Dodger catcher Yasmani Grandal launched a two-run home run in the 10th inning to give Los Angeles a 6-4 walk-off victory over Milwaukee Wednesday night. It was Grandal’s second homer of the game and it ended the Dodgers’ three-game losing streak. Chase Anderson went the first six innings for Milwaukee, giving up just three hits and a pair of runs. Lorenzo Cain and Manny Pina each had three hits. Manager Craig Counsell praised his star outfielder.
The Brewers trailed 4-2 in the eighth when Mike Moustakas doubled in one run and Pina singled in the tying run. Matt Albers took the loss in relief. Consell stands by his decision to use Albers in the critical situation.
Albers says the matchups with the Dodgers are preparing them for the stretch run.
Jhoulys Chacin goes for his 11th win of the season when he faces off against Clayton Kershaw. First pitch scheduled for 8:00 PM.
