The Brewers clinched at least a .500 season (yay!) behind a dominating performance from Kyle Lohse tonight. He allowed only 2 hits and no walks, throwing a 106 pitch shutout. And they managed to get Milwaukee 5 burgers for 5 bucks at George Webb's for the 3rd time in September.

The Brewers got runs in the 4th and 5th on a single by Rickie Weeks and a double by Carlos Gomez. In the 8th inning mentioned above, the Brewers had a huge rally in which Jean Segura drove in Weeks in and Gerardo Parra, and then Lohse brought home Segura on a sacrifice fly.

After the Dodgers/Giants game later tonight, the Brewers might be eliminated, and they might not. But it was an encouraging game in a month that hasn't had many of them.
