Joey Ortiz hit a two-run double to finish off a five-run third inning, securing the Milwaukee Brewers’ 6-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday.

Brice Turang also contributed with a solo home run for the Brewers, who won against the Red Sox for the second day in a row in their three-game series.

The Red Sox, dressed in their City Connect uniforms featuring bright yellow jerseys with powder blue lettering and hats, couldn’t get any hits through the first six innings. Ceddanne Rafaela brought in two runs for Boston.

Colin Rea (4-2) allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings of relief after Jared Koenig took care of the first four outs.

Rea gave up a leadoff double to Rafael Devers off the center-field wall in the seventh inning, ending the no-hit attempt.

“I was watching it from the training room and didn’t want to move,” Koenig said. “I was hoping Colin was going to keep it going, but that’s a tough thing to do.”

The last time the Brewers had a no-hitter was on September 11, 2021, when pitchers Corbin Burnes and Josh Hader combined to beat the Cleveland Indians 3–0.

Trevor Megill secured his eighth save by striking out David Hamilton with two runners on base.

All five of Milwaukee’s runs in the third inning came with two outs, with four consecutive hits off Boston starter Nick Pivetta (2-3). Jake Bauers, Gary Sánchez, and Sal Frelick each had an RBI single before Ortiz’s hit into the left-center gap.

“Two outs nobody on, six straight hitters came to the plate — impressive,” Milwaukee manager Pat Murphy said. “Kind of relentless. Every pitch is important, two outs nobody on. … Just keep pecking away like that, like a woodpecker, never stop.”

Turang hit a home run over Boston’s bullpen in the eighth inning.

Pivetta allowed five runs and seven hits in 3 1/3 innings, but he did reach a milestone by recording his 1,000th career strikeout when he got William Contreras swinging on a curveball in the third inning.

“I got behind guys and walked guys,” Pivetta said. “I wasn’t able to get the job done.”

Koenig started for the second consecutive game. The last Brewers’ pitcher to do that was Zack Greinke, who did it three straight times in 2012. He started on July 7, was ejected in the first inning, started the next day, and then the first game after the All-Star break.
