But in the top of the eighth, the Brewers rallied. Jeff Bianchi tied the game with an infield single that scored Khris Davis.

Then, Norichika Aoki's single brought home Bianchi and Schafer and the Brewers led, 4-1.
In the ninth, Davis hit his third homer of the season and Martin Maldonado drove in another run with a single.
