Brewers Move One Run Closer, Still Trail 5-2

Randy Wolf wasn't very good in the first inning, and he dug a pretty big hole for the Brewers, who started the second inning behind 5-1.

But Yuniesky Betancourt led off the inning with a double -- don't laugh, he hit 27 this year, including two off Charlie Morton, who is just like Roy Hallday now! A deep fly out from Carlos Gomez allowed Betancourt to tag, and George Kottaras drove in the runner with a weak fielder's choice.

The Diamondbacks are still in command of the game, but something I like to do is play "Is it a headline?" Is it a headline that Randy Wolf got tagged for five earned runs? Nope. Surprising, maybe, but it's not going to lead the sports section of the New York Times.

In that vein, "Joe Saunders Coughs Up Three-Run Lead" wouldn't even make the front page of Joe Saunders Quarterly. There's still a lot of baseball left. Some of it might even be well-pitched!
