Grisham leads off with an opposite field HR.  I don't know, but I remember some trying to tamp down the excitement with Hiura that he wouldn't make enough contact and people had too high of expectations of him and he seems to have held his own pretty well.  Some are saying the same about Grisham.  If the guy finishes the season on a high note, he will be on the major league roster next year and somehow, CC will have to find a way to get him into the lineup.  

Now, Stearns has a penchant for making strange moves with young potential and maybe he trades him for a lefty reliever, but shy of doing that, he will be on the major league roster.  

I expect this team to rally with the Yelich absence and maybe can sweep the Marlins.  But this weekend will be tough as the Cards have controlled the Brewers lineup pretty well which makes the next 2 games important ones.  Sweeping the Fish and getting 1 win in St. Louis is ok.

Moustakas returned to the lineup with a bang hitting two HR's, driving in five runs, including the go-ahead two on an absolute blast to right in the ninth. Hader then struck out the side (sandwiched around a two-out single, with the last two on sliders no less) to preserve the 7-5 victory for Brent Suter who pitched three scoreless in relief.

On the Yelich front, no surgery is required and he is out six weeks...which would be just as the World Series is starting.

If I'm not mistaken (and I'm not) my opinion was that his defense was that of Rickie Weeks (POOR).
I did not think Stearns or CC would tolerate that.
However, I was incorrect (which I did post) and his bat by far out weighs his defensive lapses, which have become few.

Any ways, it looks like Yelich may not be as badly injured as first thought.

My MOJO is workin'.
3/4 from the Cubs, 3 at least from the fish.
If they can get 3/4 from the hate Red Birds...…..we can dump the Cubs!!


Under these circumstances (injuries etc) that would be a HUGE success!!!!
Keep them sticks workin' boys!!!

Brewers complete the sweep with a 3-2 win Thursday afternoon using a Moustakas first inning sac fly and a Ryan Braun third inning 2-run HR to support the pitching staff which after four innings and two runs given up saw Gio Gonzalez give way to one of the better bullpen performances in team history. Ray Black (1 IP, 2 K), Drew Pomeranz (1 IP, 3 K), Freddy Peralta (2 IP, 3 K) and Josh Hader (1 IP, 2 K) combined to go five innings without conceding a base runner, striking out 10 Marlins in the process.

Nice to finally see them do what they should against a bad team.
