Brewers Showing Unexpected Competitiveness

I'm a day late on this quick Brewers recap, but I hope you appreciate the irony that just as I was writing the title to this post, Chris Narveson gave up a home run to Mike Napoli. So that's nice. But it doesn't change the fact that the Brewers have already won their series against the Angels, which is all that the Brewers are trying to do right now. Win one series at a time.

They did so last night with an impressive 7-1 victory over the Angels, as the runs were kicked off by a 2-run shot by Prince Fielder in the first inning. Alcides Escobar and Corey Hart would add RBI as the game went on, the Brewers continued to look very comfortable hitting in Anaheim.

Also unexpectedly looking comfortable was Dave Bush, who cruised through seven innings, allowing just one run. He wasn't unhittable by any means, but he did avoid a big inning which has been a problem for him throughout his career. Starting pitching is the position where this team absolutely needs to improve the most, and it's good to see some positive results in that category. I'll go with him for the Player of the Game.

The Brewers are going for the series sweep as I type, although they are currently trailing. Chris Narveson looks like he might have settled down a bit, but we'll see what happens.
