There weren't any shadows to blame at Miller Park today, but the Brewer bats took a nice, long afternoon nap anyway, as the Mets defeated the Crew 1-0 for the second time this season.

Yovani Gallardo was the tough luck loser, allowing just one earned run on five hits and two walks in seven innings of work, striking out a career high 12. He also threw 114 pitches today, meaning he's thrown 110 or more in four of his last six starts and five of seven.

The Brewers threatened in the eighth, with runners on first and second and two outs, but Sean Green retired J.J. Hardy on a grounder to third to end the threat. Green relieved Mike Pelfrey, who allowed no runs on six hits and two walks in 7.2 innings.
