Last night, the Brewers were simply playing like gentlemen. You know, the Cubs aren't going to win very many games this year, and if Carlos Zambrano doesn't get a win now and then, who will? Now that we've allowed our weaker adversary one victory for the series, we can slam the door.
Dave Bush (5-6, 4.45) pitches against Carlos Marmol (1-3, 4.73). If that matchup sounds familiar, that's because it happened ten days ago, too. In that game, both Bush and Marmol pitched into the seventh, allowing only one run. (Bush's came on a Juan Pierre homer. Ugh.) In that game, Dan Kolb imploded and the Crew lost it, 6-3.
Fortunately, speaking entirely from anecdotal evidence here, it seems that the Brewers offense performs a lot better when they've seen a pitcher before. Marmol was new (and pretty nasty) last time around, but tonight he won't have the benefit of surprise.
