The Milwaukee Brewers secured a thrilling 6-5 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday, thanks to a game-ending single from Andruw Monasterio in the 10th inning. Monasterio, who entered the game as a replacement for the injured Joey Ortiz, delivered his first career walk-off hit to seal the win for the Brewers.

The game was filled with excitement, as Jake Bauers hit a grand slam and Jackson Chourio added an inside-the-park homer to the Brewers’ tally. The Rangers put up a tough fight, but eventually fell short in extra innings.

Brewers manager Pat Murphy praised Monasterio’s willingness to adapt and his positive attitude, saying, “He’s willing to do anything at any time, play any position. He’s working every day, he’s always got a smile, he has a great attitude every day. So, the team pulls for him.”

The win marked the Brewers’ 15th game over .500 this season, and they swept the three-game series from the World Series champion Rangers. Dallas Keuchel, making his Brewers debut, allowed five runs and eight hits over four innings, but the team rallied behind him to secure the victory.

Chourio’s inside-the-park homer was a highlight of the game, as he beat the throw to the plate and scored the Brewers’ fifth run. He also made a diving catch in right field to rob Adolis Garcia of a hit in the seventh inning.

The Brewers’ win was a testament to their resilience and determination, as they recovered from a 4-1 lead and a tough outing from Keuchel to secure the victory.
