Why, oh why, did Ned Yost alter the program that's been working pretty much all season? Scott Linebrink induces the double play to end the 7th inning, JJ Hardy gets the home run to put the Brewers ahead. Normally then, it's Turnbow for the 8th and Cordero for the 9th.
Why then, did he send Linebrink back out there for the 8th? That just makes no sense to me. I can see altering the lineup to get more production, and his shakeups usually work. But this made no sense, and ultimately cost the Brewers the game.
This is getting embarrassing, and it has to stop pretty damn quick if the Crew plans to make any kind of run at the postseason. The Cubs have not crumbled as everyone predicted, and the Cardinals are not the joke they seemed to be at the beginning of the season. Something's gotta give.
