Game Thread #82: Brewers (37-44) at Cardinals (44-37)

Loading Scores

Avoid the split! Taking three games out of four from the Cardinals would be Suweeeeet!!, last night's win gave us 16 out of 22, when the Crew visit the Busch.  It's the first game in the second half for the Brewers today. 81-0, would probably punch our ticket for the post-season.

Instead of blowing off your fingers or toes, monkeying around with fireworks, and gas-grills, why don't you join us after the jump?

Today's pitching matchup, may be one of the best you are going to see all year. Yo Gallardo (8-3 2.56), is taking on Adam Wainwright, (11-5 2.34). Both pitchers are firmly entrenched in the top 10 in most NL pitching categories.

Corey Hart extended his hitting streak to 18 games last night. Along with Paul Molitor and Robin Yount, Hart is now the only Brewer to enjoy multiple hit streaks of at least 18 games as a Brewer. Hart is batting a solid .364 during this streak.

Richard Weeks got plunked yesterday, and still leads the NL in getting drilled, having taken 15 pitches in the ribs. Teammate Prince Fielder and his gravitational pull is second in the NL with 11 HBPs.
