Brewers Break Out the Brooms, Sweep Dodgers 6-2

Zack Greinke pitch face is scary. Aramis Ramirez being awesome and hitting a home run is much less scary. Unless you are Chad Billingsley.

W: Zack Greinke (6-2)
L: Chad Billingsley (2-4)

HR: Aramis Ramirez (5), Carlos Gomez (2)

MVP: Aramis Ramirez (+.207)
LVP: Norichika Aoki (-.073)

Win Expectancy Graph and Star of the Game Voting

The Brewers finally do something interesting and sweep a series. Not just any series, but a 4-game series on the road applying the brakes to the NL West-leading Dodgers.

The scoring in this one was done very early and very late. The Dodgers scored their first run in the second inning when Greinke gave up a single to Billingsley, scoring Adam Kennedy. Greinke was the beneficiary of 2 great double plays tonight. Tim Dillard benefited from the other one.

Kameron Loe finally showed up in a game. Unfortunately, due to tired Axford, so did Dillard. He was pulled after 2 outs in the 9th in favor of Manny Parra, who let his inherited runner score. Thankfully, Carlos Gomez had hit a home run during the top of the 9th.

Aramis Ramirez is catching fire during this road trip, giving the Brewers the sort of production we fans were hoping we'd see someday.

The Crew returns home for tomorrow (well, today at this point, sadly for both we who stayed up to watch and the men who stayed up to play) with a 7:10 start.against the Pirates. Randy Wolf (and who will catch for him?!) faces off against Kevin Correia.
