It was a playoff-like atomosphere tonight at Miller Park (so I'm told, anyways), as the sold out crowd came out to support the newly acquired CC Sabathia. A bit erratic at times, CC came through in some big spots and lead the Brewers to a 7-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
Sabathia's final line was 6 innings pitched, 2 earned runs, 5 walks and 5 K's, earning his first win as a member of the National League. Every big pitch, every CC strikeout, and even every one of his at bats (he was 0-for-2) were met with loud cheers of support for the new hurler. He may not have been nervous, but he definitely was charged up, and so far so good for the Brewers on this deal.
The runs came the way of Ryan Braun initially, after he hit a 3 run shot in the 1st inning. A few more across the plate in the later innings coupled with three scoreless innings from the bullpen and the Brewers were able to come out with the victory.
The Brewers are now 50-40, still 1/2 back of St. Louis and 4 back of Chicago. The Cubs made news of their own today acquiring Rich Harden and Chad Guadin, a move made to counter the Brewers dealing for Sabathia. I still think the Cubs win the NL Central, and the Brewers grab the Wild Card, barring some sort of tragic collapse only reserved for the 2007 Mets. Whether or not the Cardinals make a move and try to stay in this thing remains to be seen.
TBC's Player of the Game: Wanted to give it to Sabathia, I really did. Even thought about Braun for his 3 run shot. But Rickie Weeks was the difference maker, with his three runs scored.
