Now I know the Milwaukee Brewers have struggled most of the year, but one team the Brewers play well against at Miller Park is the Pittsburgh Pirates. That tradition continued as the Brewers beat the Pirates by a score of 8-6 and notch their 19th straight over the Pirates at Miller Park.
The Brewers got started early in the game with a five run first inning with Prince Fielder going deep for his 36th home run of the year. Ryan Braun and Jason Bourgeois also hit home runs to help the Brewers get the win. The Brewers have a good offense the problem is it only shows up half the time. Fielder and Braun continue to hit the ball well for the Brewers. Fielder is having an MVP year, but with the Brewers not contending he really does not have much of a chance to get it.
Manny Parra was the recipient of the Brewers offense last night even though his pitching was not up to par last night. Parra went 6.0 innings gave up 10 hits and six earned runs in the win. He walked four and struck out only two , but had plenty of offense to get the win. The bullpen did a good job for a change last night and Trevor Hoffman picked up his 28th save of the season and his saves in his career now stand at 582. Let’s hope the Brewers can continue to win this weekend. I would just like to see some consistency from the Brewers for awhile.
