Win Expectancy Graph and Star of the Game Voting

Milwaukee fell behind early tonight and faced a 3-0 deficit before Roy Halladay had thrown even one pitch. Shane Victorino started the game with a bloop single that fell out of the reach of Corey Hart. After recording an out, Shaun Marcum gave up a single to Hunter Pence and Ryan Howard followed with a home run.

After giving up the three runs in the first inning, Marcum settled down and gave up no more runs until the seventh inning, when two more runs crossed the plate on run scoring singles by Raul Ibanez and Carlos Ruiz. Marcum went 6.2 innings and gave up five runs on nine hits and four walks.

Halladay was Halladay--holding the Brewers to just one run over eight innings on four hits and three walks, while striking out nine. The three walks were a season high for Halladay. Two of the four hits came off the bat of Ryan Braun.

Milwaukee loaded the bases with only one out in the fourth inning on singles by Braun, Taylor Green and a walk to Casey McGehee but Yuniesky Betancourt hit into a double play to kill the rally. The Brewers avoided the shut out when McGehee led off the seventh inning with a double, advanced to third on a Green ground out and scored when Betancourt lofted one to center field. 

The Brewers made things a bit more interesting in the ninth inning after Halladay left the game. Prince Fielder led off the inning with a single and would come around to score on a single by Betancourt. Jonathan Lucroy’s sacrifice fly plated McGehee, who had walked, but George Kottaras grounded out to end the game.
