Indians end Hader's hitless streak, beat Brewers 4-3

By BRIAN DULIK Associated Press

CLEVELAND (AP) — Milwaukee closer Josh Hader allowed his first hit of the season, and then gave up César Hernández's game-winning single in the ninth inning of the Cleveland Indians' 4-3 victory over the Brewers.

Oscar Mercado, who scored on Hernández's liner through a five-man infield, led off the ninth with a double, ending Hader's major league-record streak of 12 hitless appearances to start the season.

Hader did not retire a batter, leaving him tied with Hal Newhouser and Brad Clontz for the record of 35 consecutive hitless at-bats to open a year.
