The Brewers and Cardinals celebrated Memorial Day with a good, old-fashioned pitcher's duel. Yovani Gallardo started and didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning for the Brewers, but was matched by Chris Carpenter, who took a perfect game into the seventh. All told, Gallardo pitched eight innings, allowed just two hits and four walks, and struck out six. Carpenter also pitched eight innings, and allowed two hits and no walks, striking out ten. Neither pitcher factored in the decision.

Trevor Hoffman pitched a perfect top half of the ninth for the Crew, but Kyle McClellan pitched a perfect bottom half to send it into extra innings. Carlos Villanueva pitched a scoreless top of the tenth, and Bill Hall, who had entered the game as a defensive replacement for Mat Gamel, came through with a walkoff single in the bottom of the tenth, driving home Casey McGehee with the game's only run.
