SBNation Coverage

The offense got going early tonight against Bud Norris, scoring in each of the first three innings. Ryan Braun got things started with an RBI single in the first, driving in Corey Hart. Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart added three more runs to the board in the second inning and Ryan Braun homered in the third to give the Brewers a 5-1 lead.

But then, the offense died. And so did the pitching. Manny Parra struggled with his control all night and had thrown 96 pitches by 6th inning. He was left in to start the 6th inning but allowed the first two runners to reach and was lifed in favor of Carlos Villanueva. Who was lifted in favor of Todd Coffey. Who was soon lifted in favor of Zach Braddock. Long story short, both of Manny's baserunners scored, and then some. And then some more. David Riske allowed two runs in 1 inning, the first runs he has given up this year.

The game was far enough out of reach that Chris Capuano rose from the dead and was actually allowed to pitch the ninth; his first appearance since June 12th. He pitched a scoreless inning.
