The Brewers came back from a big deficit in Game 1 of the NLCS, so being down 2-0 probably isn't a big deal to a team with their kind of firepower. The problem with that firepower, though, is that it isn't distributed evenly. After the Braun/Fielder/Weeks troika, the hitters start to get a little pedestrian.
So when the Brewers are getting things from that bottom of the order -- as they have been for a lot of the postseason -- it's especially frustrating when they don't cash in. With one out, Jerry Hairston and Yuniesky Betancourt, who have been Paul Molitor and Robin Yount so far in the playoffs, hit back-to-back singles.
Jonathan Lucroy worked the count 3-1 before swinging at ball four against Edwin Jackson. He eventually flew out to right field, which brought up Shaun Marcum. Fans of the American League are laughing at us purists right now, but Marcum worked a five-pitch at-bat against Jackson! We get very excited about that sort of thing.
Besides, it just would have been Casey McGehee DH'ing. Don't act so cocky.
