Win Expectancy Graph

Sorry this is so short --- I'm typing this on my phone on the way home from Wauwatosa. A pair of unlikely heroes powered the Brewers this afternoon at Miller Park. Marco Estrada held the Rats to one hit over five innings, and Yuni Betancourt(!) knocked one out of the park for the game's only run, leading the Crew to their 15th win in their past 17 games. The Pirates threatened in the 9th when Xavier Paul led off with a triple over the head of T-Plush, but Axford coerced two groundouts in a drawn-up infield before striking out Neil Walker to end the game. The loss was the Pirates' 35th in their last 38 games in Milwaukee.
