4/12: Brewers 5, Mets 3

Your team is on the road playing one of the top rivals in the league. You've got a 3-game losing streak and haven't been hitting a lick. You desperately need a win but today are facing one of the top pitchers in the league. Who do you want on the mound? There is only one answer to that question.

If you define a "stop" as a starting pitcher getting a win in a game that ends a 3 or more game losing streak, Ben Sheets led the Brewers last year with 4 (the whole team had 9), and leads again this year with one.

Johan Santana gave up three home runs for only the sixth time in 177 career starts.

It's getting to be about time to start keeping track. Prince, J.J. Hardy, and Corey Hart are still on the home run schneid.

Bill Hall is on pace to break the all-time Major League records for both home runs and strikeouts in a season.
