Williams finished his start strong, striking out seven of the last nine batters he faced before yielding to right-hander Chad Thompson to start the eighth inning.
The Timber Rattlers employ a tandem starter system, which has given Williams the chance to work as both a starter and a reliever this season. But no matter when he pitches, he's found a way to win. He has won his last seven decisions and is 8-1 with a 2.36 ERA in 107 innings.
Williams, the Brewers' fourth-round pick in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, leads the Midwest League with a 0.94 WHIP, ranks third in ERA and fourth with 112 strikeouts in 107 innings.
