Brewers Bring the Fireworks Against Cubs

The Brewers series against the Cubs has not been going well so far. Especially with how the game ended on Friday afternoon where an apparent Mark DeFelice strike three ended up being ball four, costing Milwaukee the game in extra innings. That pitch he threw can be debated ball or strike all season long, but there was nothing the Crew could do about it. All that they could do was make sure they didn't let it bother them on Saturday as they tried to salvage the series.

Turns out the Brewers found a great way to unleash their frustration. Instead of complaining, they rattled off eleven runs on fourteen hits, knocking off the Cubs 11-2. After hearing "Go Cubs Go" blare yesterday afternoon, winning in this kind of fashion on Saturday was pretty awesome.

The Brewers put up five runs right away in the first inning courtesy of a McGehee 2-RBI single and a 3-run home run by Mike Cameron. Hardy would later homer and McGehee and Cameron would notch a few more RBI throughout the game as well. They were the only three guys to get RBI in this one, as Hardy had one, Cameron had four, and McGehee had five. It should also be noted that Braden Looper pitched well on the mound.

The Player of the Game is going to go to McGehee, who was an absolute beast against his old team (4-for-5, 3 runs, 5 RBI, 1 HR). Friday's Player of the Game is Jeff Suppan, as much as I don't want to give it to him because he is the slowest person to ever play baseball. He pitched well though, so he'll get it.
