Chris Narveson threw 7.1 innings of shut-out ball last night at Petco Park. Sadly, it was all for nothing because the pathetic Brewers (road) offense failed to drive in a run against Aaron Harang. The same Harang that had a 5.05 era and pretty much sucks. Yet the Brew Crew went 0-8 with RISP last night, which is pathetic.
Probably the most concerning thing about this ordeal is that they got shut-out by a Padres team that is horrible on the left-side infield. They lead the NL in errors, even with Jason Bartlet. So, what should've been a realistic shot at getting back to .500 on the season turns out to be right where they left off....2 games under.
Now they have to play the visiting Rockies at home (thankfully), led by Jason Giambi of all people (3 homers last night! Oldest player to do so at age 40). The ex-steroider also drove in 7 runs. Hopefully Car-go doesn't erupt this weekend, because he's certainly do.
Regardless, Brewers fans should be happy that they are entering a 9 game homestand that pits them against the Rockies, Nationals, and the San Fransico Baseball Giants. Milwaukee should be able to at walk away with 5 wins and move up to 1 game under .500 on the sason by May 29th.
Casey McGehee, yet again, stranded a RISP, as did Yuni, Braun, and Lucroy.
Narveson lowered his era down 3.44 on the season.
Ryan Braun exited the game with shoulder tightness. The reports says it's not serious...
