Nice to see the Brewers finally able to scrap together a couple of runs today, even if it took a leadoff double from Yovani Gallardo and a broken bat blooper from Ryan Braun to get on the board. Here's what's been going on elsewhere in the division over the past week:
Red Reporter: It Would Be an Historic Event If the Reds Blew this Lead
I know quite a few fans in Cincinnati (well, the 12 of them that bother going to Great American Ballpark) are worried about the Reds possibly blowing their big lead over the Cardinals. I know it's only natural after so many years of losing, but it's important to remember just how rare it would be if it did happen. Then again, the most recent incident was last year, when Detroit blew a 6.5 game lead with 24 to play, ultimately losing to the Twins in Game 163. It'd still be a collapse of epic proportions if they're not in the playoffs, though, and the Reds probably have the Brewers to thank for that one. So you're welcome, Cincinnati.
