Davis goes deep twice as Brewers take series finale from Cards
Khris Davis' recent hot streak helped the Brewers pull off a thrilling come-from-behind victory Sunday against a rival and an old foe.
Davis took former Brewer Jonathan Broxton deep in the eighth inning, his second home run of the game and the difference maker in a 5-4 win that helped the Brewers salvage a win in the weekend series against St. Louis.
Davis also went deep in the third inning off Cardinals starter John Lackey. Elian Herrera homered for the Brewers in that same inning.
Jimmy Nelson pitched six strong innings, but got roughed up in the seventh thanks to a three run homer off the bat of Matt Carpenter that gave the Cards the lead. The 4-3 advantage stood until the Cards brought in Broxton to face Davis in the eighth. Broxton was swapped to St. Louis at the trade deadline less than two weeks ago.
The Brewers have Monday off before traveling to Wrigley Field for three games with the Cubs. The Brew Crew return home over the weekend for a series against the Phillies.
