·2 min read

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Rowdy Tellez hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Los Angeles 2-1 on Friday night to stop the Angels' three-game winning streak.

Willy Adames had a first-inning home run for Milwaukee, and Gio Urshela hit a two-out RBI single in the fourth as part of a 3-for-3 night. With two outs and two on, Joey Wiemer ran 89 feet to make a leaping backhand catch on the center-field warning track 395 feet from the plate to retire Chad Wallach.

William Contreras and Mike Brosseau singled off Aaron Loup (0-2) starting the eighth. Tellez grounded a single in the hole between second and first, and into right field.

Los Angeles had put runners at the corners in the top half when Taylor Ward reached on throwing error by Brosseau at third and Shohei Ohtani singled with one out. Peter Strzelecki (2-0) retired Anthony Rendon on a flyout and Hunter Renfroe on a groundout.

Devin Williams pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in four chances. He has pitched nine scoreless innings in nine appearances.

Los Angeles made its first visit to Milwaukee since 2016.

Milwaukee’s Wade Miley, coming off wins over San Diego and Boston, allowed seven hits and no walks in six innings.
