Fangraphs Win Expectancy Chart

I wasn't able to see most of this game, but I left when it was 1-0 so I liked what I saw, and I'm sure I would have liked the rest of the game, too, judging by the final score. 

Zach Greinke was very good, going seven innings and allowing just seven hits and two runs while striking out nine Cardinals hitters. 

The Brewers rode a big fourth inning that featured a two run home run from Rickie Weeks, who went 2-3 today.  Corey Hart also drove in a couple runs that inning with a double that scored Prince Fielder and Casey McGehee.

The win put the Brewers just a half game behind the Cards.  If Milwaukee can ride Shaun Marcum to victory, they'll be leaving this series in first place!
