Milwaukee Brewers: 250 Words or Less 5/14/11
It’s a weekend of pinch hitters as I step up to the plate to recap this afternoon’s Brewers action. We got to see the Brewers win, Prince’s 201st homerun, Braun’s first HR of May, Brandon Boggs’ first HR as a Brewer, a nifty 4-6-3 double play and seeing Ryan Doumit get hit in the nuts about 5 times if you were watching the FSN Broadcast. Chris Narveson was solid through 6, getting out of some trouble in that inning and then the game opened up as the ‘Crew hung 5 runs on the Pirates although one of those may be debatable as it looked like Hart was out at the plate but called safe. Don’t think we’ll complain too much about that.
Minus the HR that Mitch Stetter gave up in the 8th all in all a pretty solid performance for the ‘Crew as they take down the Pirates 8-2. Looking forward to tomorrow the Brewers have an opportunity to get the season’s first sweep of the year with Greinke making his second start at Miller Park which I am sure will be to capacity. Also, just because, I think I’ll add a component to the 250 or less recaps and add a PD250 Player of the Game. So tonight’s recipient is Prince Fielder for breaking the deadlock in the 4th. Think someone else is more deserving? Let me know in the comments.
