Fangraphs Win Expectancy Graph

Some quick notes from this game:

  • After a really nice first start, Mark Rogers didn't have the greatest start tonight. He gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out five batters over five innings. While that might not be the worst night, he lumped a bunch of those baserunners together, resulting in five earned runs. Still, Rogers threw 49 of his 72 pitches for strikes, which isn't bad. He may have been leaving the ball over the plate, but he didn't seem to get hit extremely hard. He did give up one home run, a solo shot to Carlos Beltran.
  • The Brewers offense, on the other hand, had nothing against Adam Wainwright, who pitched a complete game. They managed just five hits and no walks while striking out seven times. The Brewers only run came in the first inning. Carlos Gomez doubled to lead off and moved to third on a Nyjer Morgan groundout. A sacrifice fly brought him home. That would be the last run the team would score.
  • The only Brewer to reach base twice was Cody Ransom. He singled twice. Gomez, Corey Hart, and Norichika Aoki were the other Brewers to reach today.
  • Livan Hernandez actually pitched in a game today. He gave up a run in two innings. Strangely enough, Francisco Rodriguez was the only Brewer pitcher with a positive WPA. He pitched a perfect eighth inning. I guess when the team is already losing by five runs, he figured he didn't need to give up any more.

The Brewers and Cardinals will go one more time tomorrow. It's a rare Sunday night game, with first pitch scheduled for 7:05. Marco Estrada and Kyle Lohse are set to square off. Should be a blast and a half.
