46-42: McGehee Shows Up....Finally

*Ryan Braun's MRI came back positive, or, no sign of major injury.  He will be out tomorrow's opener with the Reds.

Casey McGehee finally decide to show up to lead Milwaukee to a 3-1 win over the DBacks.  For the second time this season he provided the late game heroics by blasting a 3-run dinger in the bottom of the 7th that provided the go-ahead runs.  As you may remember, Casey did the same thing against the Cubs back in April (2-run blast).  This is a glimmer of hope that he can still turn it around, albeit he is batting .225 on the season and 5 homers.

Yovanni Gallardo FINALLY brought his "A" game by going 7 complete and giving up one run on a single mistake (home run to K Johnson, lead-off).  He settled in after that one mistake in the first inning and gave up only 4 hits, with only one of those hits for extra bases (double to Montero).  His pitch count even hit 123, which shows how hard he had to labor to complete the 7 innings. 

Odd--Milwaukee wore their old throwbacks today, which was Yo's call (according to 1250am Milwaukee).
