Not a Good Night

Missed the game last night because I was attended The Hold Steady concert in Madison, and I'm not too upset that I didn't watch this one. This was one of those classic Brewers heartbreakers, as Trevor Hoffman blew a save in the 9th inning and then Carlos Villanueva blew it wide open after that, giving up six runs in the tenth. Yikes.

The Brewers and the Dodgers went back and forth for awhile in this one, trading runs, many of which were off the longball. Five Dodgers homered against the Brewers last night, while Mat Gamel and J.J. Hardy each hit one out of the park as well. But it was the Matt Kemp grand slam that ultimately ended this one, as the Dodgers took game one by the score of 12-8.

The Brewers absolutely need a couple of days off right now. You were hoping that this would be a good stretch of games for us towards the break, as the Brewers haven't been further than Chicago since June 23rd. But this last week as been a struggle, losing series to the rival Cubs and Cardinals, and now down early against the Dodgers. After being in first place in the division just over a week ago, Milwaukee is now three games out and four games back of San Fran for the Wild Card. Pretty annoying.

Not as annoying though as waking up in Madison this morning to see that my car was broken into. Goodbye GPS, goodbye iPod adapter, goodbye suitcase with some of my favorite clothes, and my underwear. Seriously, who steals underwear? How mad am I about this? Very mad, as in very mad they just didn't take the entire car. Seriously, if you're going to run off with some dirty underwear you might as well just take my lemon of a car while you're at it and put me out of my misery.

Player of the Game: Mat Gamel, for hitting the go-ahead but not quite game winning home run in the 8th inning.

I threw his little brother off the thirty-second floor of Nakatomi Towers out in L.A. I guess he's a little pissed off about it.
