Home Runs Flying For Brewers

Zing - Let's cover three games in one post. It's Spring Training, so we can do that. The highlight of the Brewers ballclub over the last two days was Friday's game against the Cubs, in which they smacked Chicago around en route to a 12-3 victory. Home runs in this one were had by Jim Edmonds, Jody Gerut, and my boy Gregg Zaun. In all, the Brewers collected 12 runs off of 13 hits. Decent pitching performance by Doug Davis as well, who made his first "official" start in stint number two with the Brewers.

Boom - Ryan Braun also found the home run stroke over the last couple of days, hitting his second of Spring Training. Despite that, the Brewers ending up losing 7-3 to Oakland. Randy Wolf pitched a decent three innings, giving up no runs and striking out four.

Tararell - Chris Narveson pitched well in the Brewers split squad's 3-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, going three innings and giving up just one hit. Not pitching as well were Chris Capuano and Mark Rogers, guys that have been interesting stories this Spring Training as they come back from injury.

Puke - Even though the Brewers have lost two out of their last three games, things are still looking positive. At least in comparison to this quote from Player X in ESPN the Magazine, when he was talking about the party life that can be had while going through Spring Training in Arizona: "I heard a story about Bill Hall when he was with Milwaukee. He was coming off a career year in 2006 when he had 85 RBIs, 35 homers, and a new $24 million contract. He showed up to camp pretty loose. He was having fun off the field too. Word of his partying made the rounds and guys predicted he was due for a slump. Sure enough, his RBI total dropped to 63, he hit only 14 homers the next season and he was a disaster in the field. It started in spring and he never recovered."
