SB Nation Coverage

It was a game of chicken between two soft-tossing lefties tonight at Miller Park, and, unfortunately for the Brewers, Randy Wolf blinked first.  After trading zeroes for five innings, the Giants pushed across five runs in a disastrous sixth inning that featured four walks by Wolf (two of which were intentional) sandwiched around a knee-buckling error by Craig Counsell, who threw away a potential double play ball that would have ended the inning.*  It got uglier from there, as Rickie Weeks couldn't snag a line drive that plated two more runs and Wolf allowed a run-scoring single to Madison Bumgarner.

The sticks went silent once again, as Bumgarner kept the Crew off balance with a steady diet of slow crap.  Had it not been for a ninth inning pinch-hit single by Joe Inglett, Milwaukee would have been blanked for the ninth time in 2010.  The Brewers managed only three hits off the Mad Bum -- and none by Corey Hart, who saw his hitting streak end at 20 games -- and Ryan Braun continued his confounding slide at the plate, looking absolutely clueless in four at-bats.

In the silver lining department, Carlos Gomez drew a walk.  Sorry.  That's all I've got.

* Tonight's Life Lesson: even Deities bleed.  Or: strong men also cry.  Your pick.
