Call it butterflies, call it being overheated, but whatever is was, Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Adrian Houser was a little sick on the mound.
The young Brewers pitcher, who has been filling in admirably in the starting rotation, was set to take the mound against the Rangers. He was through two outs in the top of the first inning when suddenly, he started to spew.
Training staff came out to check on the righty, and after a few more warm-up pitches, he was good to go. Houser had a great start last night, throwing 96 pitches through 6 innings and striking out a career-best 10 batters.

This isn’t Houser’s first rodeo. The first time that he got sick on the mound at Miller Park, he had just been called up at the time from their AAA ball club, which was out in Colorado Springs, with the stress of flying and the demand to get an arm to the bullpen to help out the Brewers late inning guys.
A true “puke-and-rally” by Houser here. The win was the fifth in a row for the Milwaukee Brewers, as they have swept the Pittsburgh Pirates and are a game from sweeping Texas today. The Brewers trail the Chicago Cubs by a game and a half in the NL Central with the St. Louis Cardinals nipping at their heels – either way, it’s going to be a fun month of baseball in the NL Central.
