Today, my friends, was a good day. I woke up sick at 1:30, and it was still a good day. About ten seconds before I turned on the TV, Prince Fielder had finally gotten the bases-loaded monkey off his back, doubling in three runs with two outs to break the game open.

After that, all eyes were on Dave Bush, who, rumor has it, was in the midst of throwing a no-hitter. Matt Stairs may have ended that bid with a solo homer juuuuuust off the right-field foul pole in the eighth inning, but our collective cap is off to you, Bushie (please get a new nickname). Hell of a game, and in the service of the Brewers' first series win, too.

*Okay, Bill Hall was technically the LVP, with a -.054 WPA, but I'm letting him off the hook because he made the best defensive play of the year to prolong Bush's no-no.
