Jacob Nottingham's grand slam rallies Brewers to win over Royals

Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia (3) celebrates with Luis Urias and Jedd Gyorko after hitting a three-run home run during the fifth inning Friday night at Miller Park.

Jacob Nottingham answered the call Friday night with his first major league grand slam, helping the Brewers wipe out an early four-run deficit in a 9-5 victory over the Kansas City Royals at Miller Park.

Catcher Salvador Perez went 4-for-5 and finished a triple short of hitting for the cycle, while driving in four runs for the Royals.

Perez put Milwaukee (24-26) in an early hole, driving in two of Kansas City’s three first-inning runs with a double and scoring when Nottingham made a throwing error trying to catch Hunter Dozier stealing second.

Perez’s RBI single in the third gave the Royals a 4-0 lead but the Brewers struck back in the bottom of the inning, starting with a leadoff home run by Yelich.

After Jake Newberry struck out Luis Urias, Nottingham hit a first-pitch slider onto the patio in left for Milwaukee’s first grand slam of the season.
