Brewers blow past Braves with convincing win

July 9 2018 5:38 AM

Milwaukee Brewers slugger Jesus Aguilar delivered once more to lead his team to victory in MLB on Sunday.

Some might be surprised to learn Aguilar has hit the most home runs in MLB since mid-May, but Milwaukee fans likely are not.

Aguilar was potent again in a 10-3 win over the Atlanta Braves, mashing two home runs with three runs scored and four RBIs. He now has 22 home runs this season and 18 since May 18.

Christian Yelich and Jonathan Villar also recorded two hits apiece, while Yelich stole his 11th base of the season. Despite battling injuries, he is on pace for his first 20-20 season.

Junior Guerra started for Milwaukee, allowing just one run with four strikeouts in six innings. He improved to 6-5 with the win. 

The Brewers remained on top of the National League (NL) Central standings with their sixth win in seven games. The Braves remained level with the Phillies atop the NL East.

 

EXCELLENT EOVALDI

Rays pitcher Nathan Eovaldi brought a perfect game into the seventh inning, ultimately finishing with seven scoreless innings and one hit allowed in a 9-0 win over the Mets. Eovaldi struck out nine batters and improved to 3-3 with the win.

Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto went five for six with two runs scored and three RBIs in a 10-2 win over the Nationals. Both teams have scored in abundance this series, and Realmuto became the first Marlins hitter to record a five-hit game this season.

CANDELARIO STRUGGLES CONTINUE

Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario is stuck in a deep slump, and he went 0 for four Sunday with two strikeouts, lowering his average to .228. He was batting .275 at the end of May.

 

ASTROS WITH PERFECT SQUEEZE

The Astros produced a perfectly executed suicide squeeze. Houston's 2-1 win over the White Sox gave them six straight victories.
