The interleague play woes continued for the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday, as they dropped their series finale game against the Tampa Bay Rays 6-3. The Brewers and their fans will have a couple of days to stew over this one, as this was one of Ron Roenicke's more questionable games as a manager. First, if Shaun Marcum is hurt, he's hurt. Don't have the guy start the game if he's only going to toss three innings. And then if you do start him, don't have him bat in the bottom of the third only to yank in before the top of the fourth. Roenicke did that, and you could see Shaun Marcum wince in pain after trying to hit David Price, which makes you again question just why the hell he was in there in the first place.
Our skipper is also getting criticized for his decision to bat Mark Kotsay, who is on a recent 0 for 15 streak, with two outs and two on in the bottom of the ninth instead of batting George Kottaras. Roenicke never gave an honest reason for his decision, just saying "it's just which guy you want to hit first", as Kottaras was on deck. It seems that in both of these situations, Roenicke made these decisions off of feel and with his gut, which he has done quite a few times this season to his success. But his managing didn't pay off on Wednesday, and it's easy to jump on him for that. Between the last few managers that the Brewers have had, I really can't tell if they are all just stubborn or if we as Brewers fans have been asking too much of them.

POTG: One of those games where nobody deserves it so we give it to the one pitcher that didn't give up a run. It's happened before, and it'll happen again. Sergio Mitre.
