This just in—the Pirates are bad. With Saturday night’s victory, the Brewers are 7-3 against the Pirates this year. In 2008, Milwaukee posted a 14-1 record against the Bucs, with a 9-5 record in 2009. At Miller Park, the Brewers have won 26 of their last 29 against the Pirates.
This just in—Dave Bush is putting together a quality season. This one sorta snuck up on me. Over his last five starts, Bush is 3-1 with a 2.27 ERA. Overall he is 4-6 with a 4.14 ERA. (If you eliminate his two worst outings against Chicago and Minnesota, his ERA is 2.96.) He does have a 1.495 WHIP, which is the highest of his career, but who the hell knows what WHIP is anyway.
This just in—Ryan Braun can hit AGAIN. Braun scored three of the Brewers four runs as he went 2 for 4 at the plate with a walk. In the third inning Braun and Prince Fielder hit back-to-back homeruns. Big sigh of relief.
This just in—I am oddly obsessed with Cerveceros Day. Saturday marked the fifth annual Cerveceros Day at Miller Park. If you know me, you will realize that I am full of strange obsessions. Being obsessed with Ryan Braun is expected. Being obsessed with the fact that one day a year the Brewers wear jerseys with the Spanish word for Brewers on their jerseys is odd. Then again, I also got super excited for Jersey Shore. GTL, baby.
Brewers 4, Pirates 3
