Norichika Aoki provided the majority of the Brewers' offense today. He couldn't get Randy Wolf the win after Francisco Rodriguez blew a hold by giving up a homer to Bryan LaHair, but he did get the team a win by hitting a walkoff solo home run in the bottom of the 10th off Casey Coleman.

Aoki hit his first home run of the day and his first home run of the season that left the confines of the field to lead off the bottom of the 4th inning against Matt Garza for the Crew's first hit of the game. 3/4 of today's runs were scored by Aoki. He scored on a Corey Hart ground-rule double in the 8th as well.

Randy Wolf had one of his best starts of 2012. He ran into trouble and his only run (unearned) given up of the day in the 7th. Wolf threw 6.2 innings on 117 pitches, striking out 6.
