So what happens when your offense can’t maintain it’s 10.0 runs per game average while your pitching continues to scuffle?
High powered offenses can’t consistently pump out gaudy run totals day after day. They just don’t. Good pitching beats good hitting. And even the best hitters can’t always find the holes.
Whether it was John Denny‘s greatness, a matter of bad luck or a combination, the Brewers never had a shot today. Denny was given a 3-0 fourth inning lead, and the Brewers bats struggled to squeeze out two runs on a total of seven hits. Not a single Brewer batter collected more than a hit.
