Milwaukee Brewers lefty Randy Wolf avenged a poor start in game 4 of the
NLDS by pitching 7 solid innings in last night’s 4-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s the first post season victory for the 35-year-old Wolf. It ties the series at 2-2 and it guarantees that the series now must return to Milwaukee for a game 6, regardless of the outcome of tonight’s game 5.
Wolf did serve up a pair of early solo home runs to the Cardinals, but he admitted that he never got rattled.
Francisco Rodriguez worked a the 8th and John Axford came on to earn the save in the 9th.
What a difference a day makes. Down 2 to 1, there was a gloomy picture being painted concerning the Brewers chances. But being tied 2-2 instead of down
3-1 is monumental.
Game 5 is tonight. Zach Greinke (1-0, 8.18 ERA) faces Jaime Garcia (0-2, 7.36) in the pitching matchup.
