For almost four innings, it didn't look so good. Manny Parra allowed three runs in the first two innings and John Koronka, making his first start since 2007, was holding the Brewers scoreless. All of a sudden in the fourth, though, Prince Fielder connected for a two-run home run, and after a Rickie Weeks solo shot in the fifth, Fielder hit another two-run shot to give the Brewers a 5-3 lead they never relinquished.

All told, Parra allowed just those three runs in six innings on six hits and two walks, striking out eight. Carlos Villanueva, Mark DiFelice and Trevor Hoffman pitched one perfect inning each to finish the game.
