Below are some fun facts. Enjoy:
– Ryan Braun had one amazing series against the Phillies. Look at these numbers:
- 8-10, 5R, 3HR, 6RBI, .800 AVG Wow.
- Overall, Braun reached base in 12 out of 14 plate appearances. This is good for a .857 OBP Wow.
– This is the 2nd year in a row that Dave Bush has lost a no-hitter in the 8th inning. Both times it has been broken up by a former Brewer. Matt Stairs of the Phillies today and Lyle Overbay of the Blue Jays last year. Weird.
– Both times Dave Bush has taken a no-hitter into the 8th inning, they have been in stadiums that are refered too around baseball as hitters parks, not pitchers parks. Citizen Bank ballpark in Philadelphia and Miller Park.
– If you take away Bush’s relief appearance on opening day in San Francisco and just look at his 3 starts, his numbers are very good:
- 20IP, 15H, 8BB, 12K, 3.15 ERA, 1.15 WHIP
– Including the 5 shutout innings Dave Bush threw to finish his start against the Mets, Bush had a string of 12 consecutive shutout innings going until the Matt Stairs home run. Impressive.
– The Brewers are 3-0 in starts made by Braden Looper. The Brewers are 3-9 in starts by all other pitchers.
