Chris Narveson pitched a better game than Edwin Jackson did two days ago when he threw a no-hitter.  In fact, Narveson allowed five baserunners to Jackson's eight.  The Narv-Dog was absolutely fantastic today as he pitched eight innings with seven strikeouts and basically looked like he was pitching to keep his rotation spot when Doug Davis makes his inevitable return.  If Narveson can keep pitching as well as he did today, it could go a long way towards solidifying a starting rotation that has been in a constant state of flux. John Axford came on for the save in the ninth inning.

Offensively, the Brewers only needed one at-bat to win the game, as Rickie Weeks smacked a lead-off homerun to start the game off on the right foot.  Weeks also doubled and singled twice as he went 4-5 today.  Corey Hart and Prince Fielder also drove in runs, with this being the fourth straight game in which Prince has an RBI, and Casey McGehee went 2-3 with a double.  All in all a good win for the Brewers.

Up next for the Brewers are the Houston Astros.
