Wolf, Brewers Blank Dodgers 3-0
(CBS) – Randy Wolf pitched eight scoreless innings against his former team and the Milwaukee Brewers hit three homers and turned a triple play to defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Monday night.
The Brewers turned the triple play in the second inning — and it wasn’t your standard variety — going 4-6-3-2 as James Loney grounded it up the middle for what appeared to be a standard 4-6-3 double play, but Matt Kemp took off from third base and was thrown out by Prince Fielder.
It was the first 4-6-3-2 triple play since 1972.
Milwaukee took a one-nothing lead on Ryan Braun’s solo shot off Ted Lilly and added two more runs on homers by Corey Hart and Jonathan Lucroy.
Wolf (10-8), pitched eight scoreless innings, allowing six hits and John Axford finished the game with his 35th save of the season.
