Things seem to be falling in place for the Milwaukee Brewers in the month of June. Makes me wonder if they are peaking a wee bit too soon. Although I must say, Milwaukee has the power and bench to remain hot like this for a considerable amount of time.
Due to having internet down at work and not being at home on Tuesday, I missed my write-up on Mondays game.
Mondays Game (June 23)
Ben Sheets won another decision by going 9-1 on the season and 6-0 on the road. Shoe in for the All Stars. Again, Sheets went the distance pitching a complete game and giving a well earned day off to Solomon Torres and the rest of the bullpen. Decent outing in stats too, as he struck out 7, no free passes, and 1 earned run. His ERA is at .259 and leading the league with complete games pitched. Not bad for someone who is injury-prone. It appears this season, except for one time when he missed his start, that he hasn't had too many freak accidents. No examining his finger after throwing a pitch, or rotating his throwing arm an unusual amount of times. He seems squared away. One can tell that he is just priming himself for free agency, which it appears he is.
-Rickie Weeks went 3-4 and a walk
-Mike Cameron continues his ressurgence, by hitting his 12th home run.
Tuesday (June 24th)
Milwaukee won the their eighth of their last nine games last night thanks impart to stellar consecutive outing by Dave Bush (4-7). Coming off his near-no-hitter last week, Bush game up only one earned run, four hits, and four strike outs. Again, he almost witnessed his pen blow his lead when Salomon Torres came in and gave up a home run. The score was pulled to 4-3 before he had Corky Miller fly-out to end the game and Torres to earn his 13th save, staying perfect on the season.
-THERE WERE NO HOME RUNS LAST NIGHT BY MILWAUKEE!
-Looks like Ben Sheets will be testing the market.
