Second Verse, Same as the First

Consider me speechless.

The first glance I was able to get at this game was when I entered the room with the Brewers down 2-0. I thought to myself what a coincedence that was, because the first glance I had of the game Monday night also saw the Brewers down 2-0.

Little did I know the Brewers would comeback to win Tuesday night almost exactly how they came back to win on Monday.

Tonight was a bit different, as the Crew fell down 3-0 before they were able to score any runs. Jeff Suppan didn't pitch any better than Seth McClung, and if we weren't paying Soup the big bucks there's no doubt he'd be the odd man out in this rotation (at least right now).

It took the Brewers 7 innings to finally put a run on the board, and they kept chipping away to make it 3-3 heading into the 9th inning.

If things looked a little familiar at this point, imagined how they looked to Bill Hall.

Hall, the hero Monday after a 10th inning home run, basically repeated his performance with a 9th inning shot that eventually won the game. It may only be two games, but Bill Hall may have put an end to the 3rd base platoon.

Because it wasn't just two games. It was two games against a division rival, an NL Central contender. It was two games in their place. And it was two games that may have gotten us a little closer to the first-place Cubs.

Box Score.

If we're in first place by then, you can do whatever you want.
