Marlins (17-17) v. Brewers (20-14)

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!
