The story of this game is simple. Todd Coffey couldn’t shut the door against a terrible Astros team. Yes, Casey McGehee made an error, but it was possibly the hardest hit error that I’ve seen all year – Coffey’s not completely off the hook there. He’s simply not a shut down reliever – and never really has been – but unfortunately, Parra’s short, if decent, start put us in a bad situation.
Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart continued to hit, but Prince Fielder had a poor game, going hitless against the myriad of Astros pitchers the Brewers saw tonight.
This loss really hurts, as both the Cardinals and the Reds won tonight.
