Milwaukee Brewers Notes, Quotes 2009-05-09
--RHP Trevor Hoffman has made it worth the wait since coming off the disabled list and assuming the closer's role for the Brewers. Hoffman, who missed the first 18 games with an oblique strain, converted his fifth save in five opportunities Friday night in a 3-2 victory over the Cubs.

--The Brewers already have recorded 10 come-from-behind victories. By going 13-4 over their last 17 games, they have forged the best record in the majors since April 22.

--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."
