Randy Wolf looked excellent last night, albeit against a horrible offense in the Houston Astros. Hell, Jeff Suppan could probably shine against this horrific offense. Regardless, Wolf looked extra sharp last night going 7 complete innings , giving up 4 hits while evening his record to 4-4. In fact he even looked a little wound-up; there were a number of times where he and rookie-catcher Jonathon Lucroy had to meet at the mound in order to go over the game plan. Lucroy was making his first career-start, so one can only imagine the nerves he had catching for a veteran in Wolf. There were a couple of times where there was disconnect between the two and Lucroy would screw-up the location of a breaking ball or slider. A couple of them cost Wolf some strikes. It should be noted that Randy Wolf tossed 103 pitches (that's 3 over a 100!).
-Carlos Villenueva recorded a scoreless frame as well.
-Todd Coffey did look decent up until the 2nd out of the 9th inning, giving up 1 earned run on two hits and costing the Crew a shut-out.
Offensively, the Brewers looked sharp. Rickie Weeks snapped out of his 6-51 drought by going yard for his 6th of the season. He had two hits on the evening.
Ryan Braun hit, what appeared to be, his longest HR in Miller Park. It was a 2-run blast.
-Ken Macha used the word poppycock yesterday.....he just earned some points back from me...
-Doug Davis had a set-back and probably will have to stay on the DL longer than the 15 days.
