And the Cubs Cards and Marlins for that matter.
What can you say the biggest pitcher on the Brewers staff comes up big once again. Seth McClung wins his 3rd game in his last 4 starts. Be honest none of you thought McClung would be the shot in the arm the starting line needed when he was inserted into it.
What was also nice was seeing the Crew win a close low scoring game after losing the shoot out on Friday.
They go back to 6 over .500 and lose no ground on the division leading Cubs who are pretty damn good inside that dump they play in and the Cards who are surprisingly handing the Red Soxs an ass whooping. Both the Cards and Cubs are going for sweeps today so there is a good chance both will lose, we all know how hard it is to sweep in this league that means if the Crew can TCB today and win their series they will gain a game on both teams. And looking ahead the Cubs have to leave the Dump and head to the Cell to play a White Soxs team that will most likely be pretty fired up after this series.
Now that they are back above .500 by more than a game or two it is time to get back into win every series mode. we are about to enter the long July through August grind that comes every baseball season, and if they can grind 2 out of every 3 games they will be looking down at the Cards and Cubs by September.
I stayed true to my vow yesterday I did not watch one minute of the game on WMLW and I will not watch a minute the rest of the season I will listen to the radio on the nights they are on that joke of a station.
So is everyone ready to panic? Russell Branyan has not hit a home run in the last two game oh my god he is starting to slump ;) lol
Rickie Weeks returns to the line up today lets see if the time off helped his eye at the plate. To be honest did anyone miss Rickie? Other than the injury to Yo the Brewers seem to be shrugging off every injury they have had someone has stepped up and filled the void. Actually with the way McClung has been pitching they have even picked a lot of the Gallardo slack. And the Gagne injury has made the team so much better I am scared to death that he will come back and mess the team up.
So on to today's game and the drive to 7 games over .500
Parra vs. Olson at baseball will be played under bright blue skies Miller Park.
First pitch is at 1:05pm CDT
TV: FSN | RADIO: WTMJ 620/BRN
It is simple they have to win to win the series and give themselves a 6-3 home stand which could have easily have been 7-2 or 8-1 with a little luck.
Parra has been pitching very well of late and hopefully he will keep it going tonight. The Crew was pretty quiet yesterday at the plate lets hope that with the roof and panels open today the ball is jumping off the Brewers bats. Lets bash out a big lead and let Manny cruise to victory number 6.
And lets root for wins by the White Sox, Red Soxs and Oakland today.
The Brewers have to run the Cubs down just so we can shut up this disgusting never ending rim job that the Four Letter Network is giving the Cubs. Someone anyone has to stop them be it us or the Cards no Cubs in the playoffs I cannot take what ESPN turn a Cubs playoff run into.
So everyone enjoy Brewers baseball today
