Milwaukee Brewers Notes, Quotes 2009-05-08
--RHP Braden Looper was 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA in his first four starts, allowing six earned runs in 22 innings. In his last two starts, he is 0-2 with a 7.84 ERA, allowing nine earned runs in 10 1/3 innings. Unlike earlier in the season, he has been having trouble getting his pitches down in the strike zone.

--INF Craig Counsell collected four hits Wednesday night in Cincinnati while filling in for 3B Bill Hall (hamstring strain). Hall was healthy enough to play Thursday, however, so Counsell resumed his regular role on the bench. "You feel bad," manager Ken Macha said. "You get four hits and you're back on the bench the next day."

--C Carlos Corporan made his big-league debut Wednesday in relief of C Jason Kendall in a 15-3 romp in Cincinnati. Corporan had been up from the minors for a week, but Kendall had caught every inning of every game over that period. Corporan collected his first hit, a single.

BY THE NUMBERS: 1 -- Previous starts in the No. 3 spot in the batting order for 2B Rickie Weeks, who assumed the role May 3 vs. Arizona. Weeks had not batted third since the 2005 season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I'm going to have OSHA investigate it." -- Brewers manager Ken Macha, referring to the volume on the entrance song of closer Trevor Hoffman, AC/DC's "Hells Bells."
