I couldn't believe me eyes last night....Milwaukee actually won a nationally televised game on ESPN! In extra-innings nonetheless, 4-3.
Manny Parra pitched his career-best game last night, even though it last all but 5 1/3 innings. He recorded a career-best 10 strike outs and even made a little history by striking out 4 batters in one inning. Parra gave up HR's to Colby Rasmus and Albert Puhols last night and also exited the game with the bases loaded. Dave Bush was able to record an out and then Kameron Loe took care of the rest.
Zach Braddock earned his first win of the season and his career (1-0). This earned him the ceremonious beer shower.
John Axford recorded 4th save this season.
Carlos Villenueva recorded his 2nd blown save of the season.
Prince Fielder went 3-4 on the night, all three hits were singles.
Rickie Weeks hit his 10th HR of the season.
George Kottarus can look pretty rough behind the plate. He and Lucroy are NOT the answers (full-time) at Catcher. On a part-time basis, both can get the job done.
He had an error that resulted in Albert reaching 3B during a key moment at the end of the game.
