Angels Prevent Brewers From Sweep

After two dominating victories against the Angels, on the road mind you, Brewers fans were starting to get a little confused because Milwaukee was playing better than they had all year. They were popping off runs while getting good performances out of guys like Dave Bush, so there was plenty of reason for optimism. But all good things must come to an end, and the Angels had no problem humbling the Brewers on Wednesday night.

Maybe it was because it's hard to beat a team three times in a row, or maybe it was because the game was played in the twilight (seriously, how many times did BA and Rock mention that word? And on a sidenote, how awkward was the interview with the guy who was supporting colon cancer research?), but the Brewers were unable to get the victory.

After a good performance in his last outing, Chris Narveson reverted back to his first inning struggles as he gave up a solo shot to Mike Napoli. He then gave up another home run to Bobby Wilson (who?) in the second inning, and that pretty much did the Brewers in. Carlos Gomez of all people hit a solo shot to at least get Milwaukee on the board, but nothing else could be mustered up and the Brewers lost 5-1.

Can't really complain though, as the Brewers did win two out of three games on the West Coast, a locale where they usually struggle. They'll have an off day on Thursday, which I'm sure will be spent reading my World Cup running diary (starting at 6:30am sharp... if I wake up....). Then it's off to Colorado for the lone National League series this weekend, and some more Interleague play back in Milwaukee next week.

POTG: Go Go Gomez.
