Tuesday’s Game: Brewers 4, Astros 2
Record: 25-14, 1st Place

Tuesday’s Game

- 7 in a row! This is quite a run!

- Bush had two runs scored off of him in the fourth, but that was it as the staff didn’t allow another one the rest of the night including another perfect inning by Trevor Hoffman.

- Hardy knocked in two, and Fielder and McGehee both added an RBI (McGehee’s first of the year)

Brewers News

- FanGraphs say no Rickie Weeks? No Problem… I say we’ll see. The Brewers already had problems making Rickie into a leadoff man and he finally looked comfortable.

- InBetweenHops thinks everyone should calm down too.

- Provus says that injuries are just part of the game and seems excited to see what happens next.

- The Doorman shrieks like Kerrigan from the news about Rickie.

- Eli and other rumor mills believe the Brewers should be interested in Mark DeRosa. Tyler salivates.

- Ray Durham is also staying fit and is ready for a call.

- But, the Brewers are first going to test their infield depth starting with Hernan Irribarren who was hitting very well in AAA.

- McCalvy twits or tweets, whatever, that the Brewers should let Irribarren play more this time.

- Gallardo hopes he isn’t rusty since the last time he started, it was only for two innings.

- Braun talks about Favre. He’s sick of it too, but can’t help but keep up on the news.

- The Courier Press runs a fun little article on Mitch Stetter. It’s very easy to like this young lefty.

- Vinny Rottino approves of the Mat Gamel

- Corey Hart also does an infomercial for Soup’s bar and grill on how to field in the outfield.

- Trevor Hoffman and Jason Kendall didn’t hit up the clubs after Kendall’s 2,000th hit…no…they brought out some commemorative bubbly and toasted like gentlemen.

- Quevedo at the Buffet pretty much sums it up.

- Well it’s not the mug, but Bernie’s going to be getting wet and wild thanks to the Kalahari.

Minor Leagues

- Jeremy Jeffress was demoted back to Brevard County.

- Green has done so well with the T-Rats, that he probably won’t be back with them when they come back to Appleton…but we knew that would happen already.

- Brew Crew Ball interviews Cutter Dykstra.

- A quick look at Huntsville’s manager Bob Miscik.

- Get to know Tim Dillard.

NL Central

- Piniella wants to keep playing the slumping Fontenot…maybe Theriot should just give Mike whatever he’s been using.

- Khalil Greene will be used as more of a utility player and this Padres blog celebrates their team finally winning in a trade.

- Joey Votto needs to be examined because of some strange dizziness he’s been feeling.

Other News

- Jack Z has pounced on Brad Nelson. Not surprised…and Brad’s already hitting about as much as Richie Sexson this season.

- Todd Helton has 2,000 hits now too!
