Johnny Hellweg just didn't have it tonight. I know the box score says he only gave up one run, but trust me, he did not have it. There is a reason Alfredo Figaro was credited for the win, and that reason is because Hellweg was lifted after 4 innings and 80 pitches, only 37 of those strikes. He hit David Wright in the head during the 3rd inning and immediately followed that up with plunking Lucas Duda. Then he walked the next batter. Luckily this resulted in absolutely no runs, as this was on two outs and the next batter flied out. The damage had been done earlier in the inning on a walk, a steal, an error, and then a groundout. In total, Hellweg walked four batters, hit two batters, and threw a wild pitch.

The Brewers scored all their runs in the 2nd inning, using this year's Brewers tricks: walks, singles, and a sacrifice bunt.

Tomorrow, the Brewers will send out Yovani Gallardo in his last start of the season against Carlos Torres, who has been around MLB since 2009 and despite that, I have not heard of him. Perhaps I should have actually watched the Rockies in 2012. Game time is 6:10, again.
