During the season, the Brewers and Diamondbacks might have played a game for the ages, two offenses struggling to score into the night until one finally breaks through. Instead, today we got a nine inning scoreless tie.
Yovani Gallardo pitched 4.2 shutout innings today, but each frame was an adventure. He allowed seven hits and a walk and had runners in scoring position in each full inning, including situations with a runner on second and none out in the second and fourth. He struck out three batters and left one man on for Tim Dillard in the fifth, who got Lyle Overbay to ground out to end the threat.
Nyjer Morgan entered yesterday's game with five hits all spring. He has four since, with a pair of doubles yesterday and a single and a double today. Unfortunately, his teammates combined for just three more hits.
12,579 fans paid to see today's game, setting a new attendance record at Salt River Fields. The Brewers are off tomorrow but will get another chance to not score in front of a large crowd on Friday when they host half of the Angels back in Maryvale.
