Brewers running out of arms for Sunday tilt against Twins

05.22.2010     10:04 PM     Printer Friendly

The Sportsmemo Blog has been your No. 1 source for all that is Milwaukee Brewers' pitching failures. We certainly commend Saturday's effort as the Brew Crew put up five runs in the ninth to take a one-run lead over the Twins only to give up the tying run in the bottom of the inning. That run prolonged the game to 12 innings and took Sunday's slated starter Manny Parra out of the mix as he was forced to throw – and eventually got tagged with the loss. As for Sunday, Milwaukee goes to battle with Marco Estrada who has made exactly one career start and sports a lifetime ERA of 6.38. Overnight lines currently list Estrada as a +160 underdog against Carl Pavano.  
 

The Twins led 4-0 in the first, but Milwaukee (16-27) scored five times in the ninth, taking the lead off Jon Rauch who blew his second save in 12 chances. However, Minnesota scored in the ninth to force extras and Jason Kubel hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 12th off Manny Parra.  
 
The Brewers’ pitching woes haven’t been limited to their struggles against Mauer and the Twins. Milwaukee has lost 11 of 12 and it has a 7.43 ERA over that stretch. The bullpen is responsible for four of those defeats, posting a 9.27 ERA over the 12 games. 
 
With Parra pitching Saturday, the Brewers will turn to Marco Estrada (0-0, 6.23 ERA) on Sunday for his second major league start. 
 
The right-hander has appeared in 16 games over three seasons, including two with the Nationals. In his second relief appearance this season, he threw 21 pitches in the seventh inning Saturday, retiring one batter while giving up two hits and one walk. 
 
For more relief, the Brewers recalled left-hander Zach Braddock from Triple-A Nashville after the game and optioned lefty Mitch Stetter.
