A Tough Road Trip For The Brew

The Brew is taking it on the chin on this current road trip. After my boys and I checked out last Sunday's game at Shea, a tough 9-1 flogging at the hands of the Mets, the Crew headed to Phili where they have lost the first two games of a four game series.

After blowing a 6-2 lead and losing 8-6 on Monday, the Brewers lost a tough one 4-3 last night.
Derrick Turbow took the loss in both games.

162 game season is one long season. Every team is going to experience some tough times. Apparently, this is one of those times for the Brew. As a team, the Crew is struggling at the plate and starting to get some inconsistency out of their pen, Derrick Turbow the most recent culprit.

It would be nice to see Rickie Weeks break out of his current funk and get back to setting the table for the boppers and scoring some runs. If Rickie continues to struggle, Maybe Ned might want to consider moving him down in the lineup to say 7th or 8th and let Tony Gwynn lead off for a game or two.

I certainly don't think it's time for Yost and the Brewer faithful to push the panic button. This is a quality team and quality teams find a way to end losing streaks and get back on track.

Hopefully the "Soup Can" pitches well tonight and the bats start warming up. Let's see this losing streak end at three games.

Go Brewers!

What say you?
