Kendall Wins Player of the Game???

When you're struggling for wins, you'll take whatever you can get. That was definitely the case for the Brewers Wednesday night, when Jason Kendall turned a double to the wall into the game-winning run, thanks to the comedy of errors from the Minnesota Twins.

Down a run, Kendall nearly hit a home run in the 8th inning to score J.J. Hardy, but the ball just missed the top of the fence. Hardy beat the play at the plate to score the tying run, but the ball got away from Joe Mauer and Kendall advanced to third. Nick Blackburn then made a ridiculous throw to third base that ended up in the outfield, and Kendall scored. A Lemony Snicket type series of events for the Twins that led to a 4-3 Brewers win. Watch it.

For his efforts, Jason Kendall will buck the odds and earn his first Player of the Game award. He also had an RBI single in the 6th inning.

In other news, Looper got nailed with a shot from Carlos Gomez, but he should be okay. Mike Burns will be on the hill for his first major league start when the Crew takes on the Twins at 1:05 on Thursday, and Seth McClung will start in Parra's place on Saturday. Oh yeah, and Hoffman got his first save in like a week.
