I didn't get a chance to see this game as I worked through it, but it looks like I missed a sterling outing from Yovani Gallardo, who allowed just one unearned run in seven innings while striking out ten Cubs players.  Gallardo gave up just six hits and two walks while throwing 104 pitches.

LaTroy Hawkins, on the other hand, blew up a little bit today.  He only managed to record one out, and gave up three earned runs on four hits.  K-Rod and Axford came in to shut down the Cubs offense, though. 

Corey Hart had himself a nice day, going 3-3 with a double, a triple, and a home run while driving in two runs and scoring two runs.  He also reached first base via walk, so in my book that counts as a cycle.  Unfortunately, my book does not coincide with the official MLB record book, so Hart will have to wait until another day to officially record a cycle.

Casey McGehee also had a nice day, going 2-4 and driving in a couple runs with a homer. 

St. Louis was shut out by the Pirates, so the Brewers NL Central lead just keeps growing and growing.  This is also something like the eight bajillionth straight series the Brewers have not lost. Hooray winning!

The Brewers and Cubs play again tomorrow at 1:10.
