A Trip to Milwaukee-- Part 10: The Brewer Game and Rain

The Brewers were playing the Miami Marlins, another last place team.  Like I said, the Marlins scored 3 runs in teh first, then added another 4 in the third to take a 7-0 lead.  The Brewers finally came back in the 4th to score four runs, to bring some life to the crowd.

I took a walk around the park during the fifth when the Marlins score two more and led by a comfortable 9-4.  I looked outside and it was pouring.  Sure glad we had the roof, but if it didn't stop before we left, it was going to be a mighty wet ride home as the bus was parked at a distance.

Looked at the souvenir stores, but everything was overpriced.  I had been thinking about one of the 1980s Brewers hats with what appeared to be a fielder's mitt, but was actually the letters "M" and "B", but didn't want to pay $25 for one.   

I also had a yearning for a brat.  Miller field is known for their brats.  It cost $5.25, but you could top it with mustard along with all the onions and sauerkraut you wanted.  You couldn't see the brat.  It was good, but nowhere near as good as a Johnsonville brat.  They use Klement's brats at the ball park.

It was getting to be 9 p.m. and we still weren't in the 7th so it was decided that we'd leave after the sausage race and the singing of "Take me Out to the Ballgame."  That was alright with me.

It was nice that the rain had turned into a slight drizzle so we reached the bus fairly dry.

It seemed that the ride back took forever and we had tornado warnings along the way.

We heard that the Brewers scored two runs in the 9th and lost 9-6.  Marlin right fielder Ichirio Suzuki had four hits.  I had 1 brat.

A Long Day.  --RoadDog
