Brewers 5, Astros 0: Ron Roenicke's Postgame Comments

As seen on FS Wisconsin.

On facing Brett Myers:

I thought we were really patient, the at bats were good. It's hard to get him deep in pitch counts, and we got a lot of pitches in the innings he was out there and I know he's usually used to being out there for seven-plus (innings), so we did a real nice job with him.

Asked if any of the home runs were wall-scrapers:

No, yeah they were hit. It's kind of hard to figure out the wind today, where it was blowing, it makes it interesting.

About Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder getting hot in April:

They sure have. You want your run production to come out of the 3-4-5 sometimes 6, and that's where it's been. It's been with those two guys, Casey (McGehee)'s had some big hits behind Prince, and those guys in front need to keep getting on. If they keep getting on base with those guys hitting behind, we're going to score a lot of runs.

On Tal's Hill:

You're running full speed, you know it's coming because you do hit the warning track, so it's not like that grass is just all of a sudden stays grass and you've got the hill, but you know once you're running like that on the track it's coming up, and your footing has to be, you've gotta realize that you may come up short a bit because you're going up the hill. It makes it tough.

Asked if he's ever amazed by Fielder and Braun:

I don't know, I've seen some really good players for a long time. When you're with them every day, and you see what they have been doing every day, yeah, it's pretty impressive. And they're both very patient at the plate, which that combination doesn't usually happen.  The guys that are patient, that don't chase balls out of the zone but can also hit for power and average like they've been doing this month, it's rare to see that.

On Fielder's collision with Brett Wallace:

No, it doesn't look good. But Prince is going to be a little sore too. Any time you hit a guy that hard you're going to be a little sore. 

Well, I was glad to see him standing up and peeling off his gloves and looking like he's ok.
