The Brewers have made a bunch of defensive changes with Carlos Gomez coming in to play centerfield, Nyjer Morgan moving to right and Craig Counsel replacing Rickie Weeks at second base. But Randy Wolf remains on the mound and he struck out Nick Punto after initially falling behind 3-1. Rafael Furcal, hit another lazy fly ball and didn't run out of the box, assuming that it was going to go foul... Which it didn't. I guess he is saving himself for something... Allen Craig hit a 40-foot grounder to end the inning with absolutely no harm done.
I hope the Cardinals are satisfied that now they have painted themselves into a corner against the Brewers' twin closers.
