Yovani Gallardo Hits Third Home Run of the Season | Astros VS Brewers Game Three Tonight

Yovani Gallardo hit home run number three of the season last night. He gave up four runs to the lowly Astros, but no matter, The Brewers pulled it out. Game three is tonight.
Let's go back to Monday Night. I would have thought that a comfortable three run lead was all that the Brewers needed in order to win game one. By the top of the eighth, I was ready to vomit. Brewers go down in flames in game one.
Okay, now I have that sour taste in my mouth, as game two began last night. The Crew goes up by five, and I'm not falling for it again. Sure enough, the Astros score three in the top of the fifth. Both teams score a run in the sixth, and I'm starting to feel pretty good when Axford takes the mound in the ninth. Astros score one, Axford gives up a double, walks a man, and I'm tempted to tourn off the radio. A ground out ends the game. Axford has eight saves on the season.

Milwaukee Brewers and Jeff Suppan Part Company | Brewers VS Rangers at Miller Park


Brewers Release Jeff Suppan

The Milwaukee Brewers released Jeff Suppan on June 7, and Miller Park fans have no problem with that. Suppan, the former Cardinal pitcher nabbed a $42 million dollar contract when he came to Milwaukee and he will be heading back to St. Louis of all places. As of this morning, there was no signed contract, but he did hop on a jet to Arizona.

The Cards want to check him out physically, and then see what they can work out deal-wise. Dave Duncan sees something in Jeff Suppan that the Brewers did not. As this game is certainly mental as well as physical, Jeff might find his old team to be the tonic. Brewers fans just don't care.

Brewers VS Rangers at Miller Park

As we watched the Brewers VS Rangers at Miller Park, we were pleased to see Chris Narveson pitch to the seventh inning, give up only two runs, and improve his record to 5-3. The air was thick but that didn't keep the Brewers batters from hitting the long ball. Ryan Braun, Corey Hart, Prince Fielder, and Casey McGehee all hit homers in the 6-2 victory. This makes four of the past five games wins for Milwaukee.

Tonight, Manny Parra takes to the mound. For the Rangers, Scott Feldman will be the starting pitcher. The Brewers have their work cut out for them, but if they keep this pace, it might once again be enjoyable to watch the Brew Crew.
