“It’s rare that he hits a cheap one.” - Mike on Mike appreciation from Blowers.
Thirty four minutes later, he did it again.
And then thirty two minutes after that he did it yet again.
In the top of the bottom of the eighth inning he took pity on Nick Ramirez, who’d just entered, the game, and only knocked a line drive single into center. Perhaps it was a moment of solidarity, one Good Dog Dad
Now, I’m certainly not a property law expert, but am fairly sure that all of this means that Mike Zunino is the new owner of the Milwaukee Brewers. Arizona’s a weird state, with weird rules, what can I say?
If his offensive displays weren’t enough, Zunino had a great throw to nab Hernan Perez at second, and Italian nanas all over the country shook their bony index fingers righteously at the statistics that say his defense is in decline.
Beyond Zunino, Mike Leake had an overwhelmingly Mike Leake outing, going six innings, walking just one, and allowing ten hits that inexplicably only produced four runs. Meanwhile, James Pazos, Ryan Cook, and Nick Vincent all seemed to have made a pact before the game to serve as a mild sedative for the fanbase after the news about David Phelps’ UCL, and collectively allowed two runners on base following Leake’s exit from the game.
Most important takeaways from this game:
- Mike Zunino hit three home runs, and is now the proud owner of the Brewers.
- We’re one day closer to Opening Day.
Go M(ike Accor)s(i Zunino)!
