Game 144: Brewers 6 Pirates 1

To continue a theme from the gamethread:

Yovani Gallardo: 6 IP, 6 H, 7 K, 3 BB, 0R
Brian Bullington: 5 IP, 7 H, 2 K, 1 BB, 3 R, 3 ER

Granted, this was a much better outing for Bullington than his last one. He's just not going to be a dynamic starter like a guy like Gallardo is. No one ever said he should be, but this is the guy that Ed Creech and Dave Littlefield decided was worthy of the first pick in the draft. That was the problem under the old regime. Hopefully we'll see a change.

Not much else to say about this one. LaRoche was the only Pirate with two hits and it's actually possible he'll finish the year up at .280. That would be impressive. The Brewers win ensures vaults them back into first place (the Cubs just lost in 11 to Houston). That means the Pirates can beat a first place team again tomorrow.
