Moore (8-0) gave up one run, struck out three and walked one to become the first eight-game winner in the majors. Moore has won nine straight, breaking the franchise record of eight set last year by Price.
If that wasn’t impressive enough take note that at the age of 23-years-old he is the youngest lefty to start the season 8-0 since Babe Ruth did it in 1917 at age 22.
”Pitching wasn’t the issue today,” manager Buck Showalter said. ”It was trying to solve Moore. He was the difference-maker.”
My Brew crew just can not get it together after losing again to the Cardinals.
”Certainly, it seems like we’ve been on the road for a month,” said Ryan Braun, who grounded into a double play with the bases loaded to end the seventh inning of a 4-2 loss to the St. Louis on Sunday. ”It wasn’t very much fun. We didn’t do many things well.”
Braun said there’s a good reason why the Cardinals’ 28 victories lead the National League, and why the Brewers need to step it up.
”It’s apparent why they’re winning — good pitching, good hitting and a good bullpen,” Braun said. ”They’re doing all the things well that we’re not doing well.”
Lohse (1-5) called baseball a ”stupid game” and bemoaned a ”10-hopper up the middle” by Yadier Molina that drove in the Cardinals’ first run. Sorry my team isn’t helping you out Lohse, you’re a great player and I’d hate for the Brewers to lose you.
