Brewers vs. Cardinals: We Have Scorelessness

As one might figure from the 9-4 score, this has been something of a slugfest. There were runs scored in each of the first five half-innings. But that 9-4 score has remained 9-4 now through a full inning of play, which seems worthy of note.

Behind in the bottom of the third, the Brewers went down 1-2-3 against new reliever Fernando Salas. Salas' entry, by the way, means that the Cardinals have gone six games in a row now without a starter pitching in the sixth. Salas made easy work of Nyjer Morgan and Ryan Braun, then nearly allowed a home run to Prince Fielder, which would've blended in with the pattern of the whole thing. Fielder launched a changeup to deep center, but Jon Jay made the catch right up against the wall.

Then in the top of the fourth, LaTroy Hawkins walked Jay to lead off. However, Albert Pujols fouled out, and then Lance Berkman hit a low liner right to Rickie Weeks with Jay on the move. Weeks made the catch and threw to first for the double play, and the inning was over.

So it was 9-4 after two and a half, and it's 9-4 after three and a half. It's good to have a little sanity.
