Win Expectancy Graph and Star of the Game Voting

 

The bats came alive tonight as everyone in the starting lineup notched at least one hit. Gomez, Lucroy and Marcum each had doubles. The rest of the 13 hits were singles. Lucroy was 3-for-4 on the night. Prince scored two runs.

In the second inning Prince, Casey, Yuni, Corey and Lucroy hit consecutive singles with no outs. Bonehead baserunning kept the Brewers from getting more than three runs.

Shaun Marcum cruised through five innings of one-hit baseball, facing the minimum and had such a low pitch count he seemed destined for a complete game. However, he appeared to hit a wall in the sixth and seventh, when he gave up eight hits and was unable to record an out in the seventh before being pulled in favor of Marco Estrada.  After throwing 48 pitches in the first five innings, Marcum threw 40 pitches in the sixth and seventh before being pulled.

Things got interesting when John Axford came in for the ninth. Alberto Gonzalez reached on a throwing error by Rickie Weeks, advanced to second on defensive indifference and scored on Will Venable's single, to make it 8-6 and bringing the tying run to the plate. Jason Bartlett then singled, sending Venable to third. Ryan Ludwick came to the plate and grounded out to Weeks to preserve the win.
