Greinke leads Brewers to another home win

When Zach Greinke takes the mound at Miller Park, a victory for the

Zach Greinke

Milwaukee Brewers is a sure thing.

The Brewers knocked off the Dodgers 3-2 in 10-innings last night.  The Brewers have captured the first two games in the series to cool off the Dodgers.

Greinke wasn’t around for the decision.  The win went to Kameron Loe out of the bullpen.  But Greinke pitched 7-solid innings, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits, striking out 7 and walking only 2.

How good has Greinke been at home for the Brewers?  Since coming to Milwaukee, the Brewers are now 17-0 when Greinke starts a game at Miller Park.

Nyjer Morgan scored the winning run on Ryan Braun’s shallow fly ball.  Morgan was being held by third base coach Ed Sedar, but he went through the stop sign and scored on a close play at the plate.  Replay showed Morgan should have been called out, but the Brewers caught a break and earned the
3-2 ten-inning victory.

Aramis Ramirez homered in the win, his first Miller Park home run as a member of the Brewers.

The Brewers have won 47 consecutive games when taking the lead into the eighth inning.  They haven’t lost in that scenario since July 4 of last season.

The Brewers will go for the sweep this afternoon.  Randy Wolf pitches for the Brewers against the Dodgers Aaron Harang.  12:10 is the first pitch time.
