Brewers win their second consecutive series, but Woodruff leaves game with abdominal discomfort

PHOENIX (AP) — Tyler Saladino had his first career grand slam, Mike Moustakas hit a go-ahead run-scoring single in the eighth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-4 on Sunday.

Saladino broke out of a season-long slump with his first homer of the year, a grand slam off Alex Young in the fourth inning after Milwaukee fell behind 4-0. Moustakas hit a go-ahead three-run homer in Saturday night’s 8-3 win and put the Brewers ahead late again, chopping a single through the middle after Keston Hiura led off the eighth inning with a triple against Yoan Lopez (1-4).Pinch hitter Yasmani Grandal followed with a run-scoring double and Ben Gamel added an RBI single to put Milwaukee up 7-4.

Freddy Peralta (4-3) pitched a scoreless seventh inning and Josh Hader worked around a single in the ninth for his 22nd save. The Brewers have won five of six. Milwaukee All-Star right-hander Brandon Woodruff allowed four runs before leaving after two pitches in the fourth with an abdominal injury.

Woodruff left the game after grimacing on his second pitch to Tim Locastro to open the fourth inning. The team said he suffered “abdominal discomfort.” Woodruff was replaced by Junior Guerra, who struck out the side after finishing off Locastro.
