MILWAUKEE – Rowdy Tellez hit his first two homers as Brewer, Corbin Burnes hit six strong innings and Milwaukee beat the Chicago White Sox 6-1 on Saturday night.

The White Sox were trailing 4-0 in the first four innings, giving up a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get back into the game in game five. They had the bases loaded and no one was out when Leury García pounded a roller up the third baseline to bring Moncada home.
But the run was taken off the board after the reps showed Moncada never touched home plate. His right foot hit the dirt just inches from the plate, and then his left foot landed in the batter’s box.
