Win expectancy graph (hi, 6th inning!)

This game lived up to all predictions. Chris Narveson, as so many times before, had a curate's egg of a game. It all came apart in the 6th inning. Narveson's pitching was assisted by what our readers tell me were bad calls at first and the unusual routes Carlos Gomez takes to balls hit to center.

On the Brewers offensive end they lived up to their usual habits against Hamels. They barely hit him and half of what they did hit went out of the park. Hamels pitched a complete game in which he allowed only 6 baserunners.
