Brewers Edge the Diamondbacks

A four-run seventh inning helped lead the Brewers over the Diamondbacks on Thursday, as the Brewers continue to have one of their most successful (in terms of record, anyway) Spring Training camps ever. Minor leaguer Steffan Wilson earns his first and last Player of the Game from The Bucky Channel for his go-ahead, two run double during the seventh to help the Brewers beat Arizona 8-7.

Corey Hart continued to stay hot by going 2 for 3 and collecting 2 RBI's. A day after he was out because of a trip to the dentist, Bill Hall had an RBI in the 7th inning on a pinch hit opportunity. And Casey McGehee, after having earned a spot on the team for his stellar spring play, went 0 for 3. 

On the hill, Dave Bush got touched up, bad. In six innings he gave up 13 hits and six runs, including three home runs. He threw 101 pitches, which is the most important number at this time of the season, but not a very good day for Bush. Todd Coffey netted the win, Jorge Julio a hold, and Wes Littleton (already sent down) got the save.

Also, Craig Counsell will not have knee surgery, Mike Lamb has chosen to be released rather than head down to the minors, and the U.S. Soccer team beat Trinidad and Tobago last night 3-0 (figured you didn't want to sit through a second soccer post this week).

Crew plays again today against the ChiSox at 3:05pm.
