It was finally dinner! Right now, apparently, the corn is the best in Wisconsin so everyone had an ear of delicious corn. What was with that was a hamburger, a hot dog, or a bratwurst. I tried a little piece of a bratwurst and I thought it was okay. I chose a hamburger though. There was also a choice of a few fruits that could go with it. After dinner, and some more tackling, we started out for the Brewers game. Sara and Maya stayed at the house with Grandma. The gang for the game was Matt (Kristen’s husband), Kristen, Noah, Jana, Kevin, Darren, and Tom. Our seats were in the second deck right behind home plate. They were awesome seats. The pitchers for each team were Ian Kennedy for Arizona, and Chris Narveson for Milwaukee. Ryan Braun and Corey Hart weren’t in the starting lineup. The game started out quick with Arizona scoring in the top of the 1st with only one man out. In the bottom of the 1st, Prince Fielder knocked in Craig Counsell and it was tied up. There was nothing in the top of the 2nd but in the bottom of the 2nd, Cain scored on a wild pitch
We went to the kid’s zone out in right field. Matt stayed in the seats to watch the game (this will be important to know coming up). First we did the racing sausages, you pedaled bike pedals against other kids and the faster you pedaled, the faster your sausage went. We missed the fifth inning doing that but nobody scored. There was a nice catch in left-center field by Joe Inglett. The top of the sixth was devoted to a cage where you pitch and it shows your speed on the radar gun. Noah hit 40, I had 45, and Darren had 48! We raced down the baseline against Corey Hart in the bottom of the sixth. They did Miller Park’s famous Racing Sausages in the middle of the sixth instead of during the seventh inning stretch. We sort of got to see them go. We were in line for the racing when Kristen heard them announce it. We got to see most of the race and we saw Bratwurst win. We raced against Corey Hart after watching the running beef. Normally a fake Corey Hart would zip across a runway to the base. It didn’t when we were there. We all beat Corey Hart’s time though.
Arizona scored on a string of hits in the top of the 6th to make it a 4-3 game. In the top of the seventh, we started heading back to our seats. On the TV when we started back, we saw Cain make a great catch in deep left-center field
No one scored in the 7th or the 8th. In the ninth, the Brewers brought in John Axford to try to close it out in the 9th but he let up a run on two hits and a walk. It was tied up and it went into extra innings. In the top of the 10th, Trevor Hoffman came in and he gave up three runs after he got the first out of the inning. In the bottom of the 10th, it was bases loaded with no one out and Casey McGehee was up. He got out. Cain struck out. Bases loaded with two out and Joe Inglett grounded out to end the game. It was a great game but the Brewers lost in ten innings 7-4. That was game one of a four game series and game four was going to be on the same day that Boston and Toronto play. I hope that Boston wins in that game. We got back and Mom and Darren slept inside the house and Dad and I slept in the RV.
