It was billed as a great pitching matchup and the game didn't disappoint. Yovani Gallardo struck out eight in seven innings while allowing six hits and three walks. Unfortunately, three of those hits came in the sixth inning, one of them a three-run home run off the bat of Brandon Inge. That home run was the difference as Justin Verlander carved up the Brewers offense. He struck out eight and allowed eight baserunners over 7 2/3 innings. The only runs he allowed came on solo home runs by Casey McGehee and Craig Counsell. Bobby Seay and Fernando Rodney finished off the series sweep.
