Each team scored in the first inning, and then bupkis. Ryan Dempster had a quality start (the bare minimum kind), and a few of the bats had solid games. Jeff Samardzija rebounded nicely, striking out the side in his inning of work. Aramis Ramirez went deep again.
But, as has been true in the macrocosm of the 2011 season, the Brewers were better.
