The Milwaukee Brewers routed the Detroit Tigers 19-0 yesterday. The Crew rapped out 21 hits, including two home runs by Jedd Gyorko, and one each by Jacob Nottingham, Ryan Braun and Tyrone Taylor. Tigers starter Matthew Boyd gave up seven runs on eight hits over three innings. Outfielder Travis Demeritte pitched the ninth, giving up four runs. Milwaukee starter Corbin Burnes struck out 11 over seven innings, while giving up one of the Tigers’ two hits. It was the most lopsided shutout in Detroit history.
It was not, however, the most lopsided score in baseball yesterday. The Atlanta Braves defeated the Miami Marlins 29-9. Adam Duvall hit a two-run homer, a three-run homer, and a grand slam.
