Braden Looper is not usually known for being that great of a pitcher, comparably he is also not that great of a batter.
Tonight he proved half of his critics wrong by having what many are calling a respectable night at the dish going 1-2 with an RBI and a run scored before getting pulled after six innings.
On the other hand he was only good enough in those six innings to get a win behind his offense tacking on eight earned on Marlins start Ricky Nolasco who got pulled after only 3.2 innings.
"Didn't Tom Glavine and John Smoltz say that chicks dig the long ball? Well I am going to try and get my own commercial saying, 'Screw the long ball, chicks really dig gap power!" Said Looper as he was still caressing his bat.
"People don't really give me credit for being an all around NL pitcher. I mean coming out of high school they called me a three tool athlete. Now, I can't really remember what those tools were I would say they were having an arm, a bat, and a Cadillac. Yeah my old Deville was sweet back in the day."
One player that took advantage of Looper's average night with his second or third best tool, his arm, was Marlins center fielder Alfredo Amezaga.
But it was a night where going 3-4 would not be enough as his teammates could only drive in the eight hole hitter once.
"I guess this really just sums up my career. I get on base, I don't get the red light for stealing a base. I go three for four, and no one is on base so I can get an RBI. How am I ever going to reach any incentive in my contract?" Said a saddened Amezaga.
"Sure losing hurts, but I wish sometimes that some of the guys would help me pad my stats every now and then."
But all tomfoolery aside, the Brewers bullpen pulled off another historic feat as the three relievers, Todd Coffey, Mitch Stetter, and Carlos Villanueva, between starter Looper and closer Trevor Hoffman became the first ever set of Brewers pitchers to each only pitch two outs in front of an all-time leader of saves.
Coffey said after the game about the achievement, "I didn't know they kept record of that thing, which makes me wonder how many historical firsts I have as a pitcher. If I had a guess probably it's in triple digits."
Game notes: The Italian Sausage won the Sausage race unharmed...Craig Counsell started at third and was moved to short because of a JJ Hardy head, yeah that Craig Counsell...Marlins reliever, Kiko Calero, continued his streak of six road appearances with someone making fun of his name, his personal best is eleven...To the surprise of many Brewers fans Marlins reliever, Renyel Pinto, did not come to the mound in his customary, Pinto...
