From the outset, the Brewers demonstrated strategic hitting and solid pitching. They opened the scoring early in the first inning with one run off one hit, setting an assertive tone for the game. Although their batting average was .200 throughout, they managed to accumulate six hits and two runs by capitalizing on crucial moments.
