Fangraphs Win Expectancy Graph

In the first inning the Diamondbacks and Brewers both scored a run. In the third inning, the Diamondbacks and Brewers each scored two runs. In the fifth inning, the Diamondbacks and Brewers both scored one run.

In the eighth, the Diamondbacks scored one run. In the ninth, they scored two runs. In the ninth, the Brewers scored one run. After matching Arizona run-for-run through the first seven innings, Milwaukee failed to keep up as the game progressed. Though they tried in the ninth, the Brewers fell just short.

The Brewers never really threatened in the ninth, either, despite scoring a run. Gerardo Parra led off with a double and scored via small ball, but eventually with two outs and the bases empty, Aramis Ramirez flew out to end the game.

Adam Lind, who has had a slow May, went 3-3 with a two run homer and three RBi. Ryan Braun and Parra were both 2-4 while Braun also walked. Carlos Gomez homered. Jean Segura doubled in his return to the lineup. The offense did alright, but Jimmy Nelson and the pitching staff couldn't quite keep up.

The Brewers and Diamondbacks will go one more tomorrow, with first pitch scheduled for 3:10 CT.
