Milwaukee blew the game open late to earn a 7-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night at American Family Field.
The Brewers managed just one run off of White Sox ace Lucas Giolito and led 1-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning. That’s when their bats came alive, as they poured across six runs against Chicago relievers Aaron Bummer and Ryan Burr. It included a Tyrone Taylor grand slam, the first of his career.
Rowdy Tellez had two hits and a pair of RBI, while Avisail Garcia got credited for an RBI with a ground out.
Milwaukee handed the ball to Freddy Peralta for the first time since the All-Star Game. He was on a pitch count but was lights out during his work. The righty went four innings, giving up one hit and striking out five.
The win allowed the Brewers to snap a five-game home losing streak and maintain their 6.5 game lead on Cincinnati in the NL Central.
