Brewers Score Again, Hold 2-0 Lead Through Six Innings

You know the old saying: "When Yuniesky Betancourt hits a triple, a Jonathan Lucroy RBI can't be far behind."

The Brewers and Diamondbacks are still locked in a pitchers' duel, but the Brewers took a 2-0 advantage when Betancourt tripled with two outs and Lucroy singled him home with a bloop. There's a lot of tomfoolery that can happen in a 1-0 game, and I feel safe in classifying a Betancourt triple as tomfoolery.

Yovani Gallardo and Ian Kennedy have both been effective, but Gallardo has been more dominant. Kennedy has had lapses of control at times, hitting two batters and leaving some pitches in the zone. Gallardo hasn't had any such problems since the first.

And now ...

... there are ...

... shadows with which to contend!!!!! Right on the field! Shadows! Maybe the announcers should bring that up. It probably makes for tough hitting conditions.

Three innings left for the Diamondbacks to do something. With Gallardo looking this good -- and the shadows! -- it could be tough for Arizona to score.
