Thursday’s 7-5 win over the Pirates was Ned Yost’s 300th career victory as skipper of the Brewers…the win also brought the Brewers’ record up to 9-6, heading into their weekend series against the Astros. Jeff Suppan had another decent start, lasting 6 innings, surrendering 3 ER’s on 6 hits, to earn his 2nd win of the season; of the 13 Brewers’ hits, J.J. Hardy and Kevin Mench has 3 apiece, while Hardy drove in 4. Derrick Turnbow struggled in the 8th, giving up 2 ER’s on 2 hits and 2 walks, but Coco Cordero struck out the side in the 9th to earn his 5th save on the year, and maintaining his 0.00 ERA. Next on tap: the Astros come in for three…the matchups: Friday: Matt Albers (0-0, –) vs. Ben Sheets (1-2, 5.85)…Albers has a 6.23 ERA this year…in AAA Saturday: Wandy Rodriguez (0-1, 2.77) vs. Chris Capuano (2-0, 2.81)…a pair of LHP’s off to good starts Sunday: Roy Oswalt (3-0, 2.89) vs. Dave Bush (1-1, 5.82)…can the Crew stop one of the NL’s top pitchers? Oswalt’s given up 1 ER in three of his starts…his three home starts. His one road start: 6 ER in 5 IP…in Philly.
