As expected, righthander Dave Bush was named to start for the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 3 against the Phillies tomorrow at Miller Park. The former Conestoga High star was 9-10 with a 4.18 ERA this season. Dale Sveum, the Brewers' interim manager, said that since the all-star break, Bush had been Milwaukee's second-best pitcher, behind last night's starter, CC Sabathia. "He has been one of the top pitchers numbers-wise in the game over the last two months," Sveum said of Bush.

Milwaukee Brewers righthander Dave Bush got a good workout in at Citizens Bank Park and then went home. Literally. After preparing yesterday for today's start of the National League Division Series against the Phillies, Bush said he was leaving for Devon, where his parents, Tom and Rita, reside. A star catcher at Conestoga High, Bush attended Wake Forest, where he saw limited time behind the plate and was converted into one of the most successful closers in college baseball.

Rickie Weeks started the go-ahead rally in the opener, then provided most of the offense in the second game. Weeks scored on Prince Fielder's 13th-inning single as Milwaukee beat host Florida, 3-2, in the completion of a suspended game. He then homered, tripled and scored three runs in a 5-2 victory in last night's scheduled game. Milwaukee had lost nine in a row to the Marlins before winning two straight. Tuesday's game was suspended with the score 2-2 after 10 innings and three rain delays that totaled 1 hour, 42 minutes.

Dave Bush was under a bit of stress when he and his teammates on the Milwaukee Brewers arrived in Philadelphia early this week for a three-game series against the Phillies. It can be a little maddening for a professional athlete when he returns to his hometown. You try to see as many friends and family members as possible in a limited period of time. There are ticket requests. "It can be stressful," Bush said. "It's a little hectic sometimes. " Bush managed. On Monday, he went back to where he grew up in Devon and visited with his parents, Tom and Rita.

In his last 18 appearances, Bush was 7-3 with a 3.23 ERA. Bush did not find it ironic that his first career postseason start would be against a team he followed as a youngster.

Minimal offense, two errors that led to three unearned runs, a costly pickoff in the eighth inning with the potential tying run at the plate: The dawn of the Jim Riggleman era looked suspiciously like the kind of spotty play that got Manny Acta fired as manager of the Washington Nationals. Rich Harden allowed three hits over six innings, Derrek Lee homered and the visiting Chicago Cubs beat Washington, 6-2, last night, spoiling Riggleman's debut as the Nationals' interim manager.

Mike Maddux has been in professional baseball for 26 years, but a draft-day rookie could have anticipated the question the Brewers pitching coach got in Sunday's eighth inning. It was the the regular season's final day and, in a game Milwaukee needed as badly as Miller needs hops, the Brewers were tied with the Cubs, 1-1. Pitcher CC Sabathia, who had thrown 106 pitches four days after he had thrown 108, eight days after he had thrown 105, 12 days after he had thrown 99, was due to bat. Interim manager Dale Sveum, who got the job in large part because predecessor Ned Yost wouldn't agree to work Sabathia at this relentless pace, turned to Maddux.
