Today's game wasn't exactly a defensive clinic.  The two teams combined for four errors and, if we counted only earned runs, the Brewers would have won just 3-2.  Though there were a couple web gems from the Brewers late in the game.

Dave Bush turned in a very solid outing, going six innings giving up two earned runs and striking out seven hitters.  Kameron Loe followed that up with two flawless innings and Trevor Hoffman finished the game in the ninth.  Casey McGehee had a nice day, going 2-3 with a double and a three-run homerun (that HR accounted for all the earned runs that the Nationals gave up today).

All in all a nice little sweep of the Nationals as the Brewers improved to 47-53, just six games under .500 now.  Up next:  The NL Central co-leader Cincinnati Reds.
