Win Expectancy Graph

The Brewers only have two wins in May, so maybe winning the first two games in the Pirates series was too much to ask for.

The Brewers carried a 3-1 lead into the sixth inning tonight and a 3-2 lead into the eighth, but John Axford blew the lead and, four innings later, Andrew McCutchen's walkoff home run off Mike Fiers ended it in the 12th.

Kyle Lohse had an out-of-character outing tonight, but managed to wiggle off the hook. He allowed two runs on five hits over 5.2 innings, walking five and striking out three. Those five walks were the most he's allowed in a game since 2008 (h/t Cheeseandcorn), and it was only the second time he's walked more than one batter as a Brewer. For his trouble, he received a no-decision.

Jean Segura continues to be this team's best surprise as he drove in a pair of runs tonight, hitting a home run in the first and plating a run with an RBI groundout in the fifth. He now has 17 hits in his last nine games, including four home runs.

Tonight's game was delayed in the top of the eleventh when a Yuniesky Betancourt foul ball hit home plate umpire Fieldin Culbreth in the collarbone and actually wedged between his mask and shoulder. Second base umpire Bill Welke finished the game behind the plate.

This series continues tomorrow with another 6:05 start. Yovani Gallardo will get the ball for the Brewers to take on Wandy Rodriguez.
