The Brewers jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning when catcher Manny Pina went yard on a gorgeous blast to right-center field. Dang, it feels so good to claim the first 2018 home run at Miller Park. Even though the lead wouldn’t last long with the Cardinals scoring two runs in the top of the third, it gave the home fans something to cheer about right away.
After the Cardinals took the lead in the top of the third, the Brewers quickly answered with another solo shot. This time, it was Lorenzo Cain hitting his first home run for Milwaukee since Sep 26, 2010- his rookie year.
Orlando Arcia wasn’t about to let hitting be the only highlight of the game so he decided to flash his leather. This spinning throw is one of the sweetest plays in all of baseball and I could watch it on a never-ending loop.
Unfortunately, the Cardinals own pitcher got in on the home run action when he hit this two-run shot to claim the lead in the top of the fifth.
Milwaukee tried to make a second effort at a comeback in the bottom of the sixth when first basemen Eric Thames went yard on this two-run home run. Thames crushed the ball all day and was finally able to break through in the hit column with this moon shot.
