Win Probability Graph

I was listening to bits of this game on the radio and I'm glad I didn't see it. Jon Niese and Francisco Rodriguez held the Brewers to 4 hits tonight. Yovani Gallardo did the opposite, giving up 10 hits in 4 innings. He ran out of any possible luck in the top of the 5th, giving up 4 consecutive singles before giving way to a surprisingly effective Tim Dillard.

The Brewers defense had its issues tonight. The Mets stole 3 bases off of Jonathan Lucroy and various pitchers. Luckily Casey McGehee's two errors did not lead to any more Mets runs. His defense, even more than his batting, has been a worry for Brewers fans all season and tonight was no exception.
