Every now and then, everything seems to go right. Even the worst baseball teams have days where the bats are going, the pitching is great and everything is humming along.
That was the Brewers today, as the offense and pitching both synced up to give Milwaukee one of their strongest wins of the season. They were led today by Matt Garza, who has had a dreadful season to-date. Today, though, that didn't matter. Today, Garza was an ace as he tossed seven innings of two-hit ball while walking two and striking out five. The only run against him was a Melvin Upton solo homer.
Garza wasn't the only one with a great performance, though. On the offensive side, Khris Davis had maybe his best game of the year. Davis hit two three-run home runs in this game and also picked up a single en route to a three-hit, six RBI game.
Adam Lind also had a great game, going 3-4 with a double, a walk, two runs scored, and three RBI. Ryan Braun reached base three times. Hector Perez and Martin Maldonado each had a pair of hits. The only Brewers starter who didn't have a hit today was Garza.
Sometimes everything just happens to go right. It hasn't happened often to the Brewers in 2015, but it's always nice when it does.
Up next, the Brewers head back to reality. A series with the Cardinals in Miller park awaits with first pitch slated for 7:10 CT Friday.
