Brewers Win Streak Improves to 9

The Milwaukee Brewers continue their winning ways by sweeping the Minnesota Twins and improving their current win streak to 9 games.

Game 1: Milwaukee 2 Minnesota 1
WP: Moose Haas (5-5, 4.75 ERA 6 Ks)
LP: Dave Goltz (6-8, 3.63 ERA, 5 Ks)
SV: Bob Galasso (1)

Moose Haas pitches his best game of the season, striking out 6 in 7.2 innings pitched.  Key play of the game was a Dick Davis two shot homer, to left center, which gave the Brewers enough runs to slip past the Twinkies.

Game 2: Milwaukee 4 Minnesota 3
WP: Bill Castro (2-2, 4.91 ERA, BS 2)
LP: Mike Bacsik (0-2, 5.03 ERA)

This game was a battle all the way into the last of the ninth.  Tied 3-3, Charlie Moore would come up with a 2 out single to drive in Paul Molitor from third for the winning run.  Both teams blasted 2 homers apiece.  Minnesota's Dave Edwards (1) and Roy Smalley (10) and Milwaukee's Cecil Cooper (13) and Sixto Lezcano (12) all had long balls leave the park.  Bill Travers threw a gem of a game striking out 7 Twins batters in 8 innings of work before being replaced by Bill Castro to finish things off.  Castro blew the save but would eventually pick up the win.

Game 3: Milwaukee 15  Minnesota 2
WP: Mike Caldwell (12-3, 3.62 ERA)
LP : Gary Serum (0-3, 15.22 ERA)

Caldwell goes the distance, Brewers wrack up 17 hits, including 4 homers.  Not much else to say about this one.
