Win Expectancy Graph

If you watched all nine innings of this game, you deserve a medal.  Last night's game finished in 2 hours and 10 minutes.  By the time the 130 minute mark was reached tonight, the game was in the fifth inning.  All told, tonight's game lasted 3 hours and 41 minutes, the team's longest nine-inning game of the season.

Yovani Gallardo could not fool anyone early, allowing four consecutive hits to start the game.  He struggled through 2 2/3 innings, allowing ten hits and six runs (five earned).   Todd Coffey recorded one out before Chris Capuano struggled through three innings in relief, allowing four more runs on six hits.  David Riske gave up two more runs in his inning before Trevor Hoffman threw a scoreless frame.  Joe Inglett made an otherwise lifeless game exciting by taking the mound in top of the ninth inning.  He was the first Brewers position player to pitch in a game since Trent Durrington in 2004.  He threw six pitches, all 52-56mph knuckleballs, and set three Reds down in order.

Gallardo did stay in the game long enough to hit his fourth home run of the season and the eighth of his short career.  Rickie Weeks also homered for the third consecutive game, giving him 22 on the year.  Alcides Escobar and Prince Fielder added doubles to the cause but the Brewers couldn't score against the Reds' bullpen, which allowed just two hits over 5 1/3 innings.
