On a day that was perfect for baseball – sunny and 77 degrees at first pitch, the Milwaukee Brewers were just 9 innings from another major milestone. With the score 2-0 in the top of the ninth Brewer Reliever K-rod entered the game just needing 3 outs for the save and got them.

  1. Way to go K-Rod! Now the brewers should get thier head out of the sand and package Axford, Weeks and Ramirez for a starting pitcher. The selling and buying season is just about open in major league baseball!
