2011-10-01 Diamondbacks (Kennedy) at Brewers (Gallardo) - Brewers win, 4-1; Lead Series 1-0]



Ian Kennedy

Kennedy, a 21-game winner and a major part of the D-backs' success, is expected to take the ball in Game 1 in what will be his postseason debut. He went at least seven innings 20 times in 33 starts this season and allowed one run or fewer in 16.

Yovani Gallardo

Gallardo will start his second Game 1 in three years, but the circumstances are vastly different. He was one start removed from knee surgery in 2008 when he took the mound in Philadelphia and gutted through four innings.

Thank you Ron for doing the sensical thing and starting Hairston. Between Greinke tomorrow and Hairston tonight, he's starting off the playoffs on the right foot in my mind.

Get this done today, Brewers. Put together some good at bats, play good defense, and get some runs! I'm excited to see what the atmosphere at the ballpark will be. Ahhhh, gotta go!!

I am so amped! Can't wait for the game. Kennedy is tough so I hope the bats do not go silent. Hopefully Yo keeps his string of good outings going. I'm gonna predict 4-2 Brewers.


EDIT: Love JHJ at 3rd better bat and better glove than Casey. Glad RRR realizes he has to approach the playoffs differently.

To everyone who is going to the game, have a great time and make a TON of noise for us who can't make it to the game.


It only took until game 1 of the playoffs, but people are actually complimenting the lineup. I'll admit that I thought RR might have started McGehee today, so nice work!


Get some runs early!!!!

I like this lineup, too. Of course I wish Green would've gotten more of a chance a month or so again and maybe if he did we'd be doing Hairston SS / Green 3B here... but I'll gladly take this. Heading to the park now. Enjoy this, everyone. Go Crew!

I'm going to be in a church for a wedding for the majority of the game, terrible planning. That said, I'll be able to pray for the crew for a few hours. I'm really worried that our bats won't show up and we will be swept, But would love to be proved wrong. We need Hart or Weeks to have a big game.


I love Yuni in the 7 hole


Spool nervous.

Chat was down for a while, but it's back up now.


I don't like Yuni in any hole, but number seven is a better choice than most of the other holes.

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.

It seems that three of the four guys on TBS's pregame show are murdering the pronunciation of Yovani Gallardo's name in one way or another. One is even pronouncing the "LL" as an "L."
