The ship must be righted! We speculated (wishfully, perhaps) that Brady Clark would get a day off in favor of Corey Hart, but instead Rickie Weeks and JJ Hardy get the rest. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad to see Jeff Cirillo near the top of the order--I would hope that he might at least watch some pitches. If we're going to beat Jeff Suppan (or just about any other credible pitcher), the top of the order can't go up hacking.
Afternoon game today: 12:10 CT. Still no FSN coverage, which means that I, with MLB.TV will have to choose between the announcing team of Joe Buck and Al Hrabosky, and the mute button. Oh, mute button, how I love you.

Update [2006-4-13 16:55:7 by Jeff]: 4-3 win for the Brewers in 11 innings! It was stressful, and many Brewers didn't look very good at the plate, but the pitching held up, and Carlos Lee saved the day. El Caballo made a great catch to save a HR in the bottom of the 10th, then led off the 11th with a solo shot off of Isringhausen. Davis, Lehr, and Wise were all quite good; Kolb was very shaky (he gave up the saved HR) and Turnbow...well, he got the job done. We move back up to 6-3 and head off to Shea. Chris Capuano tomorrow, and in case you've forgotten: Ben Sheets on Sunday!
