08/14/2006: Brewers (Bush) @ Pirates (Santos), 6:05PM CDT


Fike85

The Milwaukee Brewers (55-62) once again are looking to win their first road series since late July. Unfortunately they will be playing at PNC Park, where they have been the victims of several 4-game sweeps and are 15-34 overall.

 

The Pittsburgh Pirates (45-73) are well on their way to their 14th consecutive losing season. However, the Pirates have seemed to settle into the role of spoiler after sweeping the first-place Cardinals last season. Moreover, the Pirates will once again have an opportunity to thwart the Brewers attempt at their first winning season since 1992.

We never do well at PNC. We are cursed there and will be lucky to get 1 game out of it, despite the recent trend the Brewers have of not getting swept but only getting 1 out of 3.

 

With that said, I'm sure the Brewers will sweep this series just to tease us.

It is PNC and Victor Santos. I feel some really bad mojo coming on http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/frown.gif . I hope I'm wrong.

Apparently the spirit of Davey Lopes no longer lives in Milwaukee.

 

Walks are not okay anymore, especially when someone inferior is on deck. http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/frown.gif

That's funny. At the Wednesday game vs. the Cubs I told my dad that for me Opening Day represents the beginning of 6 months of misery.

Schroeder must be drinking in the booth. He calls this a very good outing by Bush? Maybe some of the runs were flukes as he said, but giving up a homer to the #8 hitter with 2 outs should automatically take you out of the "good outing" category. And 4 runs in 5 IP is not great. That's part of the problem, change the mind set. You think the Sox, or the Yankees, would call that a good outing? I don't think so.

 

Also, Schroeder says that putting Jenks in as a pinch-hitter right now is a tough decision for Yost as far as removing Bush from the game? No way. Bush was not sharp tonite and you had to pinch hit for him in that situation to try and get back in the game. That was a no-brainer in my opinion.

He went 5 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 0 BB, 2 K's.

 

I wouldn't call that a good outing either but its not a terrible one. He unfortunately gave up 2 HR's which has been his problem all year. He had only thrown 69 pitches and our rotation has put a lot of stress on the bullpen so it was a hard decision for Yost to remove him, I'm personally not a fan of the choice but thats just me.
