Surging Brewers rally with 3 in ninth, stun Nats
Jean Segura singled against Jackson with one-out in the eighth inning. Trying to steal second, Segura was thrown out by Flores on the back-end of a double play as pinch-hitter Corey Hart struck out.
The dramatic conclusion followed.
‘‘This is probably the best team in baseball and has been all year so you know nothing is going to come easy and whenever you’re on the road it’s that much more challenging,’’ Braun said about beating the 91-win Nationals. ‘‘Certainly we've been finding different ways to win—a lot of guys contributing.’’
Notes: Before the game, Milwaukee acquired veteran catcher Yorvit Torrealba from Toronto for cash considerations. In 59 games with the Blue Jays and Rangers this season, Torrealba is batting .233 with four homers and 14 RBIs. He is expected to join the team on Saturday. ... Left-hander Gio Gonzalez aims for his 20th win on Saturday while the Brewers counter with righty Wily Peralta.
