It took 12 innings and nearly four hours, but the Brewers managed to take one game in this series, as Prince Fielder hit a walk off home run and untucked in the 12th inning, giving the Brewers a 2-1 victory in a series of three one run contests.

Braden Looper pitched well, scattering ten baserunners (eight hits and two walks) over seven innings while allowing just one earned run. He's posted a 3.24 ERA over his last four starts, lowering his season ERA from 5.03 to 4.77. He also benefited from a 5-4-3 triple play in the sixth inning, the fifth triple play in Brewer franchise history and their first since 1999. The Brewers got a scoreless inning each from David Weathers, Trevor Hoffman, Todd Coffey, Claudio Vargas and Mitch Stetter.

Looper received a no-decision for his trouble, though, as the Brewers managed to score just one run through the first eleven innings of today's game. Casey McGehee drove in a run with an RBI single in the sixth, but the Brewers managed just eight hits in the game and left 13 runners on base. Ryan Braun and McGehee each reached base three times, but the starters in the 6-9 spots in the Brewer lineup (J.J. Hardy, Jason Kendall, Jody Gerut and Braden Looper) went 1-for-14 with three walks. Kendall struck out with runners on first and third in the eighth, and lined out with the bases loaded in the tenth.
