Burnes overcomes heat scare to 13 fan in win – UnlistedNews

CINCINNATI (AP) — Corbin Burnes struck out the team in the sixth inning after nearly collapsing in the fifth in oppressive humidity, Victor Caratini drove in a run with a single in the seventh and the Milwaukee Brewers won 1-0 Friday night. to the Cincinnati Reds.

After his 10th strikeout, Burnes crouched behind the mound with his head down as his teammates and coaches came running up. The temperature during the game was 91 degrees with the high humidity.

“He just got dizzy, essentially,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “The coaches don’t think it was a hydration issue. Like you lift something heavy and you get a little dizzy. He just needed a minute to regroup. His vision got a little blurry.”

Burnes (8-5) took several gulps of water and spoke with the coaching staff. He threw a couple of warm-up pitches and then retired Matt McLain with an infield punch to end the inning.

“Everything got a little dizzy and cross-eyed,” Burnes said. “I went to the back of the mound, hoping that, blinking a few times, it would go away, and it didn’t. After a bottle of water, I gave it a second, it went away. Scary in the moment, for sure.” . “

Burnes said none of that had ever happened to him before. Counsell considered removing Burnes, but the 28-year-old right-hander bounced back quickly.

“He was getting better as we gave him time,” Counsell said. “Strikeout a side in the sixth was awesome.”

Burnes struck out 13 in six innings. He allowed just two hits and two walks to help the Brewers tie the Reds for the top spot in the NL Central.

“He’s got great stuff,” Reds manager David Bell said. “He threw more breaking balls. I think that led to him being very successful tonight. Obviously, he’s got a good fastball. He used the breaking ball more today and I think that helped him.”

Devin Williams closed for his 21st save. The teams met for the fourth straight time, with the Brewers taking two of three against the Reds in Milwaukee before the All-Star break.

Cincinnati starter Graham Ashcraft (5-6) allowed three hits in six innings.
