Rookies lift Crew to walk-off sweep

The Milwaukee Brewers secured a 7-6 win over the New York Mets, completing a three-game sweep at American Family Field.

The Brewers' rookies played a key role in the victory, with Joey Wiemer hitting his first career Major League home run and making a diving catch in center field,

while Garrett Mitchell hit his third home run in two days, including a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Brewers ace Corbin Burnes struggled in the game, giving up two home runs to Mets slugger Pete Alonso and posting a 9.64 ERA through two starts.

Despite Burnes' struggles, the Brewers' bullpen performed well, combining for 4 2/3 innings of hitless, scoreless relief, lowering their bullpen ERA to 1.33 for the season.

Luke Voit also contributed with a stolen base ahead of Jesse Winker's two-out, two-run double that tied the game at 6 in the fifth inning.

Mitchell, who graduated from MLB Pipeline's Top 30 prospects list on the same day, expressed his excitement about being in clutch moments and delivering in the ninth inning.

The Brewers have now won five games in a row and have been getting contributions from their rookies and bullpen, despite Burnes' early-season struggles.
