Pitching Carries Team

The Milwaukee Brewers can thank their pitching staff for their solid 12-6 record against strong competition over the last three weeks. Back on May 3rd, the Brewers had the worst starting staff earned run average in the National League at five-point-49. Since then Milwaukee pitching has been the best in the league with an E-R-A of one-point-95. A seven-game winning streak in the first week-and-a-half of May helped the Brewers get to where they are now — tied for the most wins in the Central Division with 28 and only a game-and-a-half behind the Chicago Cubs as they host Philadelphia tonight (Friday).
