Pinch-hitting for Rowdy Tellez, Eduardo Escobar led off the seventh inning with a double to the wall in left-center and Urias had a chance to redeem himself for his earlier gaffes when he connected on an 0-2 fastball from left-hander Tyler Matzek, a Brewers nemesis this series. Despite coming off his bat at 99 MPH, it shot right at third baseman Austin Riley who made an easy throw to first to retire Urias. Matzek retired Omar Narvaez on a fly ball to center then struck out Cain to leave Escobar stranded.

Jace Peterson led off the eighth inning with a four-pitch walk against Braves reliever Luke Jackson and after Wong flew out to left, Willy Adames came back from 0-2 to work Jackson full then singled to center. That put runners at the corners for Christian Yelich, who sent an 86 MPH first-pitch slider right into the Braves' defensive shift for an inning-ending double play.

Milwaukee had one more chance in the inning when Kolten Wong came up with two out. He also worked the count full and when Anderson left a curveball up over the middle of the plate, Wong was ready. It left his bat at 101 MPH but like the two previous batters, the ball shot right at a Braves defender — in this case, first baseman Freddie Freeman who barely moved his feet to get Anderson out of the inning.
