Snoop Dogg goes viral with hilarious broadcast of Brewers-Reds game

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 on Saturday afternoon. With the win, the first-place Brewers climbed to an impressive 41-29 on the season. The Reds are now 34-36 on the year and continue to try to get back to .500.

The Brewers' offense in the win was powered by a three-run home run by Joey Ortiz, who was acquired by the Baltimore Orioles in the offseason in the Corbin Burnes trade, his sixth of the year.

As exciting as the game was on the field, perhaps the most exciting part of the afternoon took place in the announcer's booth when legendary rapper Snoop Dogg joined the Brewers' television announcers.

Snoop once rose to prominence for his hockey commentating skills, and the same is happening now in baseball. The Brewers posted an abbreviated version of his inning on their social media channels, but it was all Snoop, rhyming about players and cheering on the home team, as well as being completely enamored by Elly De La Cruz's arm.

MLB.com had more information about Snoop's visit and the reason for his stay in town:

In “The Next Episode” for Snoop Dogg, the legendary hip-hop artist and actor made a surprise appearance at the Brewers’ American Family Field.

Before Snoop Dogg performed at the Potawatomi Casino Hotel in Milwaukee on Saturday night, he visited the Brewers’ home stadium before and during the concerts. 3:1 victory about the Reds. He FaceTimed with 90-year-old fan Bob Uecker. He signed a pair of shoes for fellow Skechers fan Wade Miley. He made the rounds of the Brewers clubhouse, threw out a ceremonial first pitch that drew a standing ovation from the stunned crowd of 38,419, and, most memorably of all, a few innings of live commentary in the Brewers' television booth.

The Brewers and Reds end their series on Sunday afternoon at 2:10 p.m. ET.
