What we learned: May 16, 2014

Jeffrey Phelps

Quick day of lessons today, which include team defense, projecting wins, and unwritten rules.

Yesterday's Results

Brewers 4, Pirates 3

Four home runs accounted for the early scoring, as each team hit two home runs while the Pirates built a 3-2 lead. It came down to the bottom of the ninth, as Ryan Braun hit a single and Jonathan Lucroy and Mark Reynolds walked to load the bases with no outs. Khris Davis followed them up with an RBI single to send the Brewers home with a walk-off.

With the early game yesterday and the Brewers traveling afterwards, it was a very quiet news day for the Brewers yesterday.  Here's the few news items for today.
