New York Yankees 1, Milwaukee Brewers 4

MILWAUKEE — On Saturday night, Willy Adames hit his 30th home run of the season, a three-run shot that backed up Brandon Woodruff, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the New York Yankees 4-1.

Aaron Judge of New York went 1 for 3 with a double and a walk, so he still has 57 home runs. Judge needed four more home runs to tie Roger Maris’ record of 61 home runs in the American League.

In the third inning of the game, catcher Victor Caratini hit Yankee’s first baseman Marwin Gonzalez in the head with a throw while he was in the batter’s box.

Caratini had just been hit by a pitch and was trying to get the ball back to Woodruff (11-4). However, the catcher’s throw hit Gonzalez on the left side of the head, which caused the batter’s helmet to pop off.

Gonzalez was looked at for a few minutes by a Yankees trainer before he was taken out of the game. As soon as Caratini’s throw hit Gonzalez, he tried to say sorry.

Gonzalez got sick on Friday and didn’t play in the Yankees’ 7-6 loss to the Brewers.

Even though they only had four hits, the Brewers won.

In the third inning, Adames hit a sinker from Jameson Taillon (13-5) over the wall in left field. This was the first run scored.

Adames’ 30 home runs are the most by a Brewers shortstop. He has one more than future Hall of Famer Robin Yount, who led the team to its only World Series appearance in 1982 when he was the MVP.

Josh Donaldson hit a home run to left field off Woodruff to start the top of the fourth for New York. This cut Milwaukee’s lead to 3-1. Friday, both Adames and Donaldson hit home runs.

But that was all the Yankees could do against Woodruff, who gave up only five hits and one walk while striking out ten batters. Giancarlo Stanton, who has been an All-Star five times, got struck out four times by Woodruff. This was Stanton’s fourth four-strikeout game this season.

Corbin Burnes’ 2-1 win over San Francisco on September 8 was the longest start by a Brewers pitcher so far this season. Woodruff’s start of eight innings was the same length.

In the fifth, Garrett Mitchell singled and scored after Christian Yelich doubled for the Brewers to make the score 4-1.

Devin Williams got the side out in order, which was his 13th save out of 14 chances.

In five innings, Taillon let four runs scored and four hits reach the base.


On Sunday, the Yankees’ Gerrit Cole (11-7, 3.30) goes up against the Brewers’ Jason Alexander (2-3, 5.29). This series will end with this game.
