This is the guy the Brewers thought they were getting when they signed free agent Jhoulys Chacin. He pitched well for the second straight time while the Milwaukee Brewers ran their winning streak to eight games-in-a-row Wednesday, beating Kansas City 6-2. The Brewers kept a firm grip on first place in the Central Division. Chacin allowed two runs in five-and-two-thirds innings, picking up his second win. Ryan Braun was three-for-five and interim first baseman Jesus Aguilar drove in two runs. Milwaukee put four runs on the board in the top of the fourth inning. The Royals cut the lead in half, but never caught up. Manager Craig Counsell says they’re not choosy about who they beat.
Travis Shaw says their offense always gives them hope.
Chase Anderson pitches for the Brewers tonight (Thursday) as they open a series in Wrigley Field against the Cubs.
