One Pitch, That's All

I may have only seen one pitch Friday night, but it was worth it. With my roommates out of town for the night. I had to take the only opportunity I had to clean our apartment. So instead of being distracted by the Brewers I listen to the music stations on Directv. I had my computer on to check in every once in awhile on the Crew. I don't know why I had Yahoo box score up but I did, and Braun was up with a 3-1 count. I decided to turn on the game, and the pitcher had just released the ball. If I would have blinked I would have missed the BOMB off of Prince's bat. It was gone the minute he connected for a Brewers 7-6 win in the 14th inning.

This game had a lot of excitement to it. Casey McGehee had a huge home run in the 8th inning that keep the Brewers alive. Yuniesky Betancourt keep the game alive in the 13th inning with his solo blast. The bullpen only gave up 1 earned run in 8 innings of work, so props to them too. This was a huge game for the Crew I think. First game back home after the west coast trip, they now sit one game under .500, and a win like that might give them some confidence.

Player of the game has to go to Fielder. He made the big hit when the Brewers needed it. I could have given this to a lot of different players, but really we will remember Fielder's blast the most about this game. Greinke started the game for the Crew, and pitched 6 innings, giving up 8 hits, 4 earned runs, but striking out 9. I hope this is the start of things for Greinke as he tries to get back to his dominate ways. Brewers are back at it again tonight at 6:10 looking to get to .500 on the season.
