Crew Grinds Out A Win

Pretty boring game to watch, I'm not gonna lie. Braden Looper is turning out to be the ONLY bright spot in the rotation. With Yovannia struggling over his past 4-5 starts and Parra, finally, starting to come's looking like Looper was one of the best off-season picks-ups for the Brewers.

His record improved to 9-4 and boy did he look impressive last night. Looper threw 7 shut-out innings and gave up only 4 hits. This is after his start last week where he had 3 hits at the plate. Loop-Dog is starting to look like the anchor of the rotation.

Prince Fielder, again, provided some insurance with an RBI-single in the 7th inning. Fielder went 2 for 4 with 2 RBI's.

Craig Counsell started at 3B but then shifted to 2B after Felipe Lopez left with a sore hamstring. Hopefully it's nothing that a few days rest can't provide. With a day game today and an off-day on Thursday, Lopez should be ready to go for Friday's game against Atlanta.
Counsell went 3 for 4 on the night with a walk. Lopez went 1 for 4 with a walk as well.

Trevor Hoffman didn't look rusty at all. After a couple of days off, he was able to notch his 22nd save, while DiFelice and Stetter recorded holds.

-Milwaukee Brewers courted by City of Palms Ballpark in Arizona for a possible Spring Training site-change. Apparently the Brewers aren't happy with Maryvale Park? First I heard of this.
Why would a team want to move away from Phoenix to a more suburban training site?
