Watch Nationals Mash Four Consecutive Homers Off Brewers' Michael Blazek

Share

Milwaukee's slumbering offense woke up with a bang, as the Brewers cracked three home runs off Edwin Jackson on the way to an 8-0 thumping of the Washington Nationals on Tuesday.

OUR PREDICTION: The total has gone under in nine of the Brewers' last 10 games on the road and has cashed in nine of Milwaukee's last 10 games overall.

Brewers pitcher Michael Blazek will never forget his first career major-league start, but he probably wishes he could.

Brian Goodwin sparked the frenzy with a two-run homer after Max Scherzer led the inning off with a walk.

Just three pitches earlier, Shaw missed a home run by inches when his deep fly ball to right barely went around the foul pole, so he felt a bit of karmic justice. After starter Jimmy Nelson struck out 10 and allowed one run in seven innings, Jacob Barnes entered with a 2-1 lead and allowed two runs and two hits while recording only one out. By the time he exited Thursday after allowing six home runs, he almost doubled his mark.

Then Wilmer Difo sent one out of the park. After an Arcia single, Davies' sacrifice attempt was misplayed by Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who made an errant throw to first.

Bryce Harper extended his career-high hitting streak to 17 games for Washington but his club managed five hits overall in getting shut out for the third time in 12 games after it scored at least one run in the first 86 contests this season. Catcher Manny Pina followed with his seventh homer to make it 7-0. Zimmerman had his second blast of the game and tied a D.C. record for most home runs with 237. Addison Russell hit a solo homer in the ninth, and Kyle Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and Jon Jay each drove in a run.

Now a week later, Scherzer gets to enjoy the opposite feeling.
