Well, That Was Close

You would think that a 6-2 lead heading into the 9th inning would be an easy victory, but we know full well with the Brewers that's not quite the case. The Brewers tried to get Manny Parra to go the full nine innings on Monday night after pitching solid through the first eight, but he just didn't have the endurance to close it out. After he gave up two runs in the inning, things were turned over to Trevor Time for the save.

Hoffman had some difficulties at first, but eventually got Manny Ramirez to fly out with the bases loaded to wrap this one up, and give the Brewers a clutch 6-5 victory. Despite the decent pitching last night, Braun was the hero in this one, going 4-for-5 including a 3-run home run in the 6th inning, so he'll get the Player of the Game.

With the win, the Crew is back to .500, and showed that they can actually beat some decent competition, even if they struggle against the league's laughingstocks. Hopefully this will give them the momentum to win this series and have a good performance in Houston this weekend as well.

I'd write more, but I'm learning quickly how less time I have to blog while working an 8-5 schedule than I did when I was done with work at 12:30pm everyday. That's alright though, there's always my lunch break!
