The Milwaukee Brewers won their 2009 opener in dramatic fashion, beating their arch rival Cubs 4-3 yesterday. Rickie Weeks tied the game in the botton of the ninth inning with a ringing double to leftfield and then scored the winning run with a headfirst slide at home plate.
The Brewers collected only four hits in the game, but some how came away with a very big win. It sure felt like the Crew was about to take one on the chin, especially since they hadn't had a hit since the fourth inning. Maybe winning in such a dramatic fashion will get the offense going.
Let's hope the Crew get their bats going today and are able to beat up on Carlos Zambrano.
