About time Sheets Delivers Victory

Well wasn't that nice Ben Sheets pitched very well and the Bats actually decided to score some runs for him. And the Result was a 6-0 win over the Nationals at Miller Park.

The only possible dark cloud on the whole night was that Ryan Braun had to leave the game with "Back Stiffness" hopefully it is just a tweak and he will be back in the line up today or tomorrow.

Giving credit where credit is due, Sheets looked very good last night he was on and for the first time since they got CC the Brewers were actually able to hit a team with their vaunted one two punch.

Which is good news since Tom H was basically saying their is virtually no chance they will be able to resign Sheets or Sabathia in the off season I will not miss Sheets but losing Sabathia is going to really suck ass.

The win last night helped the Crew gain a game on Cubs and maintained their 2 game lead over the Cards. It is their 4th win in a row and they remain undefeated since Prince helped Manny find a spot to rest on the bench.

Cory Hart should have at least 3 home runs this series not the one he has the Nats have a very young and fast outfield that keeps pulling Harts home runs back into the park. The one he did get out of the stadium he made sure they were not going to get a glove on it.

So on to this afternoons game.
Parra vs. Lannan at wonderful Miller Park

First Pitch is at 1:05pm CDT

TV: FSN | RADIO: WTMJ 620, ESPN Deportes 1510, BRN

How will Manny Pitch in his first time out since being attacked by Prince? That is the question and can the bats keep up bashing the Nats pitching staff?

A win today would give us the series and would once again gain us a game on either the Cubs or the Cards. They have to keep taking advantage of this "weak' schedule over the rest of the month and continue to drive to the playoffs.

They are 16 wins from the first goal on the road to the playoffs a winning season. They are currently 15 games over .500. Life is pretty good right now if you are a Brewers fan.

Heading out to the game today so I will miss the pleasure that is having ESK tell me I am stupid in the Open Thread. Such a shame.

Talk to you all after the game

Hurray Beer
