The Brewers continue to have problems reaching .500, let alone moving past it. Manager Ned Yost has been with the team for 6 years now, and I have to think that his seat is warming up. (Not that the injuries to their pitching staff are his fault. The loss of Torrealba was significant.)
In a game that was close until the 5th, Milwaukee mustered only 6 hits and 1 run, and that on a solo shot by Russell Branyan. I was surprised to see his name pop up. Branyan had a homer, a strikeout, and two walks on the day, so it’s nice to see he’s still his same old Three True Outcomes self.
The Brewers next host the Astros tonight at 8:05pm EDT, hoping to gain some Central ground with Manny Parra starting against Brandon Backe.
