Aguilar gives Brewers lead, Moustakas, Kratz add to it

Jesus Aguilar delivered a hit the Brewers have been waiting for all series long, and it spurred a huge rally.

Aguilar lined a two-out, two-run double to the right-field corner in the bottom of the first to turn a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead. The big hit scored Lorenzo Cain, who singled, and Ryan Braun, who walked.

Mike Moustakas followed Aguilar with a double to the right-field wall on the next pitch to score Aguilar, and Erik Kratz singled on the next pitch to score Moustakas and make it 4-1.

The damage came against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu, who threw four shutout innings Saturday in Game 2 before giving up two runs in the fifth inning of the Dodgers’ 4-3 victory.

Orlando Arcia followed Kratz’s hit with a single before pitcher Wade Miley put a charge into the ball but was retired when Cody Bellinger caught his liner to deep right-center.

The four runs marked the Brewers’ biggest inning of the series. In fact, it surpassed the Brewers’ total for Games 4 and 5 combined.

The Brewers lead the Dodgers, 4-1, in the top of the second.
