Today's lessons include a big come-from-behind win, as well as an odd nomination for an award by the Brewers.

Yesterday's Results

Brewers 3, Cardinals 2

The game started off with a bunch of perfectly placed singles and Wily Peralta walking in a run. It looked like it was going to be another one of those games. However, Peralta locked out the Cardinals offense after the first inning, and the bullpen kept it out. Meanwhile, Gerardo Parra hit a home run to bring the Brewers within a run, and Matt Clark had a sacrifice fly to tie the game in the ninth. In the twelfth inning, Carlos Gomez drew a walk to get on base, stole second, and then stole third (both off of Yadier Molina, who normally doesn't allow that). With two outs, Hector Gomez hit a fly ball that fell just perfectly for a single to put the Brewers up 3-2. Francisco Rodriguez came in for the save, gave us a scare on a long fly ball from Jhonny Peralta, but kept the Cardinals off the board for the win.
