They unsuccessfully attempted an inside-the-park homer in the top of the seventh and executed a triple play in the bottom of the inning.
Tellez broke a scoreless tie with a two-run homer in the sixth.
Taylor added a three-run homer and Hunter Renfroe delivered a two-run single as the Brewers broke the game open in the eighth.
