Good Heavens....A Sweep!

1st place in NL Central
The Florida Marlins came in to town thinking the best and with high hopes. Those rapidly diminished once they entered the friendly confines of Miller Park (ha!). Despite having to come-from-behind all three games, the Milwaukee Brewers were able to pull of a 3-game sweep over the (was) NL East leading Marlins. Pretty significant sweep at that!

The Crew was lead by Prince Fielder (8) and Billy Hall (4), who both went yard for the Crew. Prince has homered 3 times in as many games.

Mike (Cam) & Mike (Rivera) both added a pair of hits each, with Rivera just coming off the DL and contributing right away. This also provided Kendall with a much needed day off, whether he agrees or not.

Dave Bush tossed 7 complete innings, earning his 2 win of the season (2-0). He gave up 2 runs on 6 hits, with only 1 walk (key!). Mark DiFilice and Trevor Hoffman, once again, provided the final nail in the coffin. Hoff recorded his 8th save (8 for 8)!

36,000 fans attended the game today...which is unheard of. It was a school day and a day-game. Unbelievable.
