MILWAUKEE — Those good times didn’t last long, that’s for sure. One night after an inspiring come-from-behind victory, the Crew stunk against the Jays, losing 8-1.
“We only had four hits, two were fairly soft and one didn’t get out of the infield,” Crew skipper Tom Trebelhorn told the Milwaukee Journal. “That was it. That’s a very effective ball game.”
If that wasn’t enough, in the seventh inning someone threw a cherry bomb onto the field. In the ninth, they announced that they had arrested the idiot.
“That was the loudest ovation of the night,” Trebelhorn said.
Too bad they didn’t arrest the Crew for the stinkbomb they laid against the Jays.
“The whole game belonged to Clancy,” Treb said.
As for the cherry bomb, Rob Deer was stunned.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Deer told the Journal. “That’s when you know things are going bad. It was loud. It felt like someone took both hands and slapped them on my ears.”
Instead, it was just the Blue Jays boxing the Crew about the ears.
“I don’t think they were throwing at us,” Treb said of the cherry bomber. “I think someone was bound and deteremined to have a little fun with pyrotechnics and chose that particular time.
“I didn’t take it personally.”
Let’s hope they took the loss that way.
