Brewers Rebound With Sweep Over Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers are doing whatever they can to make us quickly forget about the time when they lost seven games in row. Since last Saturday, the Crew has posted a 6-2 clip, which included a 5-1 homestand. The one game that they did lose at home was to the Padres and I was not particularly fond of Ron Roenicke after that affair. But the Brewers proved to me and other people who may have been skeptical of this team that one week doesn't define a season, and that there is still plenty of baseball left to be played. The Brewers improved to 19-21 after two weekend wins against the Pirates (8-2 on Saturday, 9-6 on Sunday) and even though that record isn't as good as the one I thought this team would have at this time, it's a lot better than where they were a week ago.

Saturday's POTG: Prince Fielder

Great work off the mound
RBIs from all around
A complete effort

Sunday's POTG: Ryan Braun

Braun plates four runners
Homer and a triple? Nice.
Gives room for Greinke
