09/15/06 - Brewers (Ohka) @ Nationals (Ortiz) 6:05pm CT


Milwaukee Brewers (66 - 80)

Tomo Ohka RHP (4-5, 4.83/1.36)


Ohka will face his former team for the first time since July 17, 2005, when he surrendered three runs in seven innings of a 5-3 Brewers win. Ohka pitched parts of five seasons with the Expos-turned-Nationals and had a falling-out with Washington manager Frank Robinson before the June 2005 trade that sent him to Milwaukee. Ohka is coming off a dismal start against the Astros at Miller Park, in which he surrendered six runs before recording an out in the third inning and walked five batters, four of whom scored..




Washington Nationals (63 - 83)

Ramon Ortiz RHP (1-13, 5.19/1.49)


Ortiz's pattern of inconsistency continued in his last outing, when he allowed seven runs in 6 1/3 innings at Colorado, and was unable to follow up on his near no-hitter in his previous start. Ortiz leads the staff in wins, innings and strikeouts, but also in walks, hits allowed, home runs and hit batters.

Dave Bush RHP (11-10, 4.44/1.16) @ Pedro Astacio RHP (3-5, 6.38/1.61)

Doug Davis LHP (10-10, 4.95/1.54) @ Billy Traber LHP (3-3, 7.75/1.64)

I think Washington has come up with the strategy to throw the guys with the worst ERA on the mound against us and hope for the best http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/laugh.gif .


We have to finish at .438 or better (7-9) to ensure we don't lose 90 games. This is a must win game!

i'm gonna be at the game tonight, so if you see a guy in a brewers hat near the lf foul pole, it's me and the wife...


Have fun. I was just at RFK last month. Probably the worst stadium that I've ever been to, and it's near the very, very bad part of Washington, but the stadium experience was really nice.


That being said, Go Brewers!

Can someone explain to Yost that Rivera has one hole in his game, throwing out runners? He has Miller catch Capuano who controls the running game by himself and has Rivera catch Sheets and now Ohka, two pitchers not that great with holding runners. Is it really that hard to see?


And Gwynn should be batting 8th.

They should have never benched him, just platooned him with Mench. I don't know how Yost didn't see that.


From day one after Lee, it should have been Hart - Gross/Clark - Jenkins/Mench. It would have made Mench not look so terrible.


EDIT: I honestly had no clue Nook Logan was still in baseball. Only Bowden.
