Consistency of starting rotation carrying Brewers early
By STEVE MEGARGEE AP Sports Writer
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Corbin Burnes always sensed the Milwaukee Brewers were on the verge of producing an exceptional starting rotation. It just took some time to put it all together.
Burnes now is the hottest pitcher in a rotation that has produced a remarkable run of consistency in the first two weeks of the season.
Brewers starters have worked at least five innings while allowing no more than one run in eight consecutive games. That's the longest such streak in franchise history.
During that stretch, Brewers starters have allowed a total of three earned runs over 46 innings. Opposing batters have hit just .136 against them.
