________________________________________________

Bush took the loss in his last start against the Cubs on Sunday. He gave up four earned runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts as the Brewers dropped a 5-1 decision at Wrigley Field.

Entering Sunday's game, Bacsik was on a personal five-game losing skid and had a 7.41 ERA in his past five starts. He turned things around against Pirates, however, and was able to get his first win since April 24. The key to his success was simple: Bacsik kept the ball down and threw a lot of first-pitch strikes. He lasted six-plus innings and gave up two runs -- one earned -- on five hits, striking out two and walking one.

Looks like Manny took Dave's advice in switching Church and Kearns.

The radio guys were just talking about Braun and how hot he's been - that was quite a hit ...

That was a lucky break ... starting to look like batting practice though ... not a good start for Mike ...

this could be a long night for Mikey...hopefully we can hit Bush hard, since he is just as hittable as our guy

All of this with 2 outs ... brutal ... with our offense 4 seems like a mighty big number

Mike Bacsik, so bad.
There's GOTTA be somebody better/younger in AAA. I'd rather watch a 21/22 yr old pitch than a upper-20s journeyman.

And another automatic loss after the first half of the first inning! Bravo Bacsik!

Agreed, why not call up Fruto or Lannan?  Bacsik is worthless.  The Nats will be lucky to score 4 runs for the entire series if their offense keeps up their poor hitting.

Chances of Bacisk recovering and pitching well the rest of the game are slim to none. This game is setting up to end like the Tigers thrashing.

I've never seen a guy strike out looking on fastballs as much as Langerhans.. The announcers were talking about this the other night and how it pisses off Lenny Harris.
