When the cities of Milwaukee and St. Louis eventually go to war, this series will be looked at as the equivalent to the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria. The Brewers and the Cardinals are going to square off another nine times this season, and I wouldn't be surprised if this recent series is going to end up to be the most tame of them all. In what is sure to be a race to the finish in the NL Central, I truly believe these games between the two clubs are what is going to decide the division, and it's great to see that the Brewers currently have the upper hand.
All eyes throughout Major League Baseball have been on this series, especially after Tony LaRussa has made it his personal mission to complain about every single thing the Brewers do differently than the Cardinals. But there were no major instances in this series finale, no hit by pitches, no bench-clearing brawls. Instead, there was not one, not two, but three home runs from Casey McGehee, who came into the game with five home runs yet left the game with eight. Three home runs, five RBI, and a career day for the Milwaukee third basemen who needed a game like this in the worst way. And from what it sounds, you can thank a little youngster for the success.
Next up for the Crew, a much needed day off. They'll be off to Houston for a hopeful three game sweep and then other day off on Monday. It's a great time to be a Brewers fan right now, let's hope the team keeps it that way.
Hey Casey McGehee
Where the hell did that come from?
Anyway, keep it up!
POTG: Casey McGehee
