The only drama in Friday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals was whether Jaime Garcia would pitch a perfect game. And, then, after he gave up a four-pitch walk to Casey McGehee with one out in the eighth inning, whether he would pitch a no-hitter. Seth said that if I was a fan of the game, I would want to see a perfect game or a no-hitter.
Umm, no, I do not want to see a no-hitter or perfect game pitched against the Brewers. So I glared at Seth and hoped for a hit. Yuniesky Betancourt finally broke through for a single in the eighth inning. Although the perfect game and no-hitter were off the table, the Brewers still trailed 6-0. And no amount of glaring at Seth could make the losing streak end at six.
Hang with 'em.
