It was a good game for Dylan Covey to see.
Towards the beginning of the game, it really looked like the Brewers were going to lose. Randy Wolf had some control issues throughout the first few innings. He pitched through the seventh, throwing 97 pitches and hitting two players in the process. It seems as though this was the game of plunkings, with Casey McGehee and Craig Counsell all becoming casualties in the process.
But yay, an Escobar single in the third inning began the rally that eventually led to a Braun grand slam. And thus began the scoring. Counsell walked on a ten pitch at bat in the sixth inning. He then stole a base while Alcides Escobar was batting. Unfortunately, nothing came of Craiggers' hard work, as he was thrown out at home, Braun scored on a wild pitch by reliever Trevor Bell. There were a few other runs scored, but I lost track in all the excitement.
And there was much rejoicing.
