Brewers 6, Dodgers 3: Tonight's Turning Points

1) Carlos Gomez's fourth inning two-run single: +.179 WPA (Video)

Hours upon hours ago, the Brewers trailed 1-0 in this game. They loaded the bases with one out against Clayton Kershaw in the fourth, though, and Carlos Gomez gave them their first lead with this single through the left side.

2) Tony Gwynn Jr's seventh inning double play: +.148 WPA

The Brewers found themselves in a major jam in the seventh inning, allowing four straight hits and bringing the go-ahead run to the plate with none out. Manny Parra worked out of the jam, though, getting a strikeout and this ground ball to end the threat and maintain a 5-3 lead.

3) Elian Herrera's two run single in the seventh: -.137 WPA (Video)

The two Dodger runs that scored in the seventh both came on this play and dropped the Brewer lead from 5-1 to 5-3 with no one out in the seventh.

4) Andre Ethier's first inning RBI double: -.123 WPA (Video)

The Dodgers had Yovani Gallardo on the ropes early tonight, forcing him to throw 35 pitches to record his first three outs. He only allowed one run in the inning, though, and it came on this double.

5) James Loney's seventh inning strikeout: +.098 WPA

Loney was just trying to bunt to advance the runners to second and third in this plate appearance with no one out and two runs in, but Manny Parra struck him out.

The next five:
