Brewers Now 3-6 On This Ten Game Road Trip
After a 7-6 loss today to the Nationals after Guillermo Mota threw a wild pitch in the 9th that let the winning run come home from 3B the Brewers have fallen to 3-6 on this current road trip. The Brewers did battle back from a 6-0 deficit to make it 6-6 in the 6th. But they were unable to score again. We do send Ben Sheets to the mound tomorrow in the series finale in Washington, so I guess we have a chance to make it a 4-6 road trip. My question is win or lose tomorrow, is Ned Yost finally gone? What is really the difference between 4-6 and 3-7 on this trip. Both marks are awful, but will it finally be enough for Mark Attanasio and Doug Melvin to put their heads together and pull the trigger on Yost? We in Brewers Nation can only hope that when we return to Miller Park Tuesday to start a long home stand and series against the Braves that a different Manager is in the dugout. My vote is still for Frank Krembals, but I would be okay with Ted Simmons or Dale Sveum at this point. Oh and maybe a silver lining in todays game was Russell Branyan went 2-3 with a single, double and a walk. Looked great at the plate and played solid D at 3B.
