STATS Play-by-play

Manny Parra went six innings today, what could've been a solid start. Unfortunately for Manny, the Pirates played better than his teammates. Ross Ohlendorf performed solidly, going seven innings plus a batter (103 pitches). Oddly enough, Manny faced 28 batters in his six innings, two more than Ohlendorf saw with an extra inning of play.

The only real hope that the Brewers would win came in the top of the ninth inning, when BA accidentally said the score backwards. Ryan Braun was able to tack on another run with the help of Casey McGehee and Prince Fielder. Sadly, Mike Cameron was the next to hit and the rest is history.

Let's hope the day off on Thursday will give the team time to get back the energy from over the weekend.
