Milwaukee Downslide

April 7 the Milwaukee Brewers faced off against the Colorado Rockies in the second game of their 3-game series trying to redeem themselves after a 10-0 loss the day before. With Ryan Braun out with a ribcage injury it would be even tougher for them to come out with a win. As the game started it was looking ok for the Brewers but then inning by inning they started to fall further behind. In the 6th inning the Brewers were losing by 3 in a score of 5-2. With what seemed like no hope remaining the Brewers attempted a comeback but failed with a final score of 5-2. The Brewers will be playing the last game in the series April 8 in hope to win their first game.

Milwaukee Bucks and their struggles against Rose

Saturday April 18 the Milwaukee Bucks played the Chicago Bulls in

Game 1 of the first round play offs. The Bulls pulled off an early lead and kept it like that through-out the whole game to a final score of 103-91.

Derrick Rose, of the Bulls shined brightly and got 23 points throughout

the whole game. Bucks center, Zaza Pachulia, said "You're surprised because of all the injuries and because he really just came back. But you're not surprised because he's very capable of playing like that. He's one of the best players in the league." He said this to the press April 19 referring to Derrick and his huge comeback after last years torn ACL taking him out of the playoffs in the first round against the Wizards.

The Bucks head coach Jason Kidd, a former NBA player himself, said "He came out very aggressive, getting the ball in the paint and finishing. Then in the second half, he knocked down some jump shots. He had a heck of a game." And truthfully enough he did. If this continues for the rest of round one the Bulls should be advancing

to round two, but the Bucks are very capable of coming back if they can defend against Derrick behind the arch and in the paint.

Recess Fun

April 14 outside at recess the 8th grade boys from Aquarius and Apollo house had the time of their lives. After lunch the went outside to play football like they always do. Football was very intense also enjoyable for most of them. The best player out there, Jonah Oettinger, got a clutch interception. His team didn't end up winning but he said it was still fun to play. "I enjoy coming out and just having fun. It's a great break from learning." said Jonah. Most of them are looking forward to tomorrow to play again.
