Milwaukee vs. Pittsburgh, 2 October 2005: Last Game Thread of the Year

Well, barring an unprecedented series of accidents involving every member of every other National League team except the Rockies, that is.

Rick Helling (3-1, 2.39) vs. Zach Duke (7-2, 1.85).Yes, that Rick Helling, and yes, he's gotten that ERA honestly, striking out 42 batters in 49 innings and walking 18 while allowing just two homers. No, I don't know how he's doing it.

Brewer watch: After yesterday's loss, they're 81-80. How deeply ironic would it be if the Brewers were denied their first winning season in over a decade because they couldn't take two of three from the freaking Pirates on the last weekend of the season?
