Brewers grinded out another win last night. Jeff Suppan pitched his best game this season going 8 shut-out innings (could have lasted 9, I think) striking out seven and giving up four hits. He was pretty much lights out. I like what I see so far in having him return to his normal three-spot in the rotation. Had it not been for the JJ Hardy error last week, he may have pulled off another win, or a no-decision. So Sup is 3-4 on the season and make some gains as the season grows older.
Most noteworthy would have to Salomon Torres has been picture-perfect in the closing role. He has been the lead man in the closer by committee model.
Rickie Weeks powerfull liner down the third base line drove home the winning run last night and gave him a stand up triple. He had two of the 3 total hits in the line up. Billy Hall had the other. Make those hits count!
Billy Hall had another error last night (12). However, he did have some good defensive plays afterwords. In one play he fielded a speedy grounder and threw out the runner from his knees.
- Jo Jo Reyes (like the teeny bopper singer) threw an immaculate game as well throwing 7 innings and giving up only 2 hits. That has to sting!
- Jason Kendall continues to surpirse Milwaukee and the NL with his arm strength this season. He played the lead role in a double play off a nicely placed bunt last night. Not to mention that he's throwing out over 40%!
- Why did Yost have Joe Dillon pinch hit in the ninth? Really? Joe Dillon? C'mon! You had a couple of options in that dug out Ned....Joe Dillon? Geez.
Today 12:00pm game could bring the Crew back to .500! Who'd thought we would be saying that days away from June 1st? Well, look at the Rockies last year and tell me that the Brewers out of it! Ya Can't!
