Bryce Turang gives the go-ahead and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Seattle Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) — Eric Lauer allowed only four hits in 7 2/3 innings, Bryce Turang gave the go-ahead and scored in the seventh inning with five runs as the Milwaukee Brewers completed a three-game sweep with a 5-3 win Wednesday over the Seattle Mariners.

Julio Rodriguez hit a two-run homer off Lower (3-1) in the third inning, but it was all the offense Seattle could muster against the lefty Brewers, who didn’t give up another hit before the eighth.

“We got a really good performance from Eric Lauer,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “There are days when you get to the park where you really need a start, and the length is really important. (Lor) threw a gem, I thought. He made a lot of shots today. To have that depth in the game was essential, that’s for sure.”

Mariners star Marco Gonzalez also had a solid outing, with nine strikeouts and four strikeouts allowing more than six innings in his first start since April 8.

González retired after allowing consecutive hits to William Contreras and Jesse Winker to open the seventh inning. Right-handed Matt Brush (1-2) came in in relief and allowed two kickoffs on repeat singles by Brian Anderson and Luke Foyt to give Milwaukee a break.

Turang gave Milwaukee a two-set lead in the singles and hit a Rudy Tellez home run to put the Brewers ahead, 5–2.

“He (Gonzalez) played well, but it wasn’t the end of the game,” Turang said. “We went out there and fought. You can’t take bats for bats, and I think we did a great job getting around a little bit in trouble. We came back and we fought and we won.”

Jared Kilish led Seattle in the ninth on a base loaded, but Matt Busch got the last two outs for his first save of the season.

The win was credited to Lauer and Brush scored for the loss.

“A really disappointing series,” said Mariners manager Scott Service. “I thought going into this series we started to turn around and play better baseball. But getting a consistent offense, putting pressure on the starting pitcher, that was the key to today’s game.”

The win marked the Brewers’ first sweep of Seattle since September 1989, when the Mariners played in the Kingdome.

“Obviously things are fun when you win, but I think we have a very tight-knit group at this club and I think we’ll enjoy it no matter what,” said Lauer. “I think we are good enough to win a lot, so I hope we can continue to do so.”
