Open Thread of Triumphant Homecoming

The Brewers come home after the most successful road trip in the history of the organization, with a chance to grab a tie for first with the Cubs. Left hander (who is pitching surprisingly well this season) is in the way. His career numbers against the Crew are pretty bad, especially his last four starts. Rodriguez has lost 4 in a row against the Crew averaging just 4.8 innings in each of those 4 starts, compiling a per game score of 45.25. Not too hot. To be fair, however, Parra has not fared a whole lot better. Interesting, this will be his 4th starts this year against Houston. He is 2-1 with an ERA of 6.46 (wow) and lasting about 5 innings per start. Parra is riding a hot streak however, netting a win in each of his last 4 starts.

Keep it up Manny!
