April 23, 1985 Game 159: Brewers (6-5) at White Sox (6-5)

This would be a game by two teams searching for an identity.  The Brewers seem to do just enough to win and no one has been overly impressive.  The White Sox look to be the team that will lose one than win one.  The offense is running on all cylinders while Tom Seaver is the only pitcher that has been consistent.

Today the White Sox send Floyd Bannister to the hill and the Brewers send Teddy Higuera out to make his first start of the season.

The Brewers take the lead in the 3rd as Yount jumps all over a Bannister curve-ball and hits it into the left-field seats for a 2 run homer and the Brewers are on top 2-0. Pitching would take over from there and Bannister and Higuera would match each other pitch for until the 7th when the White Sox finally get to Higuera.

They would scratch 2 runs across to tie this one up; Kittle draws a walk, Walker doubles and Kittle holds at 3rd.  Hullett singles and that scores both Kittle and Walker making the score 2-2. The Brewers would regain the lead in the 8th when Molitor singles and steals 2nd.  Brouhard then doubles him home to make it 3-2.

Fingers would work the 9th for his 4th save of the season.  This was a fun one to watch and once again the Brewers do just enough to pull out the win.

The Final Score 3-2 Brewers
