Ian Anderson lost a game without points or hits in 7e round, but he will be able to comfort himself since he signed his 3rde season winner thanks to the Braves’ 5-1 win over the Brewers.
Anderson had still not given a hit when he arrived at the mound in 7e round before crossing paths with Daniel Vogelbach, who hit a single. Pablo Reyes then hit a double moment later that kicked Anderson out of the game. Vogelbach crossed the plate a few strokes later, which, however, was Brewers’ only point in the game.
Atlanta started the game strong and added four points to the table in the first two rounds of the game.
Freddie Freeman and William Contreras narrowly home run in the Braves victory.
At the Brewers, Brett Anderson had a more difficult night as he admitted four earned runs on eight hits in three innings and two-thirds of the work.
After beating Milwaukee on Friday, the Braves can complete the three-game series on Sunday.
The Brewers have now lost 10 of their last 13 games and are now playing for .500.
After being humiliated 17-2 the day before, the Diamondbacks Nationals reciprocated on Saturday with an offensive party in an 11-4 victory.
The D-backs were quick to hear their sticks when Eduardo Escobar and Daulton Varsho each hit singles, giving Arizona a 3-1 lead.
Escobar was the real spark plug offensively when he added two circuits later. He finished the game with three hits, three goals and seven RBIs.
Joe Ross lost to the Nationals after a tough outing. He admitted eight earned races to eight hits in four rounds of work.
So far, in two games in the series, 34 points have not been scored.
