CC writes same story in 9-3 win

Another day, same story.
Monday evening, CC Sabathia got the start against the Astros, his 9th since joining the Brewers. And, as has happened 7 times prior to Monday night, CC got the win. CC also pitched a complete game (his 5th since joining the Brewers), and drove in a pair of runs.
Besides CC, Ray Durham, J.J. Hardy, and Corey Hart each had multiple RBI’s on the night, feasting on southpaw Randy Wolf, who allowed 6 ER’s over 4 IP.
With the Cubs having the night off, the Crew gained a half game in the NL Central race.

    I’m all for pushing a rental pitcher a little farther than normal, but 130 pitches in a 9-3 game seems like a little much to me.

    I think–just a guess–that Yost likes all the chatter surrounding Sabathia pitching a complete game…of course, Sabathia doesn’t probably mind too much, either, as it increases his market value.
    Yost also likes to have a refreshed bullpen, e.g. all relievers available to him when he needs it…I think that when he heads into a game knowing that Villanueva pitched 2 innings the day before and Riske pitched an inning the day before, he somehow feels tied to only be able to use the other relievers, at least at the start.
