Series Recap: Brewers Versus Cubs
One run was the difference between the Brewers dropping two out of three to the rival Cubs–who aren’t expected to be any better than .500–and taking two out of three and continuing to reverse the early-season scuffles.
The series’ opener was rough, as a missed pop-up by Rickie Weeks led to a five-run fourth inning in an eventual 7-4 loss on Friday.
However, the Brewers struck back on the power of Prince Fielder’s bat on Saturday, handing the Cubs a 6-0 loss.
On Sunday, Casey McGehee’s pinch-hit homer bailed out Yovani Gallardo and brought the Brewers to .500 at 5-5.
The takeaway from this series is that the Brewers’ offense is starting to click, and despite struggles from Gallardo and Randy Wolf on Friday, the starting pitching has been fairly solid.
So there’s a good chance that the Brewers are starting to climb out of the hole they dug themselves.
And perhaps the best news? The Pirates are next.
