Sheets gets the road trip off to a great start
Last night Ben Sheets made getting a hit off of him harder than finding a Pepsi in Atlanta you can find the but it isn't easy. He spread 4 hits and one earned run over a 9 inning complete game. Right now please tell me who should be the starting pitcher in the All Star if it is not Big Ben?
It was a nice start to the road trip giving them the chance to lock the series up tonight with a win. The only thing that was not great last night was the fact that they got a runner to 3rd a couple of time with less than one out and they did not get the run across. That is something they will have to do a better job in the coming games.
Man, Rickie Weeks is just scorching the ball since coming off the DL he hit two balls really hard in his first game back but they were right at outfielders so he got nothing for them. Well he fixed that last night going 3-4 and was on base 4 times he hit a couple of frozen ropes to the gaps. Man think of what it would be like to have a hot Rickie Weeks at the top of the line up.
It was a very light night in baseball last evening so the Crew gained a .5 game on both the Cubs and the Cards who were off. So the Crew is now with in 1.5 of the Cards for the WC lead. The Crew is also at a season high 8 games over .500 getting closer and closer to the short term goal of 10 games over.
Cool side note from yesterdays game it was the Armed Forces game of the day so the Brewers were on around the world on the Armed Forces Network.
On to tonight's game
Bush vs. Morton down at Crazy Rich Guy Field aka Turner Field.
First Pitch 6:00pm CDT
TV: FSN | RADIO: WTMJ 620/BRN
Can David Bush follow his nearly perfect performance possible the best outing of his baseball career with something remotely close to that effort.
It would be nice if they can get him 8 runs in support again. I know Bush is not all that good away from Miller Park so he might need 8 runs of support lol.
The Brewers seem to be finding their way, they have for sure found their home run stroke they seem to be picking up steam as we cruise into the half way mark of the season. Lets just keep on keeping on.
Lets get the Series win tonight
