Win Expectancy Graph and Star of the Game Voting

This is probably about as bad as the Brewers could look on a seven game road trip where they still managed to win two games.

This one was over in the first inning when the Red Sox sent eleven batters to the plate and scored six runs against Yovani Gallardo, who had absolutely nothing going for him today. Gallardo allowed the first seven batters he faced to reach and needed 46 pitches to get through the opening frame. He pitched scoreless innings in the second and third, but allowed the first two batters he faced in the fourth to reach and had to be lifted very early. 

The Brewers scored a couple of runs on Nyjer Morgan's second home run of the season and another on Prince Fielder's 20th, but they didn't much matter. Fielder's home run was the 212th of his career, tying him with Geoff Jenkins for second on the Brewers' all time list. He and Jenkins are also the only Brewers to post six 20 home run seasons.

Mark DiFelice made his 2011 debut in the seventh, allowing a run on two hits in an inning of work. One of the hits and the earned run may be wiped off the record later, though, as it came on a fly ball to right that clanked off Corey Hart's glove.

Wakefield's win was the sixth of his career against the Brewers, but his first since 1997.
