The Milwaukee Brewers traveled to Houston to take on the Astros on Wednesday night in a game that could well be a World Series preview, and it did not disappoint. The Brew Crew found themselves in a spot of bother against starting pitcher Justin Verlander, who relentlessly struck out 15 batters.
However, they stuck around, and it eventually led to them getting their break deep into extra innings. With Verlander long gone (finally) the Brewers made their move in the top of the 14th when Mike Moustakas, so often their hero, hit a two-run home run to help them grab three runs in the frame and ultimately win 6-3. Overall, they were sat down 24 times, yet they never gave in and clawed their way to a great win in the process. The win keeps them half a game ahead of the Cubs in the NL Central, while Houston is a full nine ahead of Texas in the AL West, such is their dominance.
