One of the great things about baseball is the way it surprises you sometimes.

Dave Bush has not been a very good pitcher this season and I wasn't very optimistic about his chances against the Angels tonight. Yet somehow he posted one of his best outings of the season, limiting a good offensive team to one run on seven hits in 7.1 innings, striking out one and walking nobody. The outing was his longest since April 23 of 2009.

At the plate, the Brewers won with a true team effort: Jonathan Lucroy, Alcides Escobar, Jim Edmonds, Ryan Braun and Craig Counsell all had multi hit games and each scored at least one run. Most of those runs were driven home via a two run shot by Prince Fielder and a 3-run double from Corey Hart, who tied Casey McGehee for the team lead in RBI.

The same two teams meet tomorrow in a twilight getaway day game, scheduled for 6:05 Central time.
