Hiura helps Brewers to walk-off winner Monday night
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Keston Hiura hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning, capping a night of emotional comebacks and giving the Brewers a 7-5 win, their third consecutive victory.
With Willy Adames at first, Hiura swung at a Wil Crowe pitch and drove it to left field. The ball bounced off the top of the wall and over, sending Hiura and the Brewers faithful home happy.
Devin Williams got the win thanks to a scoreless ninth inning. Brewers starter Corbin Burnes gave up five runs in six innings of work, and the Brewers trailed after an O'Neil Cruz three-run homer in the fifth.
Rookie Garrett Mitchell provided the first set of fireworks in the eighth. With the Brewers trailing 5-3, Mitchell drove a ball over the wall in right-center field for his first big league home run. Mitchell was playing in just his second big league game; he made his MLB debut Sunday and drove in two runs.
The Brewers face the Pirates again Tuesday night at 7:10 p.m. The franchise anticipates welcoming its 100 millionth fan in team history Tuesday night. That attendance figure includes the franchise's first season in 1969 as the Seattle Pilots, and also includes playoff game attendance.
