Ryan Braun led off the bottom of the sixth with a double. Prince Fielder followed with a walk. With two on and no one out, the Brewers were set up for a big inning. They even had their #5 hitter up, Rickie Weeks, who hit 20 home runs and 26 doubles in 118 games during the regular season.
Weeks popped up a bunt for the first out. With Ian Kennedy looking like a mortal with imperfect control, Weeks bunted on the first pitch. Amazing.
This could have something -- a lot, even -- to do with the injury that Rob referenced below. If Weeks isn't feeling right, maybe he wanted to make sure that there was at least one positive outcome that came from his at-bat.
Or maybe he just wanted to set up Jerry Hairston and Yuniesky Betancourt, you laugh, but Hairston hit a line drive
for a double that scored two and Milwaukee is going crazy, they're going crazy, they're going crazy that should have been a double if not for one of the greatest catches you'll ever see.
Zoinks. It would have been even better if Betancourt didn't line an RBI single to center in the next at-bat. Ol' Yuni, coming through. Enjoy the sack of magic beans, Kansas City. Yuni's making his playoff mark.
And if Weeks got that bunt down, the Brewers might be up by two runs now. Shows what I know.
