Aloha Folks, nice to see the production after yesterday’s low scoring game; Garza pitched one heck of a game for the Brewers. Anyhow, nice to see Fowler continue to not only get on base but offer another power “threat” at the plate before Schwarber. Lester must have felt he was on a different planet to get this kind of offensive backing behind him. This is a nice line-up. Do hope Montero gets a chance to rest the thump this weekend, so maybe Schwarber could get in one game at backstop against the WSox. Great game Cubs! Mahalo!

Aloha, meant to say rest the thumb, though Montero did get today off, it is good to give Schwarber some time behind the plate. Now it is time to tame a shark! Mahalo!
