McGehee’s three home runs power Brewers over Cards

Three Long Retaliaters!

This is how you respond to a challenge from a fierce divisional rival that wants to see if you’re up to it.

You don’t intentionally throw at the opposing hitters. You don’t woof about their fans or insist your particular brand of justice is the gospel according to baseball. You don’t accuse them of cheating.

You go out and beat that team, soundly if you can.

“We don’t have time for fighting and talking,” said Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Casey McGehee. “We’ve got more important things to do here. We’re going to go out and play baseball.”

That’s what the Brewers did Wednesday afternoon at Miller Park, riding three home runs and five runs batted in by McGehee to a 10-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.

...To attempt to end the hostilities, umpire crew chief Gary Darling summoned La Russa and Brewers manager Ron Roenicke to home plate for the pregame lineup exchange, a formality usually handled by coaches.

“He just basically told us, ‘Let’s just play baseball,’?” said Roenicke, who was confident his team would do exactly that.

I only "watched" it via Gameday, so I don't know how he looked, but what a bizarre pitching line for Edwin Jackson. The 7 innings, 1 walk, and 6 Ks make it look like a pretty good outing. If it weren't for the 14 hits and 10 runs.
