Game 26: Brewers 10 Pirates 4

I want to say that nothing went right in this game, but that's not true in the strictest sense. The Pirates took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning and then nothing went right from there. Wandy Rodriguez couldn't find the strike zone in the first inning and when he had a chance to get out of the inning with the Pirates still only down 2-1, Clint Barmes booted a double play ball and by the time the inning finally ended, it was 5-1 Brewers. 

Given the way the Pirates have scored runs lately, that didn't necessarily seem like the worst thing in the world. Rodriguez seemed to settle down and the Pirates got a second run and then Yovani Gallardo and Norichika Aoki hit back-to-back homers and pretty soon Jonathan Sanchez was in the game and that was that. 

Let's try again tomorrow.
