Brewers (33-23) v. Braves (26-28)

You got to love back to back shutouts.  Although this one was not as impressive as Yovani’s, you still have to give credit to Suppan.  Suppan worked out of trouble practically every inning, but managed to keep any runs off the board for 5 1/3 innings.  After this the bullpen took over and was lights out as normal for the remaining 3 2/3 innings.  Once again the offense didn’t do much, but it is easy to win when you only have to score one run.  Prince took care of this all by him self with a pair of solo homers.  Prince is officially on an absolute tear!  Check out his numbers through the first 6 games in June:  .500 Avg, .577 OBP, 3 HR, 3 2B, 6 RBI, 7 R, 4 BB, 1 K.  Now that’s some good stuff.  In the process he has raised his overall average to .299 and has 54 RBI in 56 games.  Fielder is really carrying us right now, so the other guys can feel free to jump in any time.  I really suggest watching today’s game and if you are unclear why check out the preview:

Tommy Hanson who ranks anywhere from in the top 4 pitching prospects in all of minor league baseball will make his highly, highly anticipated MLB debut.  By all accounts, Hanson has wicked stuff and has backed it up at all levels.  He has a plus fastball  that can reach 96-97, a slider, a 12-6 curveball and a changeup.  Not only this, but Hanson has superior control as well.  So far this year in the minors, he had 90 K’s to only 17 BB’s.  He has a lot of hype to live up to, show maybe he will be a little nervous which could help the Crew.  Normally the Brewers don’t fair well against pitchers they’ve never seen, or making their MLB debut.  The enigma we call Manny Parra will try and complete the sweep for the Brewers today.  Parra is………inconsistent.  By now this is a broken record.  He has to turn it around at some point.  Better now than ever.  Go Brewers!!
