Milwaukee's offense does the talking
What a game yesterday. It was a game of highs and lows, having Milwaukee coming back twice in the game. At one time they were down by 3 runs. But with this offense and power in the middle of the order, the Milwaukee Brewers are hard to keep down. The Crew won game 1 by a score of 9-6.
Both Prince & Braun smacked home runs yesterday, with the latter also hitting a 2-run double. All together, Milwaukee collected 5 double by five different players. Rickie Weeks, who was struggling at the plate this post season added to that mix.
Most impressive has been the play of Yuni B. The man has flat out been raking in the playoffs. Yesterday Yuni went 2 for 4 with a double and a HR. He gets my nod for player of the game (slight edge over Braun and Saito).
Zack Greinke earned the win, but was far from perfect in his 6 innings of work. He allowed 6 earned runs on 8 hits. But he did tally 6 SO's and walked 2. Saito was the star of the pitching game, holding the Cards with runners on the corner. Sait had Alberta Pujols hit in to a double play (typical Alberta fashion).
John Axford recorded the save yesterday. In order to collect the last out of the game, he had to take a liner off his throwing arm. But he was still able to throw the runner out and he says he's OK.
