SB Nation Coverage

Despite going down 3-0 early on home runs by Hunter Pence and Miguel Tejada, the Brewers rallied behind by Prince Fielder and Corey Hart in the 7th inning and won 4-3.

Jeff Suppan pitched 5+ giving up just three runs. Seth McClung, Carlos Villanueva, and Todd Coffey pitched scoreless ball, and despite putting the first two batters on the bases, Trevor Hoffman racked up another save.

Astro Roy Oswalt pitched 6.1 innings of three-run baseball, but ended up with a no decision.

Two plays of the game for Jason Kendall: the first, with help from Ryan Braun, was tagging Lance Berkman out at the plate. Not only did it end a rally, but Berkman was tossed from the game for arguing and throwing his helmet. The second was to throw the lead runner out at third on a bunt by Kaz Matsui in the bottom of the ninth .

The top five batters in the Brewers order had positive WPA's and Mat Gamel was intentionally walked in just his eighth plate appearance of the season.
