CINCINNATI, July 15 (U.S.): Corbin Burns hit the sidelines in the sixth inning after nearly collapsing in the fifth due to heavy damping. Victor Karatini struck out in the seventh and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 on Friday. a night.
After the tenth strikeout, Burns sat behind the mound with his head lowered as his teammates and coaches lunged. The Associated Press (AP) reported that the temperature at the time of the game was 91 degrees with high humidity.
“He just got a light head, basically,” said Brewers manager Craig Counsell. “The coaches don’t think it was a hydration problem. Like you lift something heavy and get a little light from that. He just needed a minute to regroup. His vision got a little blurry.”
Burns (8-5) took several large gulps of water and spoke to the coaching staff. He took a few warm-ups, then Matt McClain retired a pop to end the inning.
“Everything was getting dizzy, and eyes were getting crossed,” Burns said. “I went to the back of the mound, hoping if she blinked a few times it would go away, and it didn’t. After a bottle of water, I gave her a second, and she went away. Scary at the moment, sure.”
Burns said nothing like this had ever happened to him. Conseil considered taking Burns out, but the 28-year-old right-hander quickly recovered.
“He was getting better because we gave him time,” said Conseil. “Hitting the side in the sixth was impressive.”
Burns struck out 13 in six innings pitched. He allowed only two hits and two walks to help the Brewers tie the Reds at the top of the NL Central standings.
“He’s got great stuff,” said Reds coach David Bell. “He threw more broken balls. I think that led to a lot of his success tonight. He obviously has a good fastball. He used more broken balls today and I think that helped him.”
Devin Williams shut down the 21st save. The two teams faced each other for the fourth time in a row, as the Brewers got two of three from the Milwaukee Reds before the All-Star break.
Cincinnati starter Graham Ashcraft (5-6) allowed three hits through six innings pitched.
“I was able to find that rhythm with my arms and mechanics,” Ashcraft said. “It started bombing the area a lot more. That’s something we’re starting to push to make sure we keep the rhythm going.”
Reds left fielder Joey Wimmer was sacked by Spencer Steer on an attempt to score from second on William Contreras’ single for the final out in the third.
The Brewers beat the Reds 1-0 in consecutive games, marking the first time in Milwaukee’s series history that they had recorded consecutive 1-0 shutouts. “We’re putting on a really good show,” said Conseil. “This is a lineup that scores a lot of runs. To stop two against them, credit goes to our pitchers.”
Brewers: 3B Brian Anderson was scratched from the lineup due to lower back discomfort. … Tyrone Taylor (right elbow) has been reinstated from the 10-day injured list. … 1B Rowdy Tellez (right manger) is expected to return Tuesday in Philadelphia.
Reds: RHP Hunter Greene (Right Hip Stiffness) has reached Level 3 of his Basic Stability Program, which allows him to start eliminating a pile. LHP Nick Lodolo (left calf hamstring) continues to throw. Ludolu and Greene are expected to return in August.
Reds LHP Andrew Abbott (4-1, 2.38) is set to start Saturday against RHP Freddy Peralta (5-7, 4.70).
