Alvarez walked leading off and went to third on Jose Tabata's bunt single and third baseman Aramis Ramirez's throwing error. Jordy Mercer grounded into a double play that allowed Alvarez to score. Davis and Scooter Gennett both drew one-out walks off Justin Wilson in the eighth before Mark Reynolds was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks grounded into a force out that scored Davis and Jean Segura's single plated Gennett before Braun ripped a double off the wall to give the Brewers an 8-3 lead.
