Wisconsin Boxscore

Back to .500 again as the offense was once again quiet, but the pitching was even quieter. Tom Jankins posted the longest start in the Brewers organization this year, going 7 2/3 innings. He allowed a run on 4 hits, 2 walks, and he struck out 5 batters. When Jankins is on, he gets ground balls, and get ground balls he did, recording 14 ground ball outs against 1 fly ball out. Dan Brown picked up a save for his second appearance in a row, logging the final 1 1/3 inning, whilst notching two strikeouts and issuing a walk.

No Rattler had more than one hit, though Trever Morrison made his a good one. In his return to the active roster, Morrison knocked his first career home run. Demi Orimoloye also had one hit, a single, but managed to walk twice as well. Tucker Neuhaus drove in the other run on a sac fly in the 6th. Nathan Rodriguez, while hitless, did record to excellent defensive plays to end innings and preserve the win.

Tristan Archer has been pretty darn impressive this year. I wonder if he'll eventually get a shot w/ the Brewers bullpen.

I've been assuming they had him at AA because they don't like how his stuff plays in the thin air. Maybe that's wrong; he isn't a high priority. But I think Stearns has said that they're thinking about atmospheric effects in placing pitchers at AA or AAA. It may be more likely that Wilkerson gets promoted directly from AA to the majors if they decide to give him a shot, which I'd love to see.

Medeiros ran out of gas, but was dominating a RH-heavy lineup (7 of 9 hitters). The last inning was a ERA buster, but he is at least back on the prospect map even if he is trending toward matchup reliever.

I missed Medeiros' last inning, which seems fortunate, but watched almost all of the rest of his outing. His fastball command was as good as I've ever seen it, and he's back up into the high 90s again after dipping last season. Still not incredibly impressed with his breaking ball, which I've seen variously referred to as a curve or a slider (I think it's a curve that breaks more like a slider due to arm angle), and his change up still has a ways to go as well. But man, it was exciting to see how well he was pitching last night.

I am nearly positive this is correct. He pitched well in AAA for the Brewers last year, but didn't have the results to back it up. He kind of is what he is as a pitcher, so I don't think it makes a big difference between AA and AAA for him.

Unless I missed it, nobody mentioned another perfect day for the organization. I believe that is number 4 already.
