You knew the Brewers were due to win one like this eventually. After finding new ways to lose nearly every day for months, the Brewers got the game tying run tonight on a home run from their starting pitcher (Gallardo's second of the season), and two insurance runs on a broken-bat home run for George Kottaras.
Yovani Gallardo had another great performance tonight, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks in seven innings, striking out four. He also got on base twice, once via HBP and again via his home run. He threw 114 pitches on the night, only 68 of them for strikes.
At the plate, Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4, walked, stole his seventh base and drove in Casey McGehee with both singles. Prince Fielder and George Kottaras each went 2-for-4 with a walk and a home run, while Corey Hart went 0-for-2 but drew two walks.
As bad as the Brewers looked in the first two games of this series, they could still salvage a split with a win tomorrow night. See you back here in the morning!
