A series sweep, a well-pitched Jeff Suppan start and the Brewers' 21st consecutive home victory against the Pirates. It was a day of unlikely events.

Jeff Suppan probably saved the lives of countless Jeff Suppan bobbleheads by putting in one of his best outings of the season today. Suppan allowed eleven baserunners in six innings and had the bases loaded in the second and fourth innings, but allowed just one earned run, a solo shot by Garrett Jones.

Casey McGehee supplied the first Brewer run with his 11th home run, then a Jeff Suppan bases loaded walk and a two run single by Craig Counsell supplied the remaining offense. Felipe Lopez went 0-for-4 and is now 2-for-19 since leaving Tuesday's game with a tweaked tendon in his foot.
