Brewers' Thames Could Make History This Weekend

(Milwaukee, WI) ¬†— ¬†Milwaukee Brewers’ first baseman Eric Thames could make history this weekend, when the Crew hosts Atlanta for a three game series to close out April. Thames expects to play after tweaking his left hamstring in Wednesday’s Milwaukee home victory against Cincinnati. Thames only needs three homers to tie the Major League April record of 14 set by Albert Pujols in 2006 and Alex Rodriguez in ’07 and Thames needs to score twice to tie the big leagues’ scoring mark of 29 runs for April, set by Larry Walker in 1997. Tonight’s starter for Atlanta is 43-year-old Bartolo Colon, who has given up just three homers in four starts this year. Milwaukee’s Chase Anderson is the National League E-R-A leader at one-point-one-three, and he’ll try to go 3-0 this evening.
