Braden Looper may have had his worst outing yet, but he was bailed out by our high powered offense that continues to mash the ball and credited with a win. Looper gave up 3 quick runs and gave up 5 runs overall in 6 innings of work. The last few outings for Looper have been ugly. Let’s hope he got it out of his system and settles back into a groove. The bullpen was again solid outside of the Coffey hiccup. Trevor remained perfect. Rickie Weeks had 2 at-bats to complete the cycle, but fell short interestingly enough without a double. Normally the triple or home run is the elusive one. Nonetheless, Weeks is having a great year. This is what I think all of us have been waiting for. I know we are only 34 games into the year, but he has been on a tear since day one. Weeks is at .286 with 9 HR and 24 RBI out of the leadoff spot! He also has a respectable .346 OBP. The Crew continued to take their walks at the plate as well, drawing 5 last night. I’m keeping this short so I can post it before the day game today. Here’s a game preview:
This will without a doubt be the toughest pitching that the Brewers face in this series. Josh Johnson is one of the Marlins young guns who has been great this year. In 7 starts Johnson is 3-0 with a 2.34 ERA. 6 of his 7 starts have been solid. Look for a lot of K’s from the Brewers. Johnson has struck out 6 or more in 5 of his 7 starts. Dave Bush is only 1-0, but the Brewers are 4-2 in his starts. He has done a great job of keeping the Brewers in every game, giving them a chance to win. Bush has been great this year. Let’s see him keep it going and finish of this sweep of the fish! Go Crew!
