Hey look, we lost again.


Dave Bush pitched reasonably well tonight, going six innings and allowing three runs. He did, however, walk 4 Phillies and allow 9 hits. A very typical Dave Bush start.

The Brewers really couldn't solve Cole Hamels tonight; I seem to remember a lot of pop-ups. Hamels held the Crew scoreless for the first 5 innings before giving up back-to-back solo home runs to Casey McGehee and Corey Hart. Overall, scoring opportunities were few and far between tonight. Corey Hart was about five feet away from a grand slam in the first inning and Casey McGehee grounded into a double play with two on and nobody out in the eighth inning. That's about it.

But you know what, gang, small victories. The bullpen did not implode tonight. Mitch Setter and Trevor Hoffman each pitched scoreless innings and Todd coffey and Carlos Villanueva would have pitched a scoreless inning if not for a wild pitch by Villanueva. 


Join us again tomorrow as the Brewers take on the suddenly first place Reds at 6:10.
