Jungmann wins fourth straight decision

Right-hander Taylor Jungmann, the Brewers' No. 10 prospect, threw six scoreless innings Thursday, helping Triple-A Nashville defeat Fresno at home, 7-0, in Game 2 of a doubleheader. The Grizzlies took the first game, 8-4, splitting the twin bill.

Jungmann struck out seven batters, walked one and held Fresno to two hits. He threw 77 pitches and won his fourth straight decision.

Jungmann began the season with Double-A Huntsville before earning a promotion in May. He has made 17 starts with the Sounds and is 8-5 with a 4.22 ERA after Thursday's victory. He has struck out 86 batters and walked 38 in 89 2/3 innings.

Thursday also marked first baseman Hunter Morris' return to the Sounds. The Brewers' No. 17 prospect suffered a broken arm in late June and spent more than a month on the disabled list before going to the Arizona League and Huntsville for rehab.

Morris appeared as a pinch-hitter in the first game Thursday, grounding out in his lone plate appearance. He started the nightcap at first base and went 2-for-3 with a run and a double before being removed for a pinch runner in the fifth inning.
