Key Milwaukee Brewers Series Against St. Louis

Yovani Gallardo had one bad inning, and that was all it took for St. Louis to win the first game of this crucial series. It looked like Adam Wainwright was not suffering from his previous outing. In the prior game, he threw over 120 pitches. Wainwright had his wicked curve ball dialed in perfectly last night. Brewers batters could not lay off that pitch.

With the bases loaded in the second inning, Mike Cameron was hit by the ball as Kendall's lofty chopper drifted towards the St. Louis shortstop. That play could have scored a run for Milwaukee, but it was not to be.

The Milwaukee Brewers didn't get any help from the umpire in last night's contest. Dale Sveum and Willie Randolph were both ejected by the third inning. Bill Hohn called Gallardo's check swing a strike, and Pujol's check swing a ball. When looking at the reply, the only difference between swings was that Gallardo had a slower recoil when compared to Pujols. Miller Park fans were justifiably angry with Hohn.

Game two will feature Jeff Suppan for Milwaukee and Wellenmeyer for St. Louis. Suppan needs a to turn his performance around in short order. He has not had a win since June 12th, and continues to struggle on the mound.
