The Brewers bats were far from the top of their game today, but they found a way to win lose anyway. (blame people who post and run, Mr. Snow, for the now-awkward intro)

Here's something I don't say often: Jeff Suppan was masterful today, but the Brewer bats couldn't pick him up.

Carlos Zambrano shut the Brewers down today, allowing just one run on five hits and three walks in seven innings, but Suppan matched him pitch for pitch, allowing just one run of his own on four hits and two walks in seven innings of his own.

The story of the day for the Brewers was missed opportunities: they had runners in scoring position in the third, fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth, but went hitless in all of those opportunities, scoring one run on a bases loaded walk. J.J. Hardy and Mike Cameron came to the plate nine times and had fewer hits (none) than Jeff Suppan (one). Jeff Suppan was also thrown out at the plate to end an inning.

In the tenth inning, the Cubs had a runner on third with two outs, so Ken Macha had Mark DiFelice walk Milton Bradley and Geovany Soto to load up the bases for Jake Fox, and DiFelice walked him (on a ridiculous call) to end the game.
