Willie Adams Hit The Winning Hit For The Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Rowdy Tellez hit a homer in the ninth and Willie Adams hit a game-ending single in the 10th to help the Milwaukee Brewers win 4-3 Wednesday night against the Tampa Bay Rays.

After striking out in all three at-bats, Adames gave Christian Yelich an at-bat with an intentional walk in the 10th inning. His ground ball off Ryan Thompson (3-3) escaped shortstop Taylor Walls’ swoop and drove automatic runner Tyrone Taylor from second base.

Milwaukee completed a two-game sweep of Tampa Bay and later moved in-game to NL Central leaders St. Louis, who were playing in Colorado.
