Finally, a nice come-from-behind victory.

The Brewers were in an early hole tonight, as the Nationals scored a run in the first and three more in the second (including a bases loaded walk), but Manny Parra settled down and held the Nats to just one more run over six innings of work. Parra's final line: 6 IP, 5 ER, 9 H, 5 BB.

Meanwhile, the Brewers mounted three middle-inning rallies against Garrett Mock and Tyler Clippard, and capped it off with a two-run pinch hit home run from Casey McGehee in the sixth to give the Brewers a 6-5 advantage which they did not relinquish. Todd Coffey pitched two scoreless innings to get the ball to Trevor Hoffman, who recorded his 23rd save, striking out Adam Dunn to end the threat in the ninth.
