Brewers Take Game 1

A six-run fifth inning by Milwaukee reversed momentum and flipped the lead.

I can't quite tell if LaRussa is defending his young pitcher or throwing him under the bus.

"[Garcia] started out the game just getting the ball up, paid for it, and after that, the delivery came together and I thought he pitched Hart pretty well and got a hopper in the hole," La Russa said. "Then he made three straight pitches right in the middle of the plate. They didn't miss any of them, just went like that."

Well, I'm leaning bus.

More here. The other game was -- wait for it -- delayed by rain. It is scheduled for tomorrow.
