Almost Dave Bush. Almost.

Sad. Dave Bush took a no-hitter into the 8th inning when he gave up a solo home-run to former Brewer Matt Stairs to end the no-hit bid and the shut-out. It was Stairs’ 16th pinch-hit home run.

On the upside, Bush was at 115 or so pitches when it happened and was only at 7 1/3 innings, meaning he would have had to have been super economic with his pitches for it to have made sense for us to leave him in to complete the game.

As bad as our pitching is, it wouldn’t have been worth the risk of injury to our most solid/consistent of the past few seasons.

Man, what a game. Yesterday I wrote about the TTM autograph card I just got back from him. Love me some Bushy. I hope Parra was watching the game today, geez...
