Brewers 7, A's 1

What a great way to begin this storied season.

Braun mashed a two-run tater off Blanton in the first inning and added another RBI later on, Prince notched two ribbies of his own. Kendall also registered his first (unofficial) hit as a Brewer and fellow newcomer Mike Cameron made his presence known going 2 of 3 with a RBI and a stolen base.

On the defensive side of things, Vargas was the game winner as he held the A's to a mere three hits in his scoreless two inning stint. Also, both assumed starters and reserves connected for two double plays... one of which involved third base (re)transplant Bill Hall.

I've heard no immediate word on how Braun performed defensively in his first game in left, but maybe in cases like these no news is good news.

Tomorrow: The Brewers and A's face off again. According to the team's site Dave Bush and Manny Parra are each scheduled to toss two innings and Eric Gagne is tentatively slated to take the mound at some point too.
