Make It 7 Straight!

+3 lead in the NL Central!
Milwaukee is 25-14
Second best team in all of baseball!

Milwaukee came from behind last night to beat the Astros 4-2. Milwaukee manufactored enough run support to allow Dave Bush to collect his 3rd win of the season and no losses (long-term it!). In addition to Bushy, Trevor Hoffman provided the heroics by breezing by the first two batters of the ninth inning having only thrown 2 pitches. He is now 10 for 10 in saves.
Bush went 6 complete giving up 2 earned runs on 7 hits, striking out two and walking only 1 batter.

Milwaukee's bullpen didn't give up a run. Villy and Coffey looked insane and breezed through the 7th & 8th innings.

Offensively, the Crew started off slow and then turned on the heat. JJ Hardy led the Crew with 2 hits and 2 RBI's while Prince collected a double that drove home a run.

The base running, although gutsy, was effective to say the least. Funny thing is, Ned Yost would've never allowed this style of play on the baseline. Both Braun and Prince Fielder cruised by "HOLD" hand/arm signs by 3B coach Brad Fischer to score.
Casey McGahee looked pretty damn good at second. We all knew he could play Center, but was pretty sharp last night turning a double play and collecting his first RBI in a Brewer uniform.

Tom Haudricourt is getting crafty coming up with nicknames for Bush and Hoffman. Dave "Houdini" Bush and Hoffman the Great. Cheesy, but I like.
