– It was 11-5 after seven.
— That’s when the Marlins scored SIX RUNS in the top of the eighth, to tie the game.
—- This included Scott Cousins, hitting .206/.206/.353 with no home runs coming into today, hitting a home run off Francisco Rodriguez.
—– In the top of the tenth, Jose Reyes hit a solo home run – only his third of the year – to put the Marlins ahead.
—— With one on and two out in the bottom of the inning, though, Aramis Ramirez homered to save the Brewers from a very embarrassing loss.
——- It’s the four year anniversary of this game. Apparently July 3 is a bad day to be a Brewers reliever. They didn’t even get an out!!
Chipper Jones went 5-for-5.
- In the sixth inning of CHC/ATL, the Cubs walked six! Even for the Cubs, that’s impressive.

— This after giving up nine hits in 6.2 innings and thirteen hits over six innings in his last two starts.
