Eric Thames sets Brewers mark with 11th home run in April

26 April 2017

Eric Thames hit two home runs and Hernan Perez homered and drove in four runs as the Brewers outslugged the Reds 11-7 in Milwaukee.

Thames would come back to homer in the 2nd inning, a two-run shot that just went over the left field fence. He also tied a franchise record with his 10th homer in April. "There are some teams that somehow the ball finds your barrel, and there are some teams where you get a good pitch and you swing and it is a foul ball or a strikeout". "As the saying goes, you may get one good pitch to hit in your at-bat, you don't want to miss it". Thames has more home runs in six games against the Reds (eight) than any other hitter in Major League Baseball has home runs overall. South Korea isn't some lawless backwater where anything goes: The Korean Baseball Organization is a legitimate league with actual rules even though - shocked face - it isn't within the United States' border like Major League Baseball.

Perez's three-run homer capped that inning. Otherwise, Garza allowed four hit, three walks and struck out four with 94 pitches. He's hit some good pitches, too, but he doesn't miss a mistake.

The biggest scare came in the top of the third, when a Orlando Arcia failed to field an easy grounder committing his first error in 43 games. He also set a club record for runs scored in April with 24. Cincinnati RHP Rookie Davis (bruised right forearm) will be activated from the disabled list to start Wednesday against the Brewers.

Ryan Braun left the game in the sixth inning after fouling a number of pitches off his foot.
