Junior Guerra activated, taking mound for Brewers against Arizona

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Chase Anderson prepares to throw to the Arizona Diamondbacks during the sixth inning of a baseball game Saturday, May 27, 2017, in Milwaukee.

It's the fourth straight loss for the Brewers, who dropped out of first place in the National League Central Division after an eight-day run. "Just got unlucky there, and he got exactly what he was looking for".

Pérez, up next, sent the first pitch he saw into right to score Villar and put the Brewers ahead, 2-1. It only happened once all past year (Ray, again, and Braden Shipley vs. the Mets, on August 10-11). The Brewers are trending in the other direction with a season-high five-game slide and the latest setback has to sting after they lost a 2-1 lead with two outs in the ninth inning on a dramatic home run by Arizona catcher Chris Iannetta. Nick spends a good part of the game in shinguards.

Counsell was then asked which position player would most likely take the mound in a blowout or emergency situation.

The out call at the plate was upheld after a review of almost 2 minutes.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell challenged the call but after almost two minutes of review, it was upheld by the replay center in NY.

"I feel really good", Guerra said earlier in the week. He is 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA with seven strikeouts in his two previous appearances. In that contest, Godley went seven innings, allowed one run and gained a7-1 victory.

In the Milwaukee sixth, the Brewers had Eric Thames on third and Travis Shaw on first. The game settled down into a pitching duel, with Lamb's bomb the only run either man allowed. The right-hander hasn't allowed an earned run in his last 12 2/3 innings against Milwaukee. Iannetta, though, recovered the ball and tossed it to Godley, who made the tag as Thames was sliding, apparently ending the inning. It was his fifth homer, but undeniably his most crucial.

After going down in order in the bottom of the ninth against T.J. McFarland, the Brewers turned to Wily Peralta to pitch the 10th. Lamb then drove in an insurance run with an RBI double, to make it 4-2.

Milwaukee finally got on the board in the seventh on a solo home run by Jett Bandy and took the lead in the eighth on an RBI single from Hernan Perez.

It was the Diamondbacks' 10th win in 11 games in Milwaukee.

Regrettably, Fangraphs appears to have been broken by the Brewers' game-tying home-run, so we don't have any final Win Probability for the game as yet. "I was just keeping them off balance today". Confirmation to follow tomorrow, I guess!
