Unless the offense wakes up it looks like a sweep by the Rockies. I sure wouldn't have thought that coming into the series.


Talk about a double-edged sword of a series.

Two games feature the offense giving the team an early lead that the pitchers can't hold...the other features the pitchers keeping the team close for 7+ innings while getting no support.

The overriding thing to take from this series is that the offense must do better, and the starting pitchers need to be way more efficient.

A promising start to the inning with two base hits by Fielder and Gamel is wiped out by the pitchers best friend, the 6-4-3 twin killing by McGhee. One last chance for the Crew to make up four runs.

This is not meant to be a rip on Macha by any means, just a thought I had and was wondering what others thought. But why give Cam a rest or not start him today, when there is a potential he will be getting a non-voluntary two game rest soon? Granted he hasn't been stinging it and maybe needed a day to clear his head. Just thought it was odd.

Street in for the save attempt with the Brewers having two men on and one out in the ninth. He has handled the Brewers pretty easily the last two games.

Braun hits a 3 run homer, but Gamel strikes out with Fielder on first.

Just an atrocious series, and my patience is almost gone with Hall at the plate.

Nice three run homer by Ryan Braun but not enough as Street strikes Gamel out to end the game. 5-4

Gotta play a little "what if" here and say how Rivera swung at what appeared to be ball 4 on a 3-1 count and ended up striking out. If he would have taken it for ball four Braunies homer would have been a GS and a tie ballgame...that being said, obviously a game isnt decided on one pitch and the Brewers squandered a couple other late scoring opportunities.
Hart and Counsell did both get robbed in that 7th inning though.

I was at the game last night and just a few observations for whatever it's worth...
atmosphere before the game in the parking lot was awesome and inside the park as well.
-I seriously laughed out loud when they did the starting line ups for Colorado on the scoreboard and played Matt Foley.
-In the 3rd or 4th inning? They get runners on 1st and 2nd with 0 outs and the bottom of the line up? and ground into a double play and don't cash in...very frustrating.
-It's annoying to hear fans who have no idea what they're talking about (preaching to the choir, I know) and other fans say things like "c'mon braun you suck" or "braun you need to start hitting!" Really? are you that clueless guy?

Just had to vent.

While the pitching hasn't been lights out, still should have been good enough to win these last two games....at least tuesday. gotta get the bats going or find a way to manufacture a run or two. Gotta do something to get a little spark or jump start the offense.

I wasn't able to watch the game, but yeah I would think 3-1 you are looking for a spot and speed that you can drive and that spot shouldn't be outside the zone. Hopefully this ends the slump and we get a hot streak going again.
