Brewers grind out much needed win

Thankfully, the Milwaukee Brewers decided to show up today. What started off as a "oh shit, here we go again" type game for the Crew, turned out to be a feel-good win. Mike Camerson provided the heroics as he drove home the winning run, represented by Ryan Braun. Braun was able to advance to third base thanks impart to Prince Fielders CLUTCH single in the bottom of the 8th inning. They actually manufactured a run that won the game for them.

CC Sabathia was spared the loss, which would have been his first in a Milwaukee uniform since coming on board. Instead, he earned his second straight no-decision, which he will take with a smile. The usually sturdy LHP gave up 3 earned runs and a surprising 8 hits, despite striking out a typical 8 batters.

Even more amazing was Ray Durham replacing the awful Rickie Weeks and Craig Counsell filling in for Billy Hall. Both Hall and Weeks should be benched in tomorrows series opener in Philly, if the Crew would like to compete. Both Counsell and Durham had a hit each, with Ray being walked twice. A hell of a lot better than the other two douche bags.

No Brewer had more than 1 hit in todays game. All that was needed was Mike Cameron's RBI single to halt a retched September skid.

Tony Gwynn JR almost cost the game for the Crew in the 8th when he hit in to a double play, which did allowed JJ Hardy to score after the Reds turned two on first and second base. So in retrospect, Gwynn should be credited!

Mota did earn the win, a much deserved win! He is now 5-5 on the year which was filled with descriptive swear words that fans through out at him or to themselves.
Torres redeemed himself and earned the save striking out the side and earning his 27th save in 34 appearances. Not too bad for a set-up man who is well seasoned.
