Winning 2 of 3 at San Diego was a big boost for the Brewers. Now the Brewers have a 4 game series at St. Louis this weekend. While a sweep or 3 of 4 would be ideal for the Brewers I'd settle for a split so the Cards don't gain any ground. Pitching for Milwaukee are Lauer, Woodruff, Houser, and Burnes. Throwing for St. Louis are Wainwright, Hudson, Liberatore and Mikolas. After Sunday the Brewers head to the Scrubbies.

They play 155 billion games in baseball, no games are important until Septemberish
Wins are just as important now as any time, especially against our biggest divisional threat. Need to get 75-80 wins to make September games matter. Can’t rely on otherworldly hot streaks at the end of the season to propel to the post season like the Cardinals did last year.
Off to a good start with a 4-3 win. Every starter had a hit too.
look at last year - cardinals won about 15 in a row in September but couldn’t catch the Brewers due to the large lead they had partly due to wins in the early season.
With the recent rash of injuries and Haders personal issues I’d say starting this road trip 3-1 against the level of competition they’ve faced is huge.
The Brewers ran out of gas toward the end of last year, but in reality they didn’t have a playoff caliber offense or Devin Williams and both issues caught up with them v Atlanta.
I do think STL will be in the mix so like everything else the Brewers just need to be competitive. Beat the teams you should and don’t get swept by the good teams and they should be OK.
It’s early but I am a lot more encouraged by their hitting this year.
Bases loaded twice and nothing? C’mon.
Bad loss today. Hopefully Burnes can at least get us a split on Sunday.
Gotta get the split.
Burnes is dealing so far. 5 Ks in 3 perfect innings.
Brewers have gotten 1 run.
Boom. Peterson with a 3 run HR in the 5th. Brewers up 4-0.
Getting some pay back for last night. 6-) Brewers, top of 7. Tellez and Peterson with bombs. Burnes pitcking like a Cy Young winner, 2 hits thru 6.
And now Cain with a 2 run homer in the 8th. 8-0 Crew.
And a final, 8-0 Brew Crew. Goldschmidt had a single in the 9th off Suter, but that was his only hit today. I really wanted them to hold him hitless. On to Chicago. Sweep the Scrubbies.
Wife got me an early fathers day gift this week. Rooftop tickets on Memorial Day to watch the Brewers. Was a really fun back and forth game and I got to see Williams and Hader. No complaints. Well, two complaints.
1. Forgot sunscreen. The tops of my knees are still angry.
2. Parking. Parked in a lot about 1/2 mile away. Parked under the L tracks. Big mistake. It was a really warm day and my car ended up with "L juice" all over it. What's L juice? Here's a story about it. I had to use brake cleaner to get that shit off my car.
