Milwaukee Brewers' Eric Thames scores past Cincinnati Reds catcher Stuart Turner during the fourth inning of a baseball game Monday, April 24, 2017, in Milwaukee.
Perez's three-run homer capped that inning. Garza got off to a late start this season because of a groin issue. He also hit 37 home runs and brought in 121 runs.
Davis was lifted after Arcia's two-run homer and Jonathan Villar's base hit in the third. "He wasn't on the slider, and then 3-2, he was on the slider". Note of some interest: The Reds set an all-time record for home runs allowed last season.
The Rockies' relievers came through once again after starter Tyler Anderson wore down. Schebler doubled in a run in the ninth. Teams that so far have had very little information to go on when it comes to how to pitch to him will presumably have a much fuller idea the next time.

Cubs 1, Pirates 0: Kyle Hendricks rediscovered his 2016 form, limiting Pittsburgh to four hits over six innings to outduel Gerrit Cole. "It's just a matter of carrying that over into the game". His final line wasn't pretty: 11 hits, eight runs (seven earned) and a walk to go along with a pair of strikeouts.

Wi.Peralta pitched to 3 batters in the 6th. In the seventh, Archer hit Seth Smith with a pitch, and Jones followed with a drive deep into the left-field seats. "It is really the on-base stuff". He has played six games against them and homered in all six games. He fouled three different pitches off his left foot during his first-inning at-bat and continued to play until the injury stiffened enough to prevent him from running.
