Milwaukee Swept By the Tigers

The Brewers need to realize that they absolutely can't not give away games in which Craig Counsell hits a home run. Seriously, this event is about as rare as Haley's Comet (Shinedown, drink), so you have to take advantage. Casey McGehee also hit a home run but those were the only runners the Brewers would plate on Sunday, as Detroit beat Milwaukee 3-2 en route to a series sweep.

With the loss, the Brewers are now 1.5 games behind the Cardinals for the NL Central lead, and currently tied with the Giants for the Wild Card lead. Seriously, how are the Giants this competitive right now? I thought for sure they'd finish last in that division, but apparently not. You never really hear anything about them either, which is why I did about seven double takes before I put this one to print. The Crew needs to pick things up a bit here, or the division is going to get away from them in a hurry.

Player of the Game: Yovani had 8 K's over seven innings, but one bad pitch left the park in the form of a Brandon Inge three-run home run. He pitched well enough to deserve the title, but I just can't decide between him and Casey McGehee (2-for-4, HR). I think I'm going to give it to McGehee for ultimately breaking up the Justin Verlander no-hitter. Even though he was the second batter in the game, I did not want to see that crap happen again. Good work, Casey.

I'll see you again tonight when I go to bed in my head movies. But this head movie makes my eyes rain!
