Sometimes everything just lines up for a team. That was the story of the game tonight. The Brewers got the offense going early tonight. Norichika Aoki started the game with a walk then Jonathan Lucroy hit a double to get Aoki to third. After Ramirez was it by a pitch Carlos Gomez singled in two runs to give the Brewers a 2-0 lead. Gomez would record another RBI in the third inning as Jean Segura scored on a single and Gomez drove in another two runs in the seventh inning on his third single of the night. In total Gomez had 5 RBI on the night and drove in all of the Brewers runs. That would have been the story of the night had Kyle Lohse not had his great night.

Tyler Thornburg having more success in MLB than Triple A

Many have tried without much luck to point to a reason why Tyler Thornburg has quickly gone from a struggling Triple-A pitcher to a consistent major-league starting pitcher.

Thornburg continued the trend Thursday by allowing two runs over six innings to...

Brewers drop Cards into tie for 1st
