Drake playlists in Milwaukee (⬇ DOWN)
You won’t be hearing a lot of “God’s Plan,” “In My Feelings” and, nope, not even “Take Care” these next few days in Milwaukee. That’s because Bucks fans are all tired of seeing Drake’s antics on the floor seats during the Eastern Conference finals. A Toronto native and avid Raptors fan, the rapper has been filmed taunting superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and even rubbing the shoulders of Raptors coach Nick Nurse … during the game. What is happening? Anyway, Bucks fans hope to hear Drake sing “Hold On, We’re Going Home” to his beloved Raptors after two more Milwaukee victories.
Keston Hiura, Brewers infielder (⬆ UP)
The top prospect in Milwaukee’s minor-league system made his MLB debut May 14 and has already proved he can hit at this level. Hiura was hitting .286 coming into Wednesday’s game and had already collected four multi-hit games. He kept it rolling Wednesday, pounding a solo shot into the left-field seats for his first career home run at Miller Park. Get moving, Bernie Brewer!
Eric Bledsoe, Bucks guard (⬇ DOWN)
There hasn’t been much of a “Bledshow” in the Eastern Conference finals. Through four games against Toronto, Bledsoe is averaging a lowly 8.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists per contest. He’s also shooting 10.5% from 3-point range (2 of 19) and 24.4% from the field overall. A glimmer of hope through this rough stretch, however, was Bledsoe being named to his first career NBA All-Defensive first team Wednesday.
Adrian Houser, Brewers pitcher (⬆ UP)
Houser is having himself a nice week. The 26-year-old got out all six Philadelphia hitters he faced Thursday, then notched another two scoreless innings of relief against Cincinnati on Tuesday. Houser, who began the year at Triple-A San Antonio, was recalled to the Brewers for a spot start April 22 and gave up five runs and nine hits in four innings to St. Louis. The right-hander was optioned again, but ever since he was recalled again May 3, Houser has held opponents to two runs in 10 1/3 innings (six outings).
Zach Davies, Brewers pitcher (⬇ DOWN)
Davies entered Wednesday’s game with a squeaky clean 5-0 record and the second-best ERA in all of baseball at 1.54. That didn’t last long. Cincinnati attacked Davies from the start and piled on five runs in the second inning and another in the third to boot the right-hander from the game.
