The Brewers debut for Zach Greinke didn't go exactly according to plan last week against the Atlanta Braves, but his first appearance at Miller Park had to be crowd pleasing enough for the Milwaukee faithful. Greinke only went six innings and was lifted after a pitch count of 89, but he did enough to earn our POTG honors for the night. He struck out nine batters, allowed two runs on five hits, and had zero walks. Give him a couple more starts before we truly see some ace-like performances, but until then it was good to see him come out and have a quality start on Monday.
It should go without saying that he had a little better of a support structure behind him in this one, as the last time he threw for Milwaukee, the defense had three errors while he was on the mound. Although it was long after Greinke was pulled from the contest, Yuniesky Betancourt helped preserve Greinke's win in the eighth inning with a backhanded flip to Rickie Weeks to start a brilliant double play. It was the kind of defensive play you don't see too often out of the Brewers, especially ones named Yuniesky Betancourt. Good on him.
Offensively, the Brewers earned the 4-3 win thanks to a couple of RBI from Rickie Weeks (one via a solo homer), an RBI from Jonathan Lucroy, and a Mat Latos wild pitch that scored Carlos Gomez. The Brewers improve to 15-20 with the win, and you'd like to see this homestand against the Padres and Pirates give them a 4-2 clip at the very least. I'd like to see the Brewers back to .500 by the end of May, if not sooner. A nice homestand, and wins like this one, will help.
