Milwaukee Brewers Notes, Quotes 2008-05-30
--RHP Jeff Suppan has been involved in both sides of the last two 1-0 victories by the Brewers. On Wednesday night, he went eight innings in a 1-0 triumph over Atlanta. It was the first 1-0 victory for the Brewers since Sept. 20, 2006, over St. Louis. Suppan was the starting pitcher for the Cardinals in that game.

--RHP Tim Dillard has not been charged with a run in four outings out of the bullpen since being summoned from Class AAA Nashville. In 4 2/3 innings, he has allowed one hit and one walk with two strikeouts. Dillard also singled in his first career big-league at-bat Thursday.

--CF Mike Cameron has been known as a high-strikeout player over his career, and that hasn't changed this season. After striking out three times Thursday against Atlanta, Cameron has accumulated 35 K's in 113 at-bats. Cameron went 1-for-12 in the three-game series against Atlanta.

--1B Prince Fielder, who socked 19 home runs in the first two months of last season, has six home runs this season and none since May 18 in Boston. However, he has hit safely in 14 of his last 16 games, batting .344 in that stretch (21-for-61).

--C Jason Kendall went 0-for-10 in the three-game series against Atlanta to drop his batting average to a season-low .259.

BY THE NUMBERS: 30 -- Road games played by the Brewers, most in the major leagues through May 25.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We just need to win games. That's the main thing. We've had a tough month. You can do one of two things when you're in a rut -- sink or swim. We have too much talent to sink." -- Catcher Jason Kendall.
