Why wouldn't Macha have pulled a double switch there? Don't the Brewers have another SS?

Wait a second.

Karstens gave up 5 hits. Two solos and a 3 run dinger. Only 5 hits. In retrospect he gives the team a chance.

Monroe got some runs in folks. Give it a rest.

ZM


I don't care if he only gave up three hits, if all three are homers, he's not pitching well. They're in the game despite him, not because of him.

The Brewers just burned a reliever by not pulling a double switch.

Why wouldn't they walk Weeks to set up a double play?

Good job Yates. I'm losing faith in him. I liked him alot last year, but this year he has a high ERA, he walks alot of batter, and we can't rely on if we are going to get the strikeout pitching Yates or the Yates we have saw tonight.

I think they were afraid of loading the bases, with Yates' control problems. He was likely to walk in a run.

Good grief this is an ugly game. I'm glad we came back but this inning really hurts.

I understand the logic of going after Hall but I think that I would've taken my chances with the intentional walk. Hart isn't exactly on fire tonight.

That hurt ... not having the regular RF'er stung. Hinske has produced with the bat but his defense was not up to par right there.

Guys on the radio said that Hart was sitting on the change-up and "blocked" that ball into right field.

Why was Freddy playing what appeared to be in on Fielders "hit"?

He gave it a full swing, but let the ball get deep. He was looking offspeed, that is for sure. It was a humpback liner that Hinske could not reach.
