Baseball, such as life, is a marathon, not a race. It’s important to keep this philosophy in mind as we look forward on the season of the Milwaukee Brewers. With an outstanding beginning of the season (5-0), the Milwaukee Nine have fallen steadily to a 9-10 record. With a hard road trip to St. Louis, New York and Houston, the Brewers brought a decent 3-6 record back to Milwaukee only to have a weekend series rollarcoastered to 1-3 series loss to Cinncinatti. The highlight being an 11-0 rout in which the Brewers tied a major league record 5 homerun 4th inning; the last time being 40 years ago. That of course was washed out in an anything-you-can-do-I-can-do-better 11-0 Reds rout of their own. The series wasn’t a complete loss as we also watched Ace starter Ben Sheets come through with a very strong outing Friday and David Bush’s 4 hit shutout in the record tying Saturday game.
