Milwaukee Gets the Sweep

Apparently this picture is supposed to be focusing on the pink bats and pink wristbands used by the Brewers on Sunday, but I think it's more or less an excuse to show off Eddie Sedar's junk. I'll let you admire little Eddie for a few moments and then we'll get into a recap.

Alright, ready?

Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks was actually pretty close for the most part, and the Brewers really don't have a lot of experience with close games this season. Either they put up 15 some runs and blow the other team out, or they struggle to even get men on base and they get slaughtered. The final score doesn't look that close as the Brewers won 6-1, but that was mainly due to a four run 8th inning in which Casey McGehee and Gregg Zaun hit back to back jacks.

Despite not scoring many runs as they've been scoring early in the ballgame, they were kept in the game thanks to some solid pitching. Chris Narveson went 5 2/3 innings giving up just three hits and one earned run, while also striking out eight batters. Another solid performance from Narveson who has been everything we were looking for and more since coming out of the bullpen. Todd Coffey, Carlos Villanueva, and even Jeff Suppan all pitched well to keep the Diamondbacks at bay, as did Mitch Stetter who was used effectively in his return role as a left-handed specialist.

With the win, the Brewers improve to 15-16 on the season and are heading back home for a stand against the Braves and the Phillies. It was a nice Mother's Day win for Milwaukee, and also a nice birthday for Prince Fielder, as he hit his fourth home run of the season on Sunday as well. Nice to see the Brewers turning things around on the end of the road trip, and looking forward to them coming back to Milwaukee.
