This game felt, to me, a lot less close than it actually was. Dave Bush had his now-typical problem of running up the count. Despite that, all the runs he gave up were after an Alcides Escobar error in the 1st. Marco Estrada's run was also a result of an error by Rickie Weeks.

On the other hand, Weeks made up for it by being patient enough at the bottom of the 10th to let Matt Lindstrom walk him, resulting in the win. Yup, we had a good ol' walkoff walk at Miller Park this lovely afternoon. Alcides Escobar, Carlos Gomez, and Casey McGehee also had a standout day at the plate.
