Win Expectancy Graph and Star of the Game Voting

It's amazing how fast things can change. Less than a week ago we were talking about the Brewers' inability to win on the road and wondering if it would eliminate them from contention. Now that they've swept a four game series in Miami, what will we talk about now? 

I guess it's a good thing the draft is this week.

The Brewers struck early tonight, scoring a run in the top of the first, three more in the third on Prince Fielder's 14th home run of the season, and two more in the fourth to build a 6-2 lead. Fielder (2-for-3 with a walk) and Rickie Weeks (1-for-3 with two walks) were both on base three times.

Meanwhile, Zack Greinke received six or more runs of support for his fifth straight start and made it hold up once again. He needed a season-high 111 pitches to do it but held the Marlins to two runs on seven hits over seven innings, walking one and striking out six. Despite the fact that Greinke has posted a 4.38 ERA over his last six starts, the Brewers have scored enough runs to win every game.

Other notes:

  • If tonight's game had resulted in a save situation John Axford would not have been available. He had pitched in each of the last three games and returned to Milwaukee today to be with his wife, who is expecting the couple's first child.
  • Casey McGehee returned to the lineup tonight after being held out of the starting lineup on Sunday, and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. He's now 0-for his last 19.
