Brewers Even NLCS as Wolf Gets Monkey Off Back: The Milwaukee Brewers tied the National League Championship Series at two games apiece with a 4-2 comeback victory on the road over the St. Louis Cardinals. Pitcher Randy Wolf gave up two earned runs over seven innings to earn the victory and escapes his fate as the active pitcher with the most career wins without a win in the postseason. Ted Lilly now tops that list at 342 starts, followed by the pitcher Wolf beat in game 4, Kyle Lohse, with 298. Ryan Braun had two hits and an RBI for the Brewers.

I guess this is the place where I admit I was wrong. I came into that game braced for the Crew to get blown out, and was happy for about ten minutes after they won before remembering they still have to beat the Cardinals two more times.

It's really hard for me to get used to the feeling of this team winning games.

The Cardinals will have to win in Milwaukee. If Greinke can get his mind right or the offense gets rolling tonight then the Cardinals will have to win two in Milwaukee. That was a huge win. I'm not terribly optimistic that they will win this yet but yesterday I had resigned myself to the idea that they were pretty much dead, so it seems so much sunnier today.
