After Mike Cameron help the Brewers build a lead he also had to help them get it back after they blew the lead. Cameron had four hits last night in helping the Brewers make it two in a row over the Washington Nationals by a 11-9 score.
The game started out well for the Brewers as they were up 7-2, but the lead would not last as in the third in the Nationals came back with four runs of their own. It was a back and forth battle all night long it seemed. Mike Cameron was the hitting star for the Brewers with four hits in six plate appearances. He hit a home run and drove in three runs to help pace the Brewers. Casey McGehee also chipped in with a big single in the sixth inning as well to help power the Brewers to the 11-9 win.
Pitching was something that did not fare too well on this night for either teams. The Brewers started Mike Burns, but he only lasted 3.0 innings and in total the Brewers would use six pitchers on the night with Trevor Hoffman getting his 27th save in 29 tries. This is a win the Brewers really needed as they have to string something together. Right now the Brewers sit 9.5 games back of St. Louis. If they want to make the playoffs they must win the division. Right now to many teams ahead of them in wild-card chase.
