After Burnes' ejection, Brewers beat Reds 5-4 in 11 innings
CINCINNATI (AP) — Victor Caratini drove in the go-ahead run with an infield grounder in a two-run 11th inning, and Milwaukee beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 Friday following the ejection of Brewers starter Corbin Burnes.
With the score was 3-3, Burnes made a sliding, over-the-shoulder catch of Stuart Fairchild's blooper to end the sixth and celebrated by spiking the ball.
Burnes and plate umpire D.J. Reyburn exchanged words, and Reyburn ejected the pitcher after Burnes had returned to the dugout.
Burnes, the 2021 National League Cy Young Award winner, allowed three runs and two hits with seven strikeouts while tying his season high with four walks.
He was 0-2 over his prior three starts.
