The Milwaukee Brewers managed to give a clear answer to the question about their somewhat shaky defense during the playoff race. Randy Wolf stepped up and managed to toss up eight great innings in the NL Central as he lead the Brewers into a triple play and four double plays in a great 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers later on Monday night.

After the game Wolf said “The best thing a team can do is each part of the game that might be lacking that day, pick that part up. We did a great job today. I got in a jam a couple of times … and they made great plays behind me,”
All three Corey Hart, Jonathan Lucroy and Ryan Braun have homered for Milwaukee which has now won 17 of the 19 games they have played and have gotten a six game lead over the second place St. Louis after it was the Cardinals who lost 6-2. Betting lines
Wolf said “If we’re pitching well, we’re scoring just enough to win, if we happen to not pitch that well, we’re scoring a lot of runs. That’s what good teams do,” “This is the team we’ve been waiting to have now for a good part of the first half. Lately we’ve been playing the kind of games we know we can.”
Milwaukee threw out two runners at home, including one on the triple play. Sports scores
Milwaukee had thrown out two of their runners at home which also included a single triple play. Then in the second it was James Loney who hit a grounder which was followed up by Josh Wilsongrabbed who hit up the middle as he flipped the ball out of his glove over to the shortstop Yunieski Betancourt.
Kottaras said “You never really plan on those things happening,”. “It was really amazing.”
Fielder had said that he was feeling some good vibes which made him think that something special was in store for the Brewers.
Fielder said “You don’t want to get too far ahead,” “Some of the things that we’ve been able to do, it seems like, `Wow, things are just working out right.’ You’ve got to be thankful for it.” This is definitely a big plus for Fielder.
