Win Expectancy Graph and Star of the Game Voting

I don't know about you guys, but I always enjoy wins more when I never saw them coming.

Randy Wolf treated us to just such a win tonight, pitching six shutout innings and outdueling Roy Halladay and the Phillies. He allowed just two hits and three walks while striking out five, and his scoreless streak is now at 12.2 innings.

On offense, Ryan Braun was the story tonight. He went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks and his fifth home run against Halladay, scoring two of the first three Brewer runs. Prince Fielder also went 3-for-4 against Halladay, and is now 6-for-10 in his career against the two-time Cy Young winner. All told, the Brewers hung six earned runs on Halladay, with the last two scoring on Casey McGehee's home run in the seventh.

Through 16 games this season, the Brewers hadn't scored more than six runs. Tonight, in a game started by Roy Halladay, they scored nine. I guess you never know.

Then, just when you thought nothing could go wrong today, we got this: Craig Counsell replaced Ryan Braun defensively in the eighth inning. It was Counsell's first career game in left field. As of this writing, I haven't heard if something is wrong with Braun or if Ron Roenicke simply decided to rest him.
