Lauer takes no-no into 6th; Brewers hit 5 HRs in 11-1 rout
By STEVE HERRICK Associated Press
CLEVELAND (AP) — Eric Lauer no-hit Cleveland into the sixth inning a day after Milwaukee threw a history-making no-no, his teammates belted five homers and the Brewers beat the Indians 11-1.
Just hours after Corbin Burnes and Josh Hader combined on the record ninth no-hitter in the majors this season — and Cleveland's record third time being no-hit this year — Lauer threatened to make it two in a row.
Lauer, a native of Northeast Ohio, didn't give up a hit until Ryan Lavarnway singled to center with one out in the sixth.
Nonetheless, the Brewers powered ahead and finished the weekend with a sweep of the Indians.
Milwaukee's Kolten Wong had a strong day at the plate with two home runs while Avisail Garcia reached a career-high in RBI's following a 3-RBI performance in Sunday's win.
The victory moves Milwaukee to 89-55 on the season.
