Three Game Win Streak For the Crew

When you play twenty games in twenty straight days, there are two things that you really want to do. The first of course, is to win as many of those games as possible. The second though, is to preserve your bullpen as much as much as you can. Both of those things were accomplished on Friday night, as Yovani Gallardo threw his first complete game ever en route to a 5-2 victory of the Astros.

Gallardo has some real good stuff all night, except for one blemish which was a two-run shot to our old friend Carlos Lee. Other than that, he gave up just four more hits and struck out seven batters. Our pitching has really stepped it up on this road trip, and I'm definitely liking what I'm seeing. Whether or not that keeps up with Jeff Suppan tonight remains to be seen.

Offensively, it was a four run fifth inning that put the Brewers on top for good. They did it the hard way too, as each run was delivered by an RBI single. Hardy, Fielder, Braun, and Cameron all notched an RBI in the rally. Rickie Weeks added a home run for good measure later in the game, and the Brewers are one game away from a winning road trip.

That's all I got for now, the Packers are on the clock!

Player of the Game: Yovani Gallardo.
