Gamel's homer in the 10th inning gives the Brewers what they need
It was another extra innings game for the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, but this time they found a way to win. Ben Gamel's home run in the top of the 10th inning was just enough to give the Brewers the win, 3-2 over the Atlanta Braves on the road.
The Brewers had a strong pitching performance from starter Brandon Woodruff, who went eight strong innings, giving up five hits and striking out six.
Offensively, both teams struggled after the first inning when it was tied 1-1. The Brewers had a 2-1 lead beginning in the fifth inning, but a Braves home run in the seventh tied the game at 2-2.
The Brewers turned to Josh Hader in the ninth inning to keep the game tied and send it into extra innings.
In the 10th, Gamel smacked the first pitch he saw to center field to give the Brewers a 3-2 lead.
The Braves had one more chance in the bottom of the tenth with Hader still pitching, but Hader retired three consecutive batters to get his first win of the season.
The Brewers are now 28-21 on the season.
