Travis Shaw homered and hit a game-winning single, as the Milwaukee Brewers scored three runs in the 11th inning to beat the scuffling Los Angeles Dodgers 6-5 on Saturday, May 1, 2021. The game was tied at 2 after nine innings and 3-all after 10.

In the 11th, Drew Smith, who entered Saturday batting .222, hit a two-run triple off Drew Rasmussen to give the Dodgers a 5-3 lead.

But Milwaukee, despite owning the lowest team batting average (.215) in the National League entering Saturday and having 16 players on the injured list, responded.

The Brewers loaded the bases with no outs after left-hander Alex Vesia (0-1), who was called up earlier in the day, started the inning with two walks. He was replaced by right-hander Mitch White, who had pitched 3-2/3 innings this season. White gave up a sacrifice fly to Kolten Wong, an RBI single to Avisail Garcia and the game-ending hit to Shaw, which scored Mario Feliciano in his major league debut. Feliciano had walked.

“Guys just learn how to win. They expect to win. You come into spring training, you’re expecting to win the division, compete for the division and compete for the World Series,” Shaw said.
