Danny Salazar pitched six strong innings but the Tribe’s offense struggled again and the Brewers reached the Indians bullpen for five runs in an 8-1 win on Tuesday.
Salazar struck out eight in those six innings but was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the top of the seventh. Yan Gomes and Giovanny Urshela doubled in that inning to cut the Brewers’ lead to 3-1, but Milwaukee scored four in the bottom of the seventh to break it open.
W: Matt Garza (5-10)
