Well, this isn't going quite as the Brewers planned. With the future of their powerful offensive core in doubt after this season, Milwaukee traded all sorts of baubles and trinkets to get Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum for this year. And in the regular season, it worked beautifully. So far in the postseason, they might have rather had Lorenzo Cain pitch a few innings.
Rafael Furcal led off the top of the fifth with a double -- a line shot to right-center on a 2-0 fastball. Greinke was in trouble again, but a great play from Prince Fielder kept Furcal from scoring
Purty. The line drive did move Furcal to third with one out, bringing up Albert Pujols, but Greinke struck Pujols out with a curveball in the dirt.
With two outs, though, Lance Berkman singled home Furcal for the Cardinals' fifth run of the game. As far as discouraging runs go, this was close to the discouragingest.
