Brewers 3, Braves 2

on .

The Brewers edged the Braves in a pitching duel to take the 1st game of this 3 game series. Chris Capuano got the win and Derrick Turnbow got the save. Davies (1-2) pitched well again. Going into the 7th inning, he had allowed 1 run on 2 hits, but had thrown 99 pitches. I think Bobby should have taken the 22 year old out, but left him in. (That's only the first time this year that I can remember not liking Bobby's in-game decision.) 2 batters into the 7th, Corey Koskie homered. Davies ended up pitching 7 innings, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits, a walk, and 7 strikeouts. He threw 116 pitches. Villarreal pitched a scoreless 8th. The Braves took a 1-0 lead after Marcus Giles, in his return to the lineup, hit a leadoff triple. One out later, Matt Diaz hit a groundball to score him. The Brewers tied the game in the 4th on a double steal when Geoff Jenkins stole home on a strikeout. The score remained 1-1 until Koskie's 2 run homer in the 7th. The Braves loaded the bases with no outs in the 8th, but only got one run when Diaz hit into a double play. (Diaz is really struggling in the regular season, batting just .200. Francoeur also continues to struggle and is mired in a slump.) Offensive contributor: Marcus Giles was 1-3 with a triple, walked, and scored. Tomorrow, Chipper and Renteria should return to the lineup, and that will strengthen the offense. Hudson will pitch against Tomo Ohka tomorrow. The good news is that we have 4 starters pitching well now, and if we get some offense with the starting infield back we should start winning games.
