Fangraphs Win Expectancy Graph

The Brewers are inching ever closer to "sell-mode".

After seven straight wonderful games, Yovani Gallardo had an awful first inning. He allowed four hits, including a two-run home run to Ryan Ludwick, en route to giving up four runs. The rest of his 5.2 innings were better--five hits and zero runs. However, just one start after notching 14 strikeouts and 0 walks, Gallardo struck out just one hitter with zero walks. Just a very odd night for Yovani.

After a walk, John Axford notched the last out of the sixth inning. Jose Veras had a little trouble in the seventh, allowing two more runs on a Brandon Phillips bomb.

The Brewers scored a run in the fourth inning as Corey Hart drove in Travis Ishikawa, who hit a ground-rule double. Milwaukee added one more in the sixth when Ishikawa scored on an Aramis Ramirez double-play grounder. The Brewers offense was pretty listless the rest of the game. Ishikawa (two doubles) and Corey Hart (a single and a walk) were the only players to reach base twice.

The Brewers and Reds go at it one more time tomorrow as Mike Fiers and Johnny Cueto go head-to-head. First pitch is scheduled for 12:10.
