Hey, look! A home series win! Who'd have thought it?

It didn't look too hopeful in the first, as the Brewers leadoff man scored without a hit, thanks to a walk, SB, ground-out and wild pitch. The D-backs then got a hit but didn't score, Michael Bourn being thrown out at the plate. Milwaukee doubled their advantage on a solo shot off Bradley in the third, and his day ended without him being able to get through the fifth inning. He took 116 pitches to work 4.2 frames, allowing three hits, three walks and three runs, all earned, though did strike out eight batters.

The offense took advantage of some very iffy visiting defense to score three times in the fourth, as the Brewers couldn't throw home or to first with any accuracy. They then broke things open with a five-run fifth inning, which saw two-run shots from both Jake Lamb (#24) and Phil Gosselin (#2), around an RBI triple from Chris Owings. That proved plenty as the bullpen had one of their better days, tossing 4.1 scoreless frames. Lamb had three hits, with Jean Segara, Rickie Weeks Jr and Chris Owings getting two apiece. Paul Goldschmidt had a pair of walks.
