Scooter Gennett's first career grand slam home run carried the Milwaukee Brewers past the Washington Nationals 9-2 at Miller Park Wednesday afternoon. The second inning home run put Milwaukee up 4-1. Khris Davis added a solo blast and drove in three as the Brewers roughed up Washington ace Stephen Strassburg who gave up seven runs in four and two thirds innings. Marco Estrada picked up his seventh win allowing only two runs on just two hits in six and a third innings. After getting shut out in the series opener and falling 4-2 in 16 innings Tuesday night, manager Ron Roenicke gave Ryan Braun, Johnathan Lucroy and Aramis Ramirez the day off but Gennett still delivered some power. Milwaukee (48-32) maintains a four and a half game lead on St. Louis in the NL Central and they welcome the Colorado Rockies to Miller Park for a four game series. The Brewers just swept the Rockies in Denver last week. Wily Peralta faces Christian Friedrich in the opener. Pre-Game coverage begins at 6:35 PM on WTAQ.
