Finally, the Milwaukee Brewers won a series against the Rockies. The rubber match was quite the thrill show; considering that the Crew used the entire team to win!
Doug Davis made his 2nd debut with the Milwaukee Brewers...and it was in typical Doug Davis fashion (3+ hour game). He lasted only 4 innings and struggled early on giving up 4 earned runs, 3 walks, 1 HR, and struck out 4.
It was the bull pen that stole the show however!
Chris Narveson was the only pitcher to give up a hit (2) out of 6 total relievers. Everyone else pitched perfectly. Most impressive was Todd Coffey (1-0) tossed two hitless/scoreless frames and really turned the momentum for the Crew. Hoffman collected his 2nd save as well.
It was a well balanced offensive attack this afternoon. Jim Edmonds was the only Brewer to collect 2 hits, while 6 other players tallied a hit a piece. In a game this close, I was hoping to see at least one stolen base....no luck though.
Milwaukee will have the day off tomorrow before facing their main division rival, the St. Louis Cardinals. Lucky for the Crew, they won't have to face Wainwright...only Carpenter! The Cards have won two straight over the Reds and play the rubber match tomorrow (thursday) during the day.
Hopefully, the Milwaukee fanbase will "booooo" the hell out of Mark McGwire this weekend.
