So, obviously, Yovani Gallardo's performance yesterday was pretty impressive, but Jeff Suppan's performance tonight might have been even more surprising. Suppan allowed a home run to Felipe Lopez, the first batter he faced (that's not the surprising part), then went on to pitch 6.1 scoreless innings after that, allowing just six hits and no walks.

Even with Suppan's performance, though, the Brewers were down 1-0 in the seventh inning until a Rickie Weeks single drove in the tying run, a Prince Fielder bases loaded walk gave the Brewers the lead and Mike Cameron hit a two run double to give the Brewers a 4-1 lead. All told, the Brewers sent nine hitters to the plate against three pitchers in an inning that included three walks, two singles, a double and two wild pitches.

With the win, the Brewers finish April at 12-10, two games over .500 for the first time all season. They also will not be swept for the eighth consecutive series.
