WPA Game Recap

The Brewers weren't going to win every 1-run game in 2014. They also weren't going to win all of their extra-innings games in 2014. They happened to lose one of each tonight, falling to the Padres in 12 on a home run rom Chase Headley.

The game was very quiet throughout the regulation innings. Gallardo kept up his good work early in the season with 7 impressive innings with 4 strikeouts, allowing 5 hits, 2 walks, and one earned run. That run scored in the fifth. With runners on the corners and no one out, Ian Kennedy laid down a nice squeeze bunt that Gallardo got to but bobbled an attempt at a bare-hand pickup, allowing Kennedy to reach. He was able to get out of the inning without allowing anything else.

Scooter Gennett answered immediately in the bottom of the fifth with a home run to right-center. Braun followed with a fly-out to very deep center field. There was not much offense the rest of the evening. After dominating performances from Zach Duke (2 strikeouts) and Jim Henderson (struck out the side) in the 8th and 9th innings, Jean Segura reached on an error with one out in the bottom of the ninth. With pinch-hitter Rickie Weeks up, Segura stole second but Weeks took a called third strike on the inside corner from Dale Thayer, and Carlos Gomez flew out to center to send the game to extra innings for the second time in three days.

Alfredo Figaro pitched a scoreless top of the tenth, indicative of how much the pen has worked lately. He was helped by yet another late-inning diving stop by Mark Reynolds at first base, who scrambled to the bag to beat Everth Cabrera and end the inning with a runner on second. In the 11th, he was even more impressive, hitting 97 mph multiple times and striking out 2 and inducing a pop-up.

Scooter Gennett led off the bottom half  of the 10th with a single, but Braun struck out, Ramirez flew to right, and Davis (with Gennett advancing to second) flew out to end the threat. The Brewers got nowhere near first base in the 11th, and with two outs in the inning, Roenicke chose to let Figaro bat rather than use Bianchi or Herrera to pinch-hit and go to Wei-Chung Wang.

In the top of the 12th, Chase Headley led off against Figaro (in his third inning of work) with a long home run. Figaro finished off the inning and gave the top of the order the chance to tie it in the bottom of the 12th. Huston Street retired the Brewers in order, on groundouts for Carlos Gomez and Scooter Gennett and a called third strike on Ryan Braun on a perfect pitch on the outside corner.
