Box Score

Sometimes strange things happen in baseball. The Brewers sweeping the defending champion Red Sox in Fenway Park would qualify as strange. Winning two games at Fenway would have been a good series, but the Brewers entered today looking for a sweep.

The scoring started in the second inning for the Brewers. Jonathan Lucroy led off the inning with a double, then Khris Davis reached on a bunt single. Mark Reynolds followed and got the Brewers on the board with an RBI single that scored Lucroy, and right fielder Daniel Nava misplayed it, allowing Khris Davis to score as well and Mark Reynolds to get to second base. However, the offense would be shut down after that with Jon Lester recording sixteen outs in a row.

The Brewers would score another run in the seventh inning after breaking Lester's streak of outs. Khris Davis got on base with a double, followed by a walk to Mark Reynolds. Lyle Overbay struck out, but Jeff Bianchi got an RBI single with two outs to increase the Brewers lead to 3-0. Mark Reynolds got over to third (technically a steal) on a pickoff attempt to first base, but Gomez ended the inning when his attempt to bunt for a hit failed.

The Brewers added another run in the eighth inning. Braun got on base with a one-out single, then stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error by catcher David Ross. Aramis Ramirez then followed with an RBI single to make it a 4-0 lead. Lucroy walked to put runners at first and second, but weren't able to take advantage of it.
