Fangraphs Win Expectancy Graph

Well, I was right.  Ryan Vogelsong's regression began tonight.  His ERA jumped a whole .08 after giving up two earned runs in five innings.  Randy Wolf gave up three runs, though, and that was all the difference needed in this one.  Kameron Loe also gave up a run (surprise, surprise) in one third of an inning, but the Brewers offense just couldn't get much going today. 

Milwaukee's first run came on a Ryan Braun home run in the fourth while their second came on a Nyjer Morgan double in the fifth inning, scoring Corey Hart who reached via a triple. 

Rickie Weeks may have had the best offensive game, though, going 2-3 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base.  He did get thrown out at home by Giants outfielder Cody Ross, though. 

The Brewers and Giants play one more tomorrow afternoon.
