Extra-Innings? No Problem.

The Brewers were victorious once again in extra innings beating the Reds 5-3. Supan, once again, pitched a hell of a game but didn't get recognition for it as he allowed only 3 runs and 3 hits, tallying on another n0-decision. Although I wasn't able to watch this game, I did hear it on the radio as I was driving up north to Tomahawk. Guillermo Mota picked up his first win of the season (1-0). Mota really pitched a good couple of innings that were key in this win.

Gagne is a topic worth mentioning as well. After blowing 2 saves weeks ago, this Canadian has been pitching lights out. Nothing too savvy either, rather pitches in the 90-92 mph range. I still think he will be one of the National Leagues best closer. As for Cordero, you have to be put in to a position to save the game. The Reds have been in a funk as of late and Coco has been called upon limited times. Hell, he came in to the game in the 8th in a 3-3 tie.

So the Crew are perfect in playing extra-inning games, which is sort of nice considering the fact that those are the matches that build character and provide experience to the younger players.
