Milwaukee Brewers Inside Pitch 2009-04-20

Milwaukee Brewers Inside Pitch 2009-04-20
Shortstop J.J. Hardy and right fielder Corey Hart tried something different to change their luck as well as the team's after the Brewers lost 1-0 Saturday to the Mets, dropping the team's record to 3-8.

Hardy and Hart went out and had their hair dyed black. Hart, a natural blonde, went all the way by having his beard dyed, too.

"You look like Abraham Lincoln," teammate Prince Fielder told Hart. "That's hilarious."

Said Hardy, who batted .125 in 11 games: "Just trying to change things up."

Hair stylists seldom turn down work, but Hart said he and Hardy were given a chance to back out.

"They said, 'Are you sure?'" Hart said. "They were trying to talk us out of it."

The dye jobs worked much better for one player than the other in the Brewers' 4-2 victory Sunday over the Mets. Hart went 2-for-3 with a walk and sacrifice fly, stole a base and scored a run. Hardy went 0-for-4 to fall to .114 (5-for-44).

BREWERS 4, METS 2: The Brewers avoided a three-game sweep by hanging on against the Mets. RHP Jeff Suppan, who entered the game with an 0-2 record and 12.91 ERA in his first two starts, bounced back with six strong innings (eight hits, two runs). RHP Todd Coffey did yeoman duty on the other end, pitching 2 2/3 scoreless innings to pick up his first save with the Brewers. The turning point came in the seventh inning when Coffey entered with the bases loaded and one out and the Brewers clinging to a 3-2 lead. Coffey induced cleanup hitter Carlos Delgado to bounce into a 1-2-3 double play.
