ZOOM BALL! Eric Lauer Shoves and the Brewers win the series in Philly, despite poor offense
Listen now
Description
The Brewers survived a three-game set in Philly by the skin of their teeth with a 1-0 victory on Sunday Night Baseball thanks to the best start of the year by Eric Lauer. It may have been the start of the year in the National League to this point. Lauer tossed six shutout innings with a new career-high 13 strikeouts - tying Teddy Higuera's team record for strikeouts by a lefty in a game. Despite his dominant outing, he left with a no decision. When he exited the contest, the game was still scoreless as the Brewers could not figure out Aaron Nola for the Phillies. They did figure out old friend Corey Knebel in the 9th to push across the game's only run thanks to some aggressive baserunning from Jace Peterson and a situational sac fly from Christian Yelich. There are some mind-blowing numbers from the offense's cold start, so Dom (@Dom_Cotroneo) breaks it all down and ponders if there is a strategy to help the Brewers moving forward with the bats...
