Brewers edge Tigers 3-2 in 10 innings for 5th straight win


MILWAUKEE — Luis Urías hit a drive that bounced over the wall and brought home Omar Narváez with the winning run in the 10th inning as the Milwaukee Brewers edged the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Monday.

The Brewers won their fifth straight and snapped the Tigers’ three-game winning streak. The Tigers were starting a six-game road trip after posting their first home sweep of the New York Yankees since 2000.

Willy Adames hit a two-run homer for the Brewers. Akil Baddoo had a game-tying solo shot for the Tigers in the seventh.

Both teams opened the 10th inning by bunting over their automatic runners to third, but only the Brewers capitalized.

After falling behind 1-2 in the count with one out, Urías fouled off two pitches before his drive off José Cisnero (0-2) hit the warning track in right-center and bounced over the wall. Urías was credited with a single.

The Tigers started the top of the 10th by having Willi Castro bunt Jake Rogers over to third, but Robbie Grossman and Harold Castro struck out looking to end the sixth consecutive scoreless appearance for Brad Boxberger (2-1).

Milwaukee trailed 1-0 until Adames hit a 3-2 pitch from Daniel Norris over the right-field wall with one out in the sixth. Detroit had taken the early lead on Jonathan Schoop’s two-out single in the sixth.

Adames is batting .324 (11 of 34) with two homers and nine RBIs in 10 games since the Brewers acquired him in a May 21 trade that sent relievers J.P. Feyereisen and Drew Rasmussen to the Tampa Bay Rays. Adames hit .197 with five home runs and 15 RBIs in 41 games with the Rays.

The Tigers wasted no time responding. Baddoo led off the seventh by homering off reliever Trevor Richards, who also came over from Tampa Bay in the Adames trade. Richards has given up four runs in 4 2/3 innings since the Brewers acquired him.

Brewers starter Corbin Burnes struck out seven and allowed six hits, two walks and one run in six innings.


Tigers: C Grayson Greiner was called back from his rehabilitation assignment after experiencing soreness. Greiner has been on the injured list since May 12 with a left hamstring strain. “It’s not a significant step back, but it is a step back that will delay his process,” Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said.

Brewers: CF Lorenzo Cain left the game with right hamstring discomfort after making a catch in the seventh. The series of changes the Brewers made as a result included 1B Keston Hiura moving to left and making his first career outfield appearance. … Utilityman Tim Lopes and RHP Bobby Wahl were reinstated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Nashville. Both were dealing with right oblique injuries.


Detroit optioned RHP Bryan Garcia to Triple-A Toledo and recalled RHP Rony García, who struck out two and walked one in three innings of hitless relief Monday.

Bryan Garcia has a 1-1 record with a 5.30 ERA and two saves this year after going 2-1 with a 1.66 ERA and four saves last season. He has walked 14 batters in 18 2/3 innings.

“We’ve got to get him right,” Hinch said. “He hasn’t quite looked in sync. He hasn’t looked in command of his pitches. He was throwing so many non-competitive pitches and fighting his delivery and not being able to correct it.”


The Tigers and Brewers complete their two-game series Tuesday night. The matchup of left-handers features Matthew Boyd (2-6, 3.43 ERA) for Detroit and Eric Lauer (1-1, 2.45) for Milwaukee.
