For a second consecutive night a Milwaukee Brewers right-hander stymied the Los Angeles Dodgers at the plate. Jimmy Nelson had his no-hitter broken up with one out in the sixth inning Friday, and the Dodgers finally managed to break through with three runs in the seventh en route to a comeback win.
They had no such luck Saturday however, as rookie Taylor Jungmann allowed one run on three hits in a complete-game win. Within the games being played has been a good-natured battle of sorts between Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez and Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig.
Gomez threw a wad of gum he was chewing at Puig on Friday, who didn’t respond then, but gave Gomez a finger wag in the second inning on Saturday after the Brewers center fielder thought better of testing Puig’s arm.
While Gomez decided to stay put in that instance, Aramis Ramirez threw caution to the wind in the sixth inning with his team holding a 3-0 lead. Ramirez led the inning off with a slicing fly ball that was out of Joc Pederson’s reach. Puig backed the play up, took the carom off the wall and fired a strike to second base from the warning track in right-center field.
