Yesterday's Results

Brewers 10, Padres 1

If you needed to get to sleep early last night, the Brewers were kind to you. They took an early lead and just kept building on it. It looked rough early as Kyle Lohse struggled through the first two innings, giving up a run, but settled down to pitch six solid innings. Meanwhile, Carlos Gomez, Ryan Braun, and Aramis Ramirez each had three hits, and Ramirez and Gerardo Parra each had three RBI.
