No, this isn't a bad joke from the American Pie movies, but rather it's Chris Narveson, the Brewers pitcher who threw ten strikeouts against the Cubs on Wednesday en route to a 3-2 Brewers victory. Sure, he gave up a home run to Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija, but Milwaukee loves giving up home runs to pitchers so that doesn't bother me.
Thursday, September 24, 2009 by Winks ·
Narveson has been in the starting rotation lately, usually going about four or five innings before he's lifted from the game. He ended up going 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday while throwing 70 pitchers, and improved his record to 2-0 and his ERA to 3.82. I'm not exactly sure what the Brewers plans are for Narveson, but if he keeps this up and can extend that arm a little bit, the Brewers may have a truly solid option for their rotation next year.
As for the Brewers scoring, it was again highlighted by home runs. Prince hit his 42nd of the season which brought home Ryan Braun, and Jody Gerut added his 9th of the year. Trevor Hoffman, who will probably end up staying in Milwaukee next season, picked up his 35th save.
Tough to lose a series at home to the Cubbies, but this was a fun one to watch. The Brewers improve to 75-77, two games back of that illustrious .500 mark. They'll start a series this weekend against the Phillies, so getting back to .500 might not be easy, but here's hoping they can (sort of) avenge last year's loss to them in the playoffs. Oh, the playoffs. Remember those?
