Stat Of The Night: Unusually Wild

Shaun Marcum had a rough Brewer debut tonight, allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits and lasting just 4.2 innings. What's more notable, though, is Marcum's walk total: After averaging just 1.4 walks per start over all of 2010, he walked five batters in his relatively brief outing tonight. Those five walks tied a career high:

Date Opponent IP H R ER BB K
4/2/2011 Reds 4.2 4 4 3 5 7
6/20/2010 Giants 5 4 2 1 5 8
8/30/2006 Indians 6.1 4 1 1 5 4

There is some good news, though: When Marcum walked five Giants last season, he came back to beat the Phillies in his next start. 

Brewer starting pitchers didn't walk five batters in a game for the first time last season until May 2, when Randy Wolf walked six. The Brewers' starter also hadn't walked five in a game since Wolf did it on August 30. As a team, they did it ten times last season and Wolf was responsible for four of them.
