PHOENIX (AP) — Milwaukee’s final day in the desert was not going well. The Brewers trailed by four runs after three innings, starter Brandon Woodruff went down with an injury and there was little reason to expect another comeback.
One long-time-coming swing by Tyler Saladino changed the momentum, sending Milwaukee home with a second straight series win.
Saladino had his first career grand slam and the Brewers beat up on Arizona’s bullpen for the second straight game to rally for a 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
“To come through right there in the way that it happened was huge, got us fired up,” Saladino said.
