That's how you come back from a losing skid. Lead by our Player of the Game, Corey Hart, the Brewers scored three runs in the 6th inning and another four in the 7th to knock off Chicago (AL) 7-2. Corey Hart gets the nod with a 2-for-4, 3 RBI performance. Both of Hart's hits were for extra bases (a double and a triple), and he also made a spectacular catch in right field that prevented at least two runs.
Jeff Suppan nearly got the nod as he had an RBI as well, and gave up just two runs in 6 2/3 innings. But we are trying to judge every one equally, and while last night's performance is incredible and amazing from Jeff Suppan, we're still going to go with Corey Hart on this one. Here's a look at the standings through June 12th, and they can also be found in the first column on the right hand side of this blog:
9 - Prince Fielder
6 - Mike Cameron, Rickie Weeks, Yovani Gallardo, Ryan Braun
3 - J.J. Hardy, Braden Looper, Corey Hart
2 - Dave Bush, Manny Parra, Mat Gamel, Craig Counsell, Casey McGehee
1 - Todd Coffey, Trevor Hoffman, Mark DiFelice, Mother Nature, Jeff Suppan, Frank Catalanotto, Mike Burns, Seth McClung, Jorge Julio
That's right, even Jorge Julio has earned one of these things. We'll see who wins it today as the Brewers have some Saturday afternoon ball, taking on the White Sox at 3:05pm on Fox. National television has not been kind to us this season, so we'll see how we do.
Then Littlefoot knew for certain he was alone, and although the Great Valley was far away, the journey there was perilous. He would have to find his way, or the chain of life would be broken.
