Win Expectancy Graph and Star of the Game Voting

The Brewers entered today in first place and will remain there tonight, but they certainly didn't play like a contending team in this one.

The Brewer defense let Zack Greinke down early tonight, as two runs scored after Nyjer Morgan fell down in pursuit of a fly ball in center that was ruled a triple. Then he melted down in the second, allowing five more runs on three hits and two walks, including a long home run for Nick Swisher. He was lifted after the inning with this line: 2 IP, 5 H, 3 BB, 0 K, 7 ER.

Marco Estrada followed Greinke to the mound and wasn't terrible for a while, allowing just one run in his first three innings of work. Unfortunately, he allowed three runs in the sixth before leaving the game after taking a line drive off his foot.

In other notes:

  • The loss dropped the Brewers to 15-25 on the road this season. They've been outscored 48-20 in their last five games away from Miller Park.
  • Ryan Braun doubled to lead off the eighth, extending his hitting streak to 18 games. 
  • Mat Gamel made his 2011 debut by starting at DH tonight. He swung at and made contact with the first pitch in each of his first three at bats, and finished the night 2-for-4.
  • The Brewers made outs on the basepaths when Gamel was nailed trying to take second on a sac fly, and Corey Hart was thrown out trying to score from second on a single.
