Cubs Leave Brewers Tapped

 chi-7brcubs-20140901

You know, there was a time when I mildly cheered for the Milwaukee Brewers. The “Brew Crew” “Roll Out The Barrel” enjoying a good brew every now and then, well it’s just like what Ben Franklin says, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy” and yes, it is a myth that Canadian beer is better than American beer. Both have some mighty fine brew.

Ryan Braun. That’s the reason why I can’t stand the Brewers. We all know what he needs to return and make an apology to children everywhere.

So the Cubs beating up on them really puts a smile on my face. if there was one team I can’t stand, it’s the Brewers.

Now the Cubs have some great heroes and Chicago has suddenly become a great place to play. Hometown heroes, that’s what it’s all about. Jorge Soler notched a pair of doubles.

“For a guy who just got called up, it seems like he has a good approach at the plate,” said Cubs starting pitcher Jacob Turner. “That’s what I’ve been most impressed with. Obviously, he has a lot of power, but I think that approach at the plate will be the biggest key for the future.”

Turner enjoyed his outing as well. The Cubs went on to beat the Brewers 4-2 and knocked the Brewers out of first place and Turner received his first win as a Cub.

“It’s definitely a step in the right direction,” Turner said of the outing. “I’m just happy I’ve been able to build on some of the stuff that me and pitching coach Chris Bosio have been working on. I made the pitches when I needed to when guys got on base, especially in the first inning. Getting through that catapulted me through the rest of the game.”

The Cubs have a .500 record at home. 33-33 it’s going to be an exciting September so if anyone were to ask me how the Cubs are doing this year?

Pretty damn good.

Believe it.

    This game I definitely watched! Always good to see a former Whitecap in the hill, and pitching well. Good win for the Cubs.
