It looks like the Brewers small cold streak might already be over.  This game was never in doubt as the Brewers scored seven runs in the first two innings and Zack Greinke just completely mowed through the Cincinnati lineup. 

There were many great offensive performances from the Brewers today:  Corey Hart 3-4 with a solo homer, a double, and two runs, Carlos Gomez was 2-5 with a two run home run (his first since July 1) and two runs scored, Prince Fielder scored two runs and had a two run homer, and Rickie Weeks was 2-3 with two RBI. In addition, Ryan Braun had a 3-4 day, bringing his batting average up to .336--five points ahead of Jose Reyes for the NL lead, and tied with Adrian Gonzalez for the MLB lead. 

As I alluded to before, Zack Greinke was phenomenal.  Today, he gave up just two hits and one run in seven innings while striking out ten batters.  Tim Dillard and Takashi Saito finished up the game with two perfect innings.

The Brewers magic number is down to four, and could move all the way down to three with a Cardinals loss tonight.
