Brewers having worst May in their history
MILWAUKEE - The Brewers need a boost in the worst way. They've reached a grim milestone, with the worst May record in franchise history.
We're told the billboard on North Avenue doesn't reflect the Brewers sad season but Brewers fan Craig Planton thinks it does.
"I hope they turn it around," said Planton.
Before Thursday night's game the Brewers were just one loss away from a franchise record for most losses in a month.
That record isn't lost on the parents watching their little leaguers play right across from Miller Park. Are fans giving up?
"Oh never. I'm a season ticket holder," said Lance Johnson. But he admits they are tough to watch
"I want to ride out but I can't say I m as excited as I usually am to watch them play."
So what's wrong with the struggling Brewers this season. Fans point to three issues, starting with the starting pitching.
"The pitching staff. I don't know one through five seems a little under achieving," said Johnson.
Ryan Braun is having an OK year but some think the hitting is hurting.
"Ricky weeks is in a slump, again it's only May - there's still five months to go," said Marty Hersh.
Hersh calls out the names on his son's team - but he's not ready to call the season over for the Brewers.
He hopes when Corey Hart returns things will turn around for the team
"Hopefully that will be the spark."
