Casey McGehee Helps Brewers Avoid Sweep In St. Louis


The numbers speak for themselves CaseyMcGehee is hitting .299 with 13 homers and 49 RBIs in 89 games and yesterday he continued that with a home run that help life the Brewers to a 4-3 win at St. Louis. This is an example of a Brewers player who should be given the opportunity to start and play everyday. He has proven what he can do and should start rest of the season at least.

Manny Parra got the win for the Brewers as he pitched into the seventh inning which is rare for Brewers pitchers these days. Parra only gave up two earned runs and five hits so it was another good outing for him. Trevor Hoffman came in and grabbed his 30th save of the season for the Brewers who avoided a sweep with this win.

Offensively, Casey McGehee was the hitting star of this series. He was 5 for 11 at Busch Stadium with two homers in a 72-hour span. The key is with Fielder and others ahead of hitting hitting well he is getting some good pitches to look at and that makes a world of difference.  Since the Brewers are basically out of the playoffs it’s time they build for the future and see if certain guys fit into their plans. This is the time to do it when you are out of the playoff race. Build for next season right now and see what you have.
