Not a hang with 'em tonight. The Brewers overcome the curse of yet another person blogging about them with a victory.
The name of my blog comes from my favorite baseball saying--hang with 'em. I once heard Astros announcer Jim Deshaies describe Harvey Haddix's loss after taking a perfect game into the 13th inning as the ultimate hang with 'em. It's hard to argue with that. Brewers announcer Bill Schroeder typically uses it to describe a well-hit ball that either becomes an out because it was hit right at a fielder or because of an outstanding defensive play. JJ Hardy had a lot of hang with 'ems before the Brewers sent him to Triple A last year.
As for the game, Yovani Gallardo pitched another great game and the Brewers came back from an early deficit to win. Trailing 2-1 in the 7th, Gallardo belted a homerun over the leftfield wall to tie it up. Prince and George Kottaras also homered. After some less than stellar pitching by Carlos Villanueva, John Axford got the last 5 outs for the save.
Brewers 7, Marlins 4
