Brewers 10, Astros 1: Tonight's Turning Points

1) Aramis Ramirez's three-run home run in the third inning: +.148 WPA

Ramirez had three hits tonight and this was the big one, a long ball to expand the Brewer lead to 5-1.

2) Chris Snyder's solo home run in the third inning: -.103 WPA

The only blemish on Yovani Gallardo's ledger tonight was this home run to the Brewer bullpen in left to close the Brewer lead to 2-1.

3) Corey Hart's first inning double play: -.099 WPA

The Brewers had already plated one run in the first and had a chance for much more when Corey Hart came up with runners on the corners and one out, but he grounded into a double play to end the threat.

4) Aramis Ramirez's first inning RBI single: +.073 WPA

Ramirez drove in four of the Brewers' first five runs tonight and this was the first one, a single that brought home Norichika Aoki.

5) Yovani Gallardo's second inning RBI bunt single: +.060 WPA

Another day, another squeeze: This time it was Yovani Gallardo driving in Rickie Weeks and reaching first with a bunt single.

The next five:

6) Norichika Aoki's second inning double play: -.059 WPA
7) Carlos Gomez third inning double: +.056 WPA
8) Ryan Braun and Norichika Aoki steal second and third in the first inning: +.049 WPA
9) Martin Maldonado's second inning walk: +.047 WPA
10) Jordan Schafer's third inning walk: -.043 WPA
