Kyle Lohse pitched a complete game shutout, but most people are going to forget that because Carlos Gomez got into it with several Braves in the first inning after hitting a home run. The coverage of that is all over the place on SBN and everywhere else (and besides that I was listening to the game on the radio at the time, I suppose I could go back and look but I can't be bothered) but the short story is that Gomez got ejected, Brian McCann, despite blocking Gomez's progress to home, was not, and the solo home run was the only run the Brewers really needed despite tacking on a few more. The drama in the 1st seemed to last longer than the rest of the game.

Norichika Aoki, Yuniesky Betancourt and Scooter Gennett had multiple hits in this game. Aoki drove in two runs tonight.

This was Lohse's second complete game of the season and the fourth for the Brewers in 2013. Wily Peralta pitched the other two. That's four more than last year.

I hear there's a game tomorrow evening at 6:10 against the same lotMets, thank goodness. Johnny Hellweg vs Dillon Gee. Get excited!!!!!!
