After surrendering two runs in the first, the Brewers ran out to an early 5-2 lead tonight and for a while it looked like they'd never look back, until Carlos Villanueva allowed two runs in the top of the eighth and the game was tied at 5. The mood didn't remain sober for long, however, as the Brewers sent ten batters to the plate in the bottom half of the inning, plating five runs and building a nice cushion for Trevor Hoffman's first Brewer appearance.

Braden Looper threw over 100 pitches in five innings, but allowed just two runs on six hits and four walks. Mark DiFelice, Mitch Stetter and Todd Coffey combined to pitch two scoreless innings, and Hoffman pitched a scoreless ninth.

The Brewers drew eight walks in the game, allowing them to score ten runs on just eight hits. Prince Fielder was the only Brewer with multiple hits, going 2-for-4 with a triple.
