4/13 – 4/19 Brewers Week In Review

April 20, 2015

The Brewers are continuing to scuffle. They beat their nemesis in Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals in St. Louis on Monday, but have not won since. They fell to the Cards on Wednesday and Thursday, and then were swept in Pittsburgh over the weekend. They also lost OF Carlos Gomez to a hamstring injury.

Gomez strained his hamstring in the ninth inning on Thursday. He did manage to beat out the throw, but he came up limping and came out of the game. The Brewers placed him on the 15-day disabled list and brought up IF Jason Rogers. Losing Gomez is huge for a team that is already having problems scoring runs.

Manager Ron Roenicke tried to shake things up on Saturday by having OF Ryan Braun hit in the leadoff spot. This move worked out in the first, as Braun led off the game with a single and scored in the first. Unfortunately, they only scored one more run and lost 6-2.

The Brewers only scored more than 3 runs once this week, and they beat the Cardinals 5-4. They were outscored 23-9 in the next 5 games. Roenicke and his team are not panicking, but there is some urgency in the clubhouse.

“They’re tired of it. We’re tired of it. We need it to change,” Roenicke said. “Whatever you have to do to just get the job done. These are good players, and we need to get it done.”

Hopefully, for Brewer fans, they start getting the job done this week. This team is good, and they have a chance to make the playoffs, but that chance is getting smaller by the week.
