Bats Break Out Against Pirates

Bumped to the back burner by many in the state of Wisconsin because the Packers were on (albeit the preseason), the Brewers put on quite a show for those that were watching. Lead by six runs in the the 7th inning, the Brewers cruised to a 10-4 victory over the Pirates at Miller Park.

The Crew got at least one RBI tonight from every batter 1 through 8, including two each from Hardy, Cameron, and Hart. Cameron and Hardy homered in the contest as well.

Off the mound, it was Dave Bush going seven strong innings, giving up three runs. He improved his record to 8-9 on the season. Gagne gave up a run in the 8th, and McClung pitched a scoreless 9th.

It was a big win for the Brewers, as tonight was unofficially blowout Friday in the NL Central. The Cubs lost at home to the Nationals today 13-5, while the Cardinals beat the Braves 18-3. The Brewers are now 4 1/2 back of Chicago, and still 2 1/2 up on St. Louis.

Admittedly, this wasn't the best Brewers recap I've ever written. As is the theme of the night, this Brewers recap was put on the back burner as I'm watching the end of the Packers game.

Box Score.

TBC's Player of the Game: Corey Hart got things with a 2 RBI double in the 4th, so we'll give it to him.
