Stop me if you read this post before, as in, yesterday. The starting pitcher for the Brewers is strolling right along, gets through seven innings, a reliever comes in for the eighth, and then all of the North Side of Chicago is breaking out their "W" flags. Pretty lame if you ask me. Kudos to Roenicke for not relying on Kameron Loe this time around, but would it kill him to have one of his starters go into the eighth? Hell, take him out if he gives up a hit, but let the guy finish what is rightfully his.
While there is plenty to complain about after another Brewers loss to the Cubs, I'll keep this short and sweet because technically we're still in first place (and it's one hour before Wednesday's game). Chris Narveson is on the bump tonight against Carlos Zambrano, and the last thing I want to see is a fiery Zambrano yelling into his glove while walking to the dugout after another scoreless inning. Let's take it to Chicago tonight boys, and get our first win of the season down at Wrigley.
Will Ron walk Castro?
Put him on, try double play?
Nope, take the win, Cubs!
POTG: Yovani Gallardo
