Back Playing Second Fiddle

Not a very good series in Detroit so far, to say the least. It was another rough outing from Dave Bush as the Brewers fell to the Tigers 9-5 in the second game of the series. Couple that with the Cardinals 7-1 victory over the Royals today, and you have a new leader atop the NL Central. The Cardinals are now a half game up over the Crew for first place. In what I think is a very telling stat, the Brewers fall to 14-16 since the injury of one Rickie Weeks.

Hey, I have a question. What is with the Brewers letting people rock them in their major league debuts on the mound? Doesn't this seem like this is always happening? Saturday night, the Crew made the name of new Tigers pitcher Alfredo Figaro look more like an All-Star candidate and less like a dish at Fazolis. Between that and our ability to let pitchers hit home runs off of us, the Brewers have been very kind to the opposition's hurlers this season.

As for Player of the Game in this one, which is why we are all here of course, let's give it to Ryan Braun. There's really no arguing this one, Braun was 4-for-5 with a HR, 2 runs, and 2 RBI. He improves his batting average to .325 on the season.

And hey, be sure to thank Jody Gerut for another hitless performance. Mrs. Gerut went 0-for-4 as she was filling in for Mike Cameron, who served his reduced one game suspension. Thanks, honey!
