The Milwaukee Brewers came from behind to claim a 5-4, 11-inning victory over the Colorado Rockies last night. Trailing 4-0, Keston Hiura hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh. Kolton Wong added a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. Willie Adames forced extra innings with a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. Hiura’s sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 11th drove in Manny Piña with the winning run. Starter Corbin Burnes gave up a run over six innings. Devin Williams got the win in relief.

Milwaukee starter Brett Anderson’s stay on the injured list is expected to be short. Team officials say he should be able to return after the All-Star break, after suffering a right knee contusion. Infielder Daniel Vogelbach, however, faces a longer recovery from the hamstring strain he suffered earlier this week. He’ll be out until at least mid-August.
The Brewers added some minor-league depth yesterday, obtaining outfielder Troy Stokes Jr. and pitcher Jandel Gustave from the Pirates. Stokes is a 25-year-old prospect who has struggled at the plate this season. Gustave is a 28-year-old reliever who has spent some major league time with the Astros and Giants. In exchange, Pittsburgh gets 17-year-old catching prospect Samuel Escudero.
