Series Preview #17: Reviewing Brewer Wins Over The Dodgers In 2011

New, 3 comments

The Brewers are in Los Angeles to open up a four game set tonight, their only visit to LA in 2012 and their last meeting with the Dodgers this season. We've already talked to True Blue LA once in 2012, so it's time now for a look at our favorite Brewer/Dodger moments from 2011. The Brewers went 4-2 against our friends from Los Angeles last season.

1) Brewers turn a triple play, Randy Wolf pitches eight shutout innings on August 15

Wolf was anything but dominant on this day, allowing eleven baserunners (six hits and five walks) over eight innings. He worked with the Brewer defense to limit the damage, though, getting a triple play and four double plays in a 3-0 victory.

2) Mark Kotsay's walkoff single gives Brewers 2-1 win on August 16

The Brewers won again the next night, but it wasn't easy. They went to the bottom of the ninth tied at one before a Prince Fielder walk, Casey McGehee single and Yuniesky Betancourt walk set the plate for this Mark Kotsay moment:

3) Carlos Gomez takes away a home run from Juan Uribe on May 16

Shaun Marcum was very good on this day, pitching seven innings and allowing a run on five hits in the Brewers 2-1 victory. He did, however, get a little help from Carlos Gomez.

4) Jerry Hairston's two-run single gives the Brewers the lead for good on August 17

The Brewers held the Dodgers to just three total runs over their four wins against them in 2011. They won 3-1 on this day, and this clutch single from Jerry Hairston Jr. plated the deciding run.
