Brewers 5, Pirates 1: Turning Points

1) Garrett Jones' homers in the fourth inning (-.129 WPA)

The only Pirates run of the evening tied the game at one apiece, just before the Brewers opened it up in the bottom half of the inning. This was the only mark against Marcum, who was fantastic today.

2) Rickie Weeks doubles in the fourth inning (.124 WPA)

Weeks set up the big fourth inning with a double that moved Aramis Ramirez to third base. Weeks had an excellent game today, reaching base in all four of his plate appearances and stealing two bases.

3) Brooks Conrad hits a home run in the fourth inning (.102 WPA)

After #4, Conrad hit a home run to drive in Cody Ransom, giving the Brewers a 5-1 lead that would hold the rest of the game.

4) Cody Ransom's RBI single in the fourth inning (.090 WPA)

Ransom drove in both Rickie Weeks and Aramis Ramirez after Weeks doubled in the fourth. This play broke the 1-1 tie and gave Milwaukee a 3-1 advantage.

5) Cody Ransom walks in the second inning (.075 WPA)

After an Aramis Ramirez double and Rickie Weeks walk, Ransom's walk loaded the bases and set up Brooks Conrad for a sacrifice fly to score the first run of the game.
