 7-0. Phillips hit the first pitch he saw from Nelson into the first row of seats in the left-field stands for his sixth home run. Phillips was wearing special cleats with the name of his son, Micah, who celebrated his fourth birthday on Sunday. Phillips doubled home a run and scored when Flowers drove an opposite-field single to right.

In his first win against Atlanta at Miller Park on April 30, he gave up three runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and no walks through his 6 2/3 innings in a 4-3 victory. Of the 99 pitches he threw, 71 were for strikes.

"He was getting ahead of guys, working it both ways, more left to right than up and down", said Milwaukee's Travis Shaw, who said Dickey was even tougher to hit when shadows became a factor in the middle innings.

"We try not to get into lulls for too long and today was another example of that", Shaw said.

Paolo Espino pitched the final two scoreless innings for the Brewers.

"I think he'll be fine", Snitker said. "That's one of our better innings of the year".

Atlanta, which has won three straight, took a 2-0 lead in the first when Phillips homered and Tyler Flowers got an RBI on what could have been an inning-ending double-play grounder.

A's 10, White Sox 2 • Matt Olson hit his first two major league home runs, Jaycob Brugman and Franklin Barreto also launched their first career shots and visiting Oakland roughed up Chicago.

Garcia allowed six runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 innings. Shaw walked to load the bases. Matt Adams' run-scoring single tied the game.

"He did a great job", Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. The Braves finished with nine hits in the inning.

Catcher Tyler Flowers and first baseman Matt Adams were the only starters to have their trousers cover their socks, as normal. The Brewers (40-37) are going through a bit of a funk offensively and did not score more than four runs in any of their last seven games.

Counsell said Vogt's left-handed bat will add balance to the lineup.

Broxton was 3-for-4 with a double, a homer and three RBIs. "That's all we needed today".

The Brewers scored twice in the eighth on a sharp two-run double by Orlando Arcia.

Eric Thames doubled leading off the ninth, and Domingo Santana hit a two-hopper to the second-base side of Swanson, who spun and threw out Thames at third.

NOTES: Milwaukee OF Nick Franklin was ejected in the first inning. With Zach Davies set to face Julio Teheran in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 9.5 runs. Teheran would then ground out to end the inning. "It was an outing where you felt he was in control the whole outing". The franchise record is 159 set in 1976.

Rain delayed the start of the game for the second straight night.
