Gimme Five

So, this must be what five wins in a row feels like. Who knew? Things looked a bit dreary for Milwaukee on Friday night as Dave Bush and the Crew fell down 3-0 early, but then from there it was all offense for the Brewers as they put up eight unanswered runs and won the game 8-3. As we've discussed, the Brewers are in a crucial part of their season right now, and the fact that they are actually winning these games is actually impressing the hell out of me. I just don't think that this team is the kind of team that can put together eight, nine wins in a row, but all week long they've proved me wrong by doing nothing but winning. I think I like that.

In this game, your hero and TBC player of the game honors have to go to Jonathan Lucroy, who finally got his first professional RBI in a big way as he hit a 3-run shot in the 4th inning to tie the Brewers with Seattle, and then Carlos Gomez hit a solo shot of his own to give the Brewers the lead for the first and final time.

The Brewers got plenty of run support after that and also a solid outing out of their pitching staff after Dave Bush settled down, as Carlos Villanueva, Kameron Loe, and Trevor Hoffman all pitched well in relief. Here's something, were you aware that Loe has a 0.63 ERA since getting called up to the Brewers? Where did this guy come from? Either way, it's been awhile since we've really complained too much about the bullpen, or the pitching staff as a whole for that matter. With that being said, it's no coincidence how this team has won five games in a row.

The Brewers go for six tomorrow as they host the Mariners in an afternoon game, first pitch set for 3:10pm. I don't mind if you watch this game, in fact I hope you do, but you better make sure the U.S./Ghana game is over first. Such a big day for American soccer on Saturday, and I hope you're watching with us. Then we can watch the Brewers go for six. This is the point of the post where I'd post an emoticon if I was into that sort of thing.

Oh, what the hell. Go Brewers. :)
