27-23: Milwaukee sweeps DC

  Milwaukee continued it's home dominance by sweeping the last place Nationals out of Miller Park.  Today, in front of 36,000+ fans the Brewers beat Washington 6-4.  Zack Greinke looked solid the first 3 innings until the 4th when he gave up a 4-run shot to Michael Morse, which tied the game up.  That being said, Zack Greinke fanned 10 batters and really only made one mistake which was the HR.  Otherwise, this was by far his best start in a Milwaukee uniform.

Greinke (3-1) tossed 100 pitches, 65 of them were for strikes.
Latroy Hawkins collected his 5th hold of the season and Kameron Loe notched his first save of the season by going 1.1 innings.  Axford was rested today.

Offensively, Milwaukee scored 6 runs behind Zack Greinke's 1st HR as a Brewer and Prince Fielder's 4 RBI, along with Braunie and Weeks throwing in a doubles (as did Prince).  Prince is on a RBI tear this season.

Milwaukee has now swept their last 3 home series (Pitt, Col, Wash)

Troubling?  Well that would be Casey McGehee putting up another collar; as did Craig Counsell.  Hart came back to earth by going o'fer as well.

Oddly enough, Milwaukee claimed Josh Wilson off of waivers from the Dbacks and Josh Fields from the Rockies...both of which are infielders.  It's apparent that Craig Counsell is proving to be a poor choice as the backup infielder.  As a result of this addition, Saito was moved to the 60 day DL, according to TH's tweet.

Todd Coffey got a big ovation when he sprinted to the pitchers mound in the 7th inning.

Nyjer Morgan is being activated Friday for the Giants series at MP.

In other news, Ryan Braun has been throwing his endorsement (and dollars) behind Limelight energy drink.  It's suppose to be a healthier alternative to other energy drinks...which is hard to believe.  It's actually not that bad...but his promotional picture from his website is horrific..  I have a feeling that this is his Oh-face.

Lastly,  I'm not even going to discuss the Bernie Brewer ornament fiasco because it's stupid.
