SBNation Coverage

If you tuned in late, you missed all the scoring tonight: The two teams combined to score 12 runs in the first three innings, and the Reds jumped out to an early 7-5 lead, capped by Edwin Encarnacion's 3rd inning grand slam that gave the Reds a lead that turned out to be insurmountable.

Gallardo rebounded to pitch perfect innings in the fourth and fifth, but still allowed seven earned runs on three hits and four walks in five innings. Mark DiFelice, Todd Coffey and Mitch Stetter combined to pitch four scoreless innings to keep the Brewers in the game, but the offense never picked them up.

The Brewers had plenty of opportunities to come back and tie the game, loading the bases in the fourth and eighth, and having runners on first and second in the seventh, but failed to score in all of those opportunities. Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun went 0-for-6 and left 11 runners on base, but did combine to walk four times.
