Brewers Get Swept

The New York Mets came in to town, pulled out pants down, and gave Wisconsin a big kick in the ass. If anything, this series sweep that just took place shows me that the Brewers can not beat the contenders. They just got blanked by the Cubs in late July, swept by Eastern Division leading Mets, and beaten by the Western contending Dodgers. We should be winning these games, and we used to. Hell, we would have a tough time beating the nobody's. No it's turned around. New York spanked Milwaukee 9-2 in a convincing manner.

Dave Bush had a rough day on the mound yesterday afternoon. We all know that Bush has a hell of a time getting out of the first two innings with out damage. That being the case when he gave up 5 runs right away in the 1st, including a grand salami to Ryan Church.
In all, Bush pitched 5 complete innings giving up 7 hits and 6 runs, while striking out only 2 (ouch on the last part). Had he not botched the first inning, the Wake Forest alumnus would've fared he finally settled in. You will have a rough game here and there and Bush can still be relied on.

-Hardy remained hot blasting his 21st HR
-Weeks went hitless, but did get walked twice. Nice job to the underachiever.
-The young guns got their shot, with only Escobar cashing in with his first career hit in the Bigs. Congrats to the up and coming star. Salome flied out and Gamel, well, I didn't catch what Gamel did.
-River went 0-3 with a walk playing first. Prince got a much needed day off.
-Ryan Braun struck out twice and went 0-4.

*Brewers no-hit denied. CC still pitched a hell of a game and will be remembered for a long time! On the same day he was let down, he (again) received Pitcher of the Month honors for the NL.

*Luckily, the Cubs are severely struggling right now losing their 5th straight last night 4-0 to the 'Stros. They are also having pitching problems. It's just too bad that the Brewers weren't able to capitalize off this turn of events for the

*Off-Shore (of North America) experts suggest betters take the under today. Both teams are coming off sweeps and their is a trend that the next game tends to be low scoring. The over/under is set at 9. I would say over! In fact, I will put down a lowly 20 spot!
