No WAY the bullpen can mess that up!

It’s been a pretty good 3 days here in the Girl’s View household. My nails are growing back, my fantasy team is barrelling towards the top of the standings and My Boys are coming back to Milwaukee with their heads held as high as they can possibly hold them. Life is indeed good.

Not only did the Crew boast outstanding starting pitching in this Pittsburgh series, but their offense came alive, got hot and then sizzled for the series finale. These three games marked the first sweep for the Brewers, as well as the first opening game win, which proved to be all-important in keeping the momentum going.

I won’t go into all the details of the brutal beating the Pirates took this week, but I will throw out some numbers because I still am just in shock as to how this possibly happened. Although, as I Tweeted last night, the Brewers were due and clearly, the Pirates early success was just a fluke.

Total Runs Scored:

Brewers – 36

Pirates – 1

 

Brewers Hits Totals:

1B – 22

2B – 12

3B – 4*

HR – 8**

*Alcides Escobar hit both triples in Wednesday night’s game

**Prince Fielder finally got the monkey off his back. (And got me 4 points!)

 

Ryan Braun:

Raised his AVG from .367 to .381 during the series

Went 3-4 with  HR, 2B, 3 R, 5 RBI, BB, SB – in Thursday’s game alone

 

Thursday’s Pitchers:

Brewers starter: Randy Wolf

Used 3 relievers, most pitches thrown in relief: Claudio Vargas, 20

Pirates starter: Daniel McCutchen

Used 5 relievers, least pitches thrown in relief: Brendan Donnelly, 20

 

Soooooo anyways, the Brewers are back in Milwaukee to face the Cubs over the weekend. Tomorrow the girls and I will be in attendance and, even with the successes in Pittsburgh, all I can think about is how the last time I saw Jeff Suppan pitch against the Cubs, it was like the worst game I’ve ever witnessed. Buuuuut, at the same time, I can’t let that get me down because, Hello???? Look at those numbers! It’s improbable the Crew can keep going to this extent, but keeping pitching and offense in sync is their best bet for continuing on this winning path.

So, keep it up!

Go Brewers!

Cubs still suck!
