Blue Jays 4, Brewers 5: Milwaukee Stands Tall Again

Blue Jays (35-38)0001011104100
Brewers (38-33)01020110-5110
W: Sheets (8-1) L: Marcum (5-4) S: Torres (9)


For the second night in a row, the Brewers were the only team in the NL Central to win. I like that strategy for gaining on the teams ahead of you. I wonder why more teams don’t employ it.

Ben Sheets was the pitcher of record for Milwaukee, going 6 innings and allowing 2 runs. It took him 108 pitches to get that far, though, thanks in part to 4 walks. The walks might be a trouble sign for the future, but for now, Sheets is kicking butt for the Brewers.

The homers keep flying out for the Brewers, too. Russel Branyan clubbed another one, and Mike Cameron joined in the fun. Over the last week or so, Milwaukee has been playing much more like I expected earlier this year. I’ll be watching to see if this is the real Brewers team. For the sake of all those fans who don’t want the Cubs to win, you’d better hope so.
