Tellez HR, throw spark Brewers over Braves 2-1 in Game 1

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Rowdy Tellez spoiled Charlie Morton’s gem with a two-run homer in the seventh inning and threw out a runner at home plate, leading the Milwaukee Brewers over the Atlanta Braves 2-1 in the opener of their NL Division Series.

Corbin Burnes, Adrian Houser and Josh Hader combined on a four-hitter that gave Milwaukee the early lead in this best-of-five series.

Game 2 is Saturday in Milwaukee. Former Brewer Orlando Arcia grounded to second with runners on the corners to end the game.

That came after Brewers catcher Omar Narváez blocked Hader’s 1-2 pitch in the dirt to keep Freddie Freeman at third base.
