Milwaukee shoots for a winning road trip

Milwaukee unleashed a world of hurt last night on the injury-riddled Astros. Rightfully so, the team has to take advantage of Houston playing with out Lance Berkman, Roy Oswalt, and now Mike Hampton. This would be nice if they all stay out when they FINALLY travel to Milwaukee this coming week. Wandy Rodriguez is slated to start today, although he too is suffering from a pulled hamstring.

After the bullpen dropped the ball on Friday night (Crew lost 6-3) it was up to Manny Parra to do his part in securing a rubber-match for today. He did indeed come through. Parra went 5 1/3 inning giving 3 earned runs on 8 hits. Milwaukee won 12-5.

Prince and Rivera led the charge with each collecting 3 RBI's. Prince blasted his 27th HR of the year and notched his 98th RBI. He is now second to Albert Puhols, who has 100.

-Dave Bush is set to join the club late next week. He is close to a rehab start.

-Milwaukee brings up Jesus Colome and DFA'd RJ Swindle. RJ got rocked in every appearence and is destined to be a career minor leaguer. The Rays (go figure) picked him up immediately, but then they cut him to.
