Dave Bush pitched magnificently for the Milwaukee Brewers today, getting through 7 2/3 innings before surrendering his first hit. Phillies slugger Matt Stairs ended Bush’s dreams of a no hitter with a shot that banked of the foul pole, resulting in a solo home run. Jimmy Rollins recorded a single before Bush was taken out, all in all letting up just one run off two hits and three walks. This is the second time Bush has flirted with history, as he went to the eighth inning with out allowing a hit in a start last season.
The Brewers offense broke out in the 4th inning when Ryan Braun nailed a two-run homer. After the Brew crew never looked back, tallying a total of 6 runs for the game. Look for the Brewers Friday against the Astros at 7:10 pm in Houston. Philadelphia Phillies tickets can be found right here at Aceticket.com!
Portland “rookie” Greg Oden is finally starting to have the kind of games the Trailblazers drafted him for. Oden’s 24 point, 15 rebound, 2 steal, and 2 block outing helped the Blazers shred the Milwaukee Bucks. It was Oden’s 12th double-double on the season, team best for the season. Portland’s 102-85 win puts them at 25-16 on the season, putting them just 1.5 games behind Denver in the Northwest division. Despite the Darius Miles salary cap drama, the Trail Blazers have been playing solid .500 ball since the holiday break, and will face off against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

A tired Boston Celtics team was able to fight off a late Bucks rally to finish with the win in overtime last night in Milwaukee. The win put the Celtics at 9-2 on the year while the Bucks dropped to 5-6. The Celtics were playing their 8th game in 12 days and at times looked like they could use a rest. Boston will get two days to rest before facing the Knicks on Tuesday 11/18 at the TD Banknorth Garden.
The Celtics held a strong 50-38 lead going into the third period and looked poised to cruise to the win. The Bucks however would erase Boston’s 12 point lead in the 4th quarter to force OT. The Celtics had the edge in the end, winning 102-97 thanks in large part to Paul Pierce’s 28 points.
Celtics tickets are available for all games including Tuesday night’s matchup with the New York Knicks.

To land C.C. the Brewers gave up left fielder Matt LaPorta, pitchers Rob Bryson and Zach Jackson and a player to be named later.
For the Brewers the move signals their intent to make a push for the playoffs this season. The Brewers haven’t been to the playoffs since 1982. Milwaukee is currently in a tight race with the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals in the strong NL Central Division. The Brewers and Cardinals both trail the Cubs by 3.5 games.
