Quote of the Night:
"Everybody feels better about themselves after a game like this. It's a special night, one of those nights you have to enjoy. They don't come around very often."
-- Brewers All-Star Ryan Braun on his team's dramatic come-from-behind win in Clevceland on Monday.
Brewers 14, Indians 12
There are slugfests, and then there is Milwaukee's Monday night victory over the Indians. The slamathon was capped by Prince Fielder's first career grand slam, which Cleveland fans conveniently tossed back into the Brewers' bullpen, allowing him to hold on to it. Fielder finished with 6 total RBI and Milwaukee kept pace atop the NL Central with a win that, in all reality, they probably didn't deserve. Something tells us that Trevor Hoffman -- who earned his 16th save -- and co. will take it nonetheless.
Angels 9, Giants 7
The good news for San Francisco fans: The Giants found a way to plate seven on Monday night. The bad news? They let in nine runs, with eight of them coming off lefty curveballer Barry Zito, whose comeback trail was distinctly derailed by Anaheim's seven-run fourth inning. That barrage was keyed by back-to-back homers from Erick Aybar and Bobby Abreu, and it helped get John Lackey a win for the first time in five starts.
