CINCINNATI — Victor Caratini drove in the go-ahead run with an infield grounder in a two-run 11th inning, and Milwaukee beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 Friday night following the ejection of Brewers starter Corbin Burnes.

With the score 3-3, Burnes made a sliding, over-the-shoulder catch of Stuart Fairchild’s blooper to end the sixth and celebrated by spiking the ball. Burnes and plate umpire D.J. Reyburn exchanged words, and Reyburn ejected the pitcher after Burnes returned to the dugout.

Burnes, the 2021 National League Cy Young Award winner, allowed three runs and two hits with seven strikeouts while tying his season high with four walks. He was 0-2 over his prior three starts.

With automatic runner Brian Anderson on second in the 11th, Milwaukee loaded the bases against Fernando Cruz (1-1) when Andruw Monasterio singled and Joey Wiemer walked. Caratini grounded to second baseman Jonathan India, who threw to shortstop Matt McLain for a forceout, and Caratini beat the relay to first.

Brice Turang hit a comebacker off the glove of Cruz, who threw to second instead of home. While the Reds got another forceout, Turang easily beat the relay to first and avoided an inning-ending double play.

Elvis Pegureo (1-0) struck out one in a hitless 10th for his first major league win.


Curt Casali hit a two-out RBI double in the bottom half before Bryse Wilson retired Spencer Steer on a groundout for his third save in four chances.

Milwaukee improved to 3-0 in extra innings, while Cincinnati dropped to 2-3.

Before a crowd of 44,073, a regular-season record at Great American Ball Park, Reds rookie Brandon Williamson remained without a decision in his first four big league starts. He allowed three runs – two earned – five hits and two walks in a career-high 6 2/3 innings. Williamson tied his career high with six strikeouts.

Wiemer put Milwaukee ahead with a two-run homer in the second, driving a first-pitch cutter 432 feet into the left-field lower deck.

Jake Fraley walked in the bottom half, stole second, advanced on Tyler Stephenson’s grounder and beat second baseman Owen Miller’s throw home on Nick Senzel’s grounder, making a sprawling headfirst slide.

Jonathan India gave Cincinnati a 3-2 lead in the third with a two-out, opposite-field liner that traveled 370 feet into the right-field seats. Caratini hit a run-scoring chopper in the fourth following McLain’s throwing error.


MARLINS 4, ATHLETICS 0: Edward Cabrera struck out 10 in six innings and Miami won at home.

Cabrera (4-4) gave up four hits and walked one. He had his second double-digit strikeout game of the season after fanning 12 against the Chicago Cubs on April 29.

JT Chargois, Andrew Nardi and Tanner Scott followed Cabrera, each throwing an inning to complete the five-hitter. Jesús Sánchez homered and singled twice, and Bryan De La Cruz had two hits.

The major league-worst Athletics lost their 12th straight on the road to drop to 12-47 overall.


MARINERS: Left-hander Marco Gonzales remained in Seattle for tests on his left forearm and will not make his scheduled start Saturday in Texas.


Manager Scott Servais said before Friday’s series opener against the Rangers that Gonzalez felt some discomfort after throwing 5 2/3 innings Sunday at home against Pittsburgh. The left-hander still wasn’t feeling right when throwing his bullpen session earlier this week.

“Wanted to get it checked out,” Servais said, adding that he wouldn’t elaborate further until the team gets reports back from the doctors.

The Mariners have right-hander Bryan Woo with them in Texas to pitch in Gonzales’ spot in what will be his big league debut. They will have to make a roster move before Saturday’s game to add Woo to the roster.

Seattle has won six of the last seven games started by Gonzales (4-1, 5.22 ERA in 10 starts overall).

Gonzales allowed one run on three hits aagainst Pittsburgh, after giving up two runs over six innings against Oakland his previous start. Those followed his shortest outing of the season, when Boston scored eight runs over 1 2/3 innings.

CARDINALS: St. Louis placed outfielder Lars Nootbaar on the 10-day injured list because of a lower-back contusion.


The move was retroactive to Tuesday, a day after Nootbaar collided with the outfield wall in St. Louis during a 7-0 loss to Kansas City. Nootbaar is hitting .266 with four home runs and 21 RBI in 42 games.

The injury is the latest in a series of setbacks for the Cardinals outfield. Tyler O’Neill has been out since May 5 because of a lower back injury and Dylan Carlson is still recovering from a sprained left ankle sustained on May 14. Carlson is expected to start a rehab assignment early next week.

St. Louis recalled 21-year-old outfielder Jordan Walker from Triple-A Memphis to fill Nootbaar’s roster spot.

Walker hit .274 with two home runs in 20 games with the Cardinals earlier in the season, a stretch that included a 12-game hitting streak to begin his career.

ROYALS: Left-hander Amir Garrett was placed on the 15-day injured list because of pain in his pitching elbow.

The Royals described the injury as a valgus extension overload. Right-hander Jackson Kowar was recalled from Triple-A Omaha.

“It’s basically kind of like a bone bruise,” Royals Manager Matt Quatraro said. “There’s inflammation. There’s also a little bit of irritation.”

Garrett has a 3.00 ERA in 21 innings over 23 relief appearances.
