62-50: Cardinal Beat Down By Milwaukee
Hey LaRussa, take what ever dignity you have left and get out of town.
Milwaukee destroyed St Louis 12-5 in todays matinee. The rubber match turned out to be a shoot out with the two teams cranking out the hits with Milwaukee notching that category 15 to 11.
Casey McGehee led all Brewers with a huge game; he notched his first career 3 HR game and he drove in 5 runs and scored 3 times himself.
The top of the batting order was potent as well, with Hart adding a HR and a single. Morgan & Braun each added a pair of hits each, with the latter hitting a double.
Felipe Lopez also added 2 hits.
Randy Wolf (8-8) went 6 complete, giving up 5 earned on 9 hits (2 k's / 2 bb).
The bullpen was lights out! Loe, Hawkins, and Axford each pitched an inning and they only allowed 2 hits in 3 innings.
Milwaukee owns St Louis this season, that's for sure. At home, St Louis has only won 1 game out 6 attempts.
No retalation in today's game.
Ron Roenicke says Rickie Weeks is making progress, just got off crutches
Milwaukee surpassed 2010 ticket sales already
THIS is funny....LaRussa actually called Rock and talked with him about Bill's use of words in last nights commentating of the game and the incident that took place. Why the hell would a major league skipper call an opposing team's tv announcer and take issue with words that were said. Unreal, LaRussa is off his rocker.
Pujols was a woeful 1 for 14 in the series.
Erik Komatsu, who was part of the deal that brought us Jerry Hariston Jr, has "hitting in his genes". I agree. He's going to be a star and I don't agree with Milwaukee dealing him away. He's a good OF option.
Awesome story that was done on the Brewers and the city of Milwaukee, by Sports Illustrated. I'm waiting for them to feature the Crew on the front page. That hasn't happened since 1987 with Rob Deer and Team Streak...I think.
