The Fynal Out: Something Brewing?

Prince FielderThe Brewers headed to Arizona with one of the worst road records in the majors.

Plus, the two teams had practically switched positions in their respective positions from a couple months ago.

But, the Brewers made a statement Monday night, putting up 6 runs in the first two innings against the Diamondbacks’ Doug Davis — and holding the Arizona offense to 5 hits and no runs.

So while everyone’s now watching the defending World Series champs and the Cubbies, the Brewers may not be the giant disaster everyone thought if they can win a series in the desert.

Brewers 9, Diamondbacks 0: Ben Sheet’s replacement Yovani Gallardo went 6 shutout innings for the Brew Crew, then gave way to 3 hitless innings by reliever Carlos Villanueva. Villanueva’s reward? He was optioned to Triple-A Nashville after the game.

Cardinals 6, Cubs 4: In another slippery and soggy day at Wrigley Field, St. Louis managed to avoid the sweep (after a 1 1/2 hour delay) behind Scott Rolen’s 3 RBI. The Cubs’ three-game win streak was snapped, despite 3 home runs.

Mariners 9, Twins 4: No one’s rolling like the M’s (who’ve won 4 in a row). Raul Ibanez went yard twice in the first 3 innings, and Richie Sexson and Kenji Johjima each added their own shot to give Seattle all it needed early.
