Not Really A Good Way To Start To A 9 Game Homestand
The Brewers quite literally sucked last night. Pretty much in all aspects of the game. Hitting, pitching and Fielding all kind of took the night off. They scored only 2 runs on 5 hits, that's right 5 hits against some guy named Kevin Slowey (what you never heard of him? Yeah me either). Bush didn't pitch horrible but he didn't pitch good either. Gave up 10 hits and 4 runs, 3 earned. Tim Dillard came into the game in the 7th and gave up 5 runs, but none of them were earned because as I said the fielding was awful last night as well. Bill Hall playing 2B had a very costly error (his second of the game) and it opened the flood gates as the Twins poured it on in the 7th. We still have 8 games left on this homestand, but if we want to catch up to the Cubs or Cardinals we need to win at least 7 of the remaining 8. We just had a 8-1 stand and there is no reason to think we can't do that again. JJ Hardy should hopefully back today or Sunday which means Counsell can play 2B and we can get the atrocious Bill Hall off the field. The fans at Miller Park really gave it to Hall last night with the boos as he was 0-3 at the plate and had those two very costly errors which now gives him 15 on the year. You know it's funny, Hall wants to be traded if he doesn't play everyday. He is getting that chance more or less with Weeks on the DL and he is doing nothing with that opportunity. Even if the Brewers wanted to trade him, could they really get anything for him at this point? He has a huge contract and has had a very bad year thus far. Oh and can we PLEASE ditch the retro uniforms yet? Another loss wearing them.
