The Brewers were able to jump ahead early again Wednesday day, scoring 4 times before the Dodgers even came up to bat. When they did, though, 4 of the first 6 batters reached against Doug Davis, but the Dodgers were only able to score twice.
Davis settled down from there, ultimately pitching into the 6th inning in a solid-but-unspectacular start.
The Brewers offense was able to score 11 runs without the use of a single home run, making it just the second time the Brewers have won without hitting a homer this year. It’s a stat that probably doesn’t mean much, but you could also say it summarizes the Brewers’ offense in a nutshell — they score a ton of runs when they win, and usually that is a result of a homer or two.
It was the first time this year that the Dodgers lost back-to-back home games, and it was the first time since 2008 that they allowed 10 or more runs in back-to-back games. The Brewers have a chance at their first-ever sweep of the Dodgers on Thursday.
