Things more exciting than this game until a certain point: the Wave, according to multiple accounts on Twitter. As for me personally, my laundry, dishes, and hunt for a Bundt cake recipe I can make with ingredients I have on hand. It was exciting when Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez hit back-to-back home runs in the 1st inning, and Braun's second home run of the game was also exciting, but the excitement of the Brewers' 3-1 lead was punctured by a horrible 5th inning for Marco Estrada. With two outs, he gave up a single to Ryan Howard and then walked Domonic Brown. After Laynce Nix singled, he gave up a double to Kevin Frandsen that cleared the bases. That was all the Phillies needed to take the lead behind an incredible performance by Cliff Lee. Lee allowed only two non-home run hits, both singles, in 7.2 innings. He struck out 11 Brewers.

However, the last thing Lee (and Frandsen's error) did led to a rally. Rickie Weeks reached 2nd on the error. Josh Lindblom entered the game and intentionally walked Braun. As tends to happen, he unintentionally walked the next batter. Corey Hart hit a grand slam right over Brown's glove and into the visitors' bullpen.
