Milwaukee Brewers Inside Pitch 2009-04-21

Milwaukee Brewers Inside Pitch 2009-04-21
The Brewers have played only 12 games, but manager Ken Macha already is at a loss for words to describe the work of reliever Todd Coffey.

"There's not a whole lot more I can say about Todd Coffey for what he has done this year," Macha said. "He has been tremendous."

Coffey put his Houdini-like qualities on display once again Sunday, tossing 2 2/3 scoreless innings to record the save in the Brewers' tense 4-2 triumph at Citi Field, averting a three-game sweep by the Mets.

In 16 appearances since being claimed off waivers from Cincinnati last September, Coffey has allowed no runs in 17 innings. He has entered games with the bases loaded three times, once with two outs and twice with one down, and stranded all nine runners.

"That's my job," said the modest right-hander. "This was a huge game for us. We've been in some tough games."

And why has Coffey succeeded with the Brewers after being dumped by the Reds?

"I can't explain it," he said. "For one, the guys are great. You've got everybody here behind you.

"I had the guys behind me in Cincinnati, too, but it's just different here. A change of scenery, I guess."
