Andruw Monasterio hit a game-ending single in the 10th inning after entering as a replacement for injured Joey Ortiz, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Texas Rangers 6-5 on Wednesday helped by Jake Bauers' grand slam and Jackson Chourio's inside-the-park homer.

Milwaukee recovered after wasting a 4-1 lead in Dallas Keuchel's Brewers debut and the NL Central leader swept a three-game sweep from the World Series champion.

With Willy Adames on second base as the automatic runner, Bauers popped out on a bunt attempt off Jacob Latz (2-3), Rhys Hoskins was intentionally walked and Sal Frelick popped out. After a wild pitch, Monasterio lined a single to left-center.

Jared Koenig (7-1) pitched around an intentional walk in the 10th.

Christian Yelich had three singles and made his 200th stolen base.

Keuchel, the 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner, was acquired from Seattle on Monday and allowed five runs, eight hits and a walk over four innings in his first big league appearance. The 36-year-old left-hander became Milwaukee's big league-high 14th starting pitcher this season.

Nathaniel Lowe hit an RBI single in the first, and Lowe and Jonah Heim hit homers off him in the fourth.

Bauers homered in the third off Nathan Eovaldi for a 4-1 lead, a 444-foot drive for his seventh home run this season. Lowe hit a two-run homer in the fourth, Heim connected on the next pitch to tie the score and Robbie Grossman put Texas ahead 5-4 with an RBI single.

Chourio hit a 264-foot liner in the bottom half that landed in front of a diving center fielder Derek Hill and bounced to the wall near the 400-foot sign. Right fielder Adolis Garcia’s throw to Josh Smith was wide and Chourio beat the shortstop’s relay to the plate.

Chourio also made a diving catch in right field to rob Garcia of a hit in the seventh inning.

Eovaldi allowed five runs and a season-high nine hits in seven innings.
