Yesterday's Results

Nationals 3, Brewers 0

The Brewers lost the opener of a 3 game series last night at Miller Park to the Nationals, getting shut out to snap the 4 game winning streak. The only scoring came when Matt Garza gave up a 3-run home run to Adam LaRoche in the third inning.

Cram Session

Power Rankings Tuesday

  • ESPN moves the A's and Brewers up to 1 and 2 and drops the Giants to 3rd. The Cardinals jump 2 spots to #6.
  • Same story in the top 3 at MLB.com, which has the Angels in 4th.
  • The top 4 is the same at Sports Illustrated, and the Cardinals show up in 5th place. Bringing up the rear are our good friends out in Arizona, the Diamondbacks.
  • Jonah Keri at Grantland sticks the Brewers at #2 in The 30, but also terrifyingly discusses the idea of a trade of David Price to St. Louis.
  • Fox Sports swapped the Giants and Brewers this week, giving A's, Brewers, Giants top 3 a sweep of the major media network power rankings this week.
  • Screwing up the sweep is Fansided, which has the Brewers in 3rd-- and though they say some nice things, they place more blame on the Dbacks and Rockies for the past week than they give credit to the Brewers.
