What more can you say about Yovani Gallardo. He is a true ace and one can only hope that he is in a Brewer uniform for a long, long time. He has the ability to snap a losing streak and make a team feel a lot better about themselves. He turns bad to good, dark to light, bitter to sweet, hell to heaven……..you get the idea. Early this year Jason Kendall said that Yovani would win a Cy young some day. I think that this has a very good chance of happening. The offense did enough to get Yo the win. I guess that’s not hard when you only have to score 1 run. 4 Brewers had 2 hits. Most importantly was Mat Gamel, who drove in 3 runs with those 2 hits. The more Gamel hits, the quicker we get to the point where we don’t have to see Bill Hall anymore. Prince also continued his tear. He reached base safely all 4 times, going 2-2 with a double and 2 walks. As I said yesterday, if the Brewers can get 1 this weekend I’ll take a 3-4 road trip. Here is a preview of today’s game:
Suppan will go in game 2 for the Crew. Like I’ve said before, it is what it is. You just have to deal with it and hope that the Brewers come out on top. Suppan actually deserved a win in his last start against the marlins, but Julio blew up. Currently, the Brewers are 6-5 in starts made by Suppan. If the Brewers can play .500 when he starts for the entire year, I’ll take it. Javier Vazquez will pitch for the Braves. Vazquez has been around for a long time, but this is his first year with the Braves. So far he has done fairly well. Vazquez is 4-4 with a 3.58 ERA. Vazquez also has a long career against the Brewers. Tonight will be his 15th career start against the Crew. In the previous 14, Vazquez is 5-6 with a 5.01 ERA. The Brewers have hit .275 off him over this span. Safe to say the Brewers have done quite well against him in the past. Hopefully this continues. Go Brewers!!
