Brewers 5, Reds 2
Matt Belisle was not real happy with Matt Belisle after Sunday's game. He could not believe that he gave up five runs with the stuff he had.
"It makes me want to puke," he said.
Belisle struck out nine and gave up six hits in six ininngs. Still he gave up five runs because he let things get away from him in a couple of two-out situations.
“I was filling up the strike zone with all my pitches," he said. "There were a lot of positives that came out of this game today. But, again, I gave up five runs. That’s not cutting it. That's not acceptable.”
Belisle can be an effective member of the 2008 rotation -- if he can avoid games like Sunday's. He knows that. That's why Sunday's outing had him feeling sick.
