Brewers 4, Braves 0: Perhaps The Sky Isn’t Falling

This is why Yovani Gallardo is awesome, but it’d be nice if Ken Macha wasn’t trying to make his arm fall off.

Gallardo threw 7.1 scoreless innings, outdueling the previously unbeaten Tommy Hanson and driving in a run of his own at the plate in a 4-0 Brewers win.  Gallardo only allowed 4 hits against the Braves, a team that pounded out 17 the night before.  Yo also struck out 6, but walked 4 — the result being a too-high-for-comfort pitch count before Macha finally pulled the plug.

Todd Coffey and Mitch Stetter went the remaining 1.2 innings without allowing a baserunner.  Felipe Lopez returned to the lineup after missing a pair of games due to hamstring soreness, but went 1-for-5. 

Before the game it was announced that Seth McClung will be heading to the 15-day DL after leaving last night’s game with elbow soreness.  The soreness is a cause for concern due to the fact that it’s in the same elbow that McClung had surgically repaired.  In his place, Tim Dillard was called up from AAA, and he will presumably take the rotation spot formally occupied by Mike Burns, who shifts into McClung’s long relief role.

The Brewers go for a series win tomorrow.

    The Braves have already been shutout 3 times to Milwuakee this season.Total disappointment?Of course.Good for the Braves in the long run if they get into October?Of course because anything has always been possible in October and those 2006 Cardinals come to mind at all times,and the Braves are totally capable of turning the table if they sneak into the postseason.The Cards upset those Tigers in the 2006 world series and I can somewhat see the Braves upsetting those Boston RedSox in the world series in 2009 if those 2 teams meet in the fall classic.GO BRAVOS.
