Reds beat Brewers 6-1 as teams resume play following protest
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jesse Winker homered twice, prized prospect Jose Garcia singled in his first big league at-bat and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 in a doubleheader opener one day after both teams opted not to play to protest racial injustice.
The reactions by the teams followed the weekend shooting by police of Jacob Blake, a Black man, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, about 40 miles south of Milwaukee.
Other major league teams have since followed, with seven games postponed Thursday.
