Brewers one win away from NLCS after topping Rockies 4-0 in Game 2 of NLDS

By  | 

MILWAUKEE (WMTV) -- It was a pitcher's duel until Hernan Pérez hit a ground rule double to deep left center, scoring Mike Moustakas in the fourth inning against the Colorado Rockies during Game 2 of the NLDS.

Jhoulys Chacin started on the hill for the Brewers, scattering three hits and three walks over five innings. The right-hander has allowed just two runs over 15 2/3 innings pitched.

The Brewers offense continued to leave runners on base, with six base runners stranded through seven innings. In the eighth inning, Moustakas earned his second RBI of the postseason, singling to right with the bases loaded to score Christian Yelich to put Milwaukee up 2-0.

Eric Kratz gave Milwaukee a pair of insurance runs with a two-strike single scoring Ryan Braun and Orlando Arcia to put the Brewers ahead 4-0 to conclude the inning.

A plethora of relief arms shut down the Rockies the rest of the way. Corey Knebel, Joakim Soria, Josh Hader and Jeremy Jeffress helped secure the Brewer victory.

The Brewers will play the Rockies again in Game 3 on Sunday, Oct. 7 at 3:37 p.m. CT in Colorado.
