Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy slams Brewers to victory


Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy had one of his best nights at the plate tonight against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Lucroy had his first two homer game of his career in the 7-5 win.

The Diamondbacks started off the game in the driver’s seat after loading the bases in the bottom of the first with no one out.  They got three runs home early off of Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse. Lohse settled down and ended up giving up only three earned runs over six innings.

Third baseman Aramis Ramirez got the Brewers on the board when he led off the second inning with a solo home run to to left to make it 3-1 Arizona.

After a walk and an error in the fifth, Martin Prado extended the Diamondback lead with a RBI single to make it 4-1. Lucroy led off the sixth inning with a solo home run to left center to cut the defecit to 4-2.

The wheels fell off for the D-Backs in the seventh. Brewer shortstop Jean Segura led off the inning with his second triple of the game and was driven in by a sac fly to make it 4-3.

After a single and a double, Ryan Braun was intentionally hit by a pitch to load the bases. The Diamondbacks brought in Brad Ziegler to replaced the ejected Evan Marshall. Then Lucroy hit his second homer of the game, and second career grand slam to put the Brewers in front for good.

Lucroy is now hitting a robust .340 on the season with eight homers and 37 RBI.
