Hoffman Blows Save As Cardinals Stop Brewers 4-3
Trevor Hoffman is the all-time saves leader for a reason he gets people out most of the time. Yesterday, he couldn’t get the out he needed as Matt Holiday hit a two-run home run to give the St. Louis Cardinals a 4-3 win over the Brewers. You really cannot get on Hoffman about this he did make a low pitch and Holliday went down and got it. It was only the third blown save of the year for Hoffman who has pitched very well.
Manny Parra started the game for the Brewers, but had to leave with neck spasms and Carlos Villanueva and the bullpen stepped in and pitched very well. Besides the blown save the bullpen was outstanding as a whole. The Brewers used eight pitchers yesterday to tie a club record and still did not get the win.
Prince Fielder hit his 38th home run to give the Milwaukee Brewers an early lead, but they could not make it last. Fielder is now just one RBI away from tying the club record held by Cecil Cooper. Milwaukee CF Mike Cameron missed his third consecutive game with a tight hamstring and Corey Hart was back from the disabled list. He pinched hit and played the field for the Brewers. Jeff Suppan will start today in an afternoon game and hopefully the Brewers can get a win against the Cardinals.
