New York Yankees 6, Milwaukee Brewers 7

MILWAUKEE — On Friday night, Garrett Mitchell’s RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning helped the Milwaukee Brewers beat the New York Yankees 7-6.

Judge went 2 for 4 and drove in two runs, but he didn’t hit a home run, so he still has 57 runs for the season. Roger Maris of the Yankees set the American League record for home runs with 61 in 1961.

Judge got an infield hit in the first, hit a single to center on a check swing in the second, and was purposely walked for the 17th time this season in the third. When he walked on purpose, the crowd at American Family Field, which included a lot of Yankees fans, booed loudly.

The Brewers were behind 5-0 after the first two innings, but they came back to win 6-5 in the eighth. Josh Donaldson‘s home run off Taylor Rogers (4-7) tied the game in the ninth. Then, in the bottom half of the inning, the Brewers answered with their biggest comeback win of the season.

On May 18, the Brewers beat the Atlanta Braves 7-6 in 11 innings after being down 4-0.

In the middle of the ninth inning, Yankees manager Aaron Boone was thrown out of the game.

Hunter Renfroe hit a double off of All-Star Clay Holmes (6-4) to start the ninth inning, and when Kolten Wong grounded out, he moved to third. After Andrew McCutchen walked, Jace Peterson struck out, and Victor Caratini walked to load the bases, Mitchell hit a single up the middle to end the 4-hour, 10-minute game.

Frankie Montas only lasted 3 and a third innings, and his ERA went up to 6.35. Since the Yankees got him at the trade deadline, he has made eight starts and the team is 3–5. He moved into the rotation to replace Jordan Montgomery, who was traded. In Montgomery’s starts, the St. Louis Cardinals are 7-1.

Eight batters were walked by New York pitchers, including four by the bullpen.

Willy Adames of Milwaukee went 2 for 4 and hit a three-run homer and a double that drove in a run to start the comeback.

In the second inning, he hit his 29th home run of the season, which tied the record for the most home runs ever hit by a Brewers shortstop. In 1982, when he was the MVP and led the Brewers to their only World Series, Hall of Famer Robin Yount hit 29 home runs.

Two innings later, Adames hit an RBI double that went over right fielder Oswaldo Cabrera, hit the warning track, and bounced into the stands. Rowdy Tellez then hit a sacrifice fly, which allowed Christian Yelich to score the run that tied the game.

When the Brewers took the lead in the eighth, Adames was also at bat.

With two outs and runners on second and third, Adames hit a ground ball that Kiner-Falefa couldn’t catch cleanly. This let Keston Hiura score the winning run. Kiner-Falefa was blamed for making a mistake.

In the ninth, Donaldson hit a drive off the foul pole in left field against Rogers, who was pitching instead of Brewers closer Devin Williams. In the eighth, Williams got the side out of the game in order.

After that, Cabrera hit a double, but he was left at third.


On Saturday, the Yankees’ Jameson Taillon (13-4, 3.94) goes up against the Brewers’ Brandon Woodruff (10-4, 3.39).
