Sal Frelick shines in debut as Brewers edge Braves

On July 23, the Milwaukee Brewers staged a comeback victory against the Atlanta Braves, with Sal Frelick leading the charge in his major league debut. Frelick’s three hits and timely RBIs propelled the Brewers to a 4-3 win. Meanwhile, Austin Riley continued his impressive home run streak, hitting his sixth homer in the past five games for the Braves.

In the eighth inning, Frelick’s sacrifice fly gave Milwaukee the lead for good. Willy Adames started the rally with a double, and an error on Andruw Monasterio’s fielder’s choice allowed Adames to advance. Frelick’s liner to right field brought Adames home, securing the go-ahead run.

The Braves made a late push in the ninth inning, loading the bases against closer Devin Williams. Eddie Rosario’s single and pinch-runner Forrest Wall’s stolen bases put the pressure on. Michael Harris II and Ronald Acuna Jr. drew walks to load the bases, but Williams came through with a crucial strikeout of Ozzie Albies to secure his 25th save of the season.

Pitcher Joel Payamps earned the victory for the Brewers, pitching a scoreless eighth inning. Frelick also showcased his defensive skills with two impressive catches at the wall in right field, preventing extra-base hits.

The Braves initially took a 3-0 lead in the third inning, thanks to Riley’s 22nd home run of the season. Acuna and Albies reached base, setting the stage for Riley’s powerful hit to center field.

Braves starter Allan Winans, in his big league debut, held the Brewers to just two hits until the fifth inning. However, Frelick’s single and Owen Miller’s double sparked a rally, resulting in two runs for Milwaukee. Turang’s sacrifice fly and Perkins’ RBI single brought the score to 3-2, forcing Winans out of the game.

Milwaukee tied the game at 3 in the sixth inning against Michael Tonkin. Jesse Winker drew a walk, Monasterio singled, and Frelick delivered another clutch hit, driving in the tying run.

Both starting pitchers had solid performances. Houser struck out 10 batters and allowed three runs on six hits in six innings for the Brewers. Winans, on the other hand, gave up two runs on five hits in 4 1/3 innings, striking out five and walking one.

In conclusion, the Milwaukee Brewers showcased their resilience and rookie talent to secure a comeback victory against the Atlanta Braves. Frelick’s impressive debut and clutch plays were instrumental in the win.
