Odds and ends…

Brewers PR man Mike Vassallo must have had plenty of coffee on the team’s charter flight to Washington DC because today’s game notes are particularly chock full of tidbits. Cutting and pasting at will here…

TV and Radio schedule
Due to Milwaukee Bucks NBA playoff games, the Brewers have been moved from FS Wisconsin to WMLW for their televised games next Tuesday at Pittsburgh and on 4/26 vs. Pittsburgh…..the team’s radio games on Tuesday at Pittsburgh and 4/24 vs. Chicago-NL will be moved from WTMJ 620 AM to 94.5 Lake FM.
LOB
The Brewers left 15 runners on base in their 8-6 win yesterday at Chicago, marking the 41st time in team history that they left at least 15 on base…..the team had not left that many on base in a 9-inning game since a 9-3 win on 5/10/03 at Cincinnati.
Check the Board
The Brewers have used a different lineup in each of the first 9 games of the season.
We’re Going Streaking!
Rickie Weeks (.333, 2hr, 7rbi) has hit safely in each of his first 9 games this season…..he is looking to become just the fifth player in franchise history to open the season with a hitting streak of at least 10 games…..listed are the players to accomplish the feat (Elias):
Player/Year… Streak
Dickie Thon (1993) . . . . . . . . . . . .13 games
Steve Hovley (1970) . . . . . . . . . . .10 games
Dale Sveum (1987) . . . . . . . . . . . .10 games
Ronnie Belliard (2000) . . . . . . . . .10 games
Hoff the Charts
Trevor Hoffman needs 7 saves for 600 in his career…..the all-time saves leader enters today’s game with 593 career saves…..Hoffman also needs just 11 appearances to become the 14th pitcher in Major League history to pitch in 1,000 career games…..a look at pitchers Hoffman is approaching on the all-time games pitched list (Elias):
Pitcher… Appearances
11. Roberto Hernandez . . . . . . . . . . . .1,010
12. Mike Jackson . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .1,005
13. Goose Gossage . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .1,002

End of cut and paste. I’m not with the team in D.C. but I’ll be back on Tuesday for the series-opener in Pittsburgh. Until then…
