After throwing at Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff, Cubs pitcher Ryan Tepera suspended three games

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Manager David Ross and associate coach Mike Borzello also were suspended a game each In the six games between the Brewers and Cubs this season, things have been tense. The Brewers have hit six Cubs batters with pitches in the six games they’ve played so far this season. Three of those have hit Cubs catcher Willson Contreras, who has been upset about being hit so much. One of those hit him in the head. This has led to a benches-clearing incident, which Contreras was fined $7,500 for inciting. On Tuesday, it ramped up more as Cubs...

Ryan Tepera gets three-game suspension for throwing at Brandon Woodruff

Photo by Stacy Revere/ There’s also been a fine, but Tepera has appealed. The Cubs and Brewers went through a bit of a hit-by-pitch kerfuffle during their two recent series, one at Wrigley Field, the other in Milwaukee. In the fifth inning of Tuesday’s 3-2 Cubs win, after Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff had hit Willson Contreras, Ryan Tepera threw this pitch behind Woodruff [VIDEO].

Brewers: Showing Emerging Ace Freddy Peralta Some Love

Brandon Woodruff and Corbin Burnes are elite pitchers. But behind the Brewers fierce two-headed monster, there is another emerging ace in Milwaukee: Freddy Peralta. Freddy Peralta is amidst a hot start to the 2021 season. He is continuing to develop into a legitimate top-of-the-rotation stud for the Brewers. It’s time to recognize that.

Bullpen falters late, Brewers lose to Cubs 3-2

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Brandon Woodruff pitched well, and Luis Urias reached base four times. Box Score After three straight days with some high-powered offense, the offense was due to come down a bit. Unfortunately, it came down a bit too far today. The game didn’t start out well for the Brewers. In the bottom of the first, Lorenzo Cain grounded out but hit first awkward, and was seen limping afterwards. He did stay out in the field for the second inning, but was pulled at the start of the third and replaced with Billy MicKinney. Later on, it was announced that Cain...

Brewers: Willson Contreras Crossed A Line In Comments On Brandon Woodruff

The rivalry between the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs is alive and well. If you thought things have been getting chippy between the Brewers and Cubs, you’d be right. Things have been escalating early this season, and the player at the heart of it all is Cubs catcher Willson Contreras.

Brewers: Pulling Brandon Woodruff vs. the Cubs Was the Right Move

Well that’s more like it. Just like Opening Day, it took some extra work to get it done, but the Brewers got their first series win of the 2021 season when they took out the rival Cubs 4-2 in 10 innings, winning the rubber match of the three-game series.

Game Thread #6: Milwaukee Brewers (2-3) @ Chicago Cubs (3-2)

Photo by Abbie Parr/ Brandon Woodruff vs. Kyle Hendricks We’ve made it one turn through the rotation, and if the early results are any indication, it could be a major strength for the Brewers going forward. The offense, of course, is a bit of a mixed bag, but the Brewers will hope to build on some of the good things they did last night. It’ll be a tough task, though, against someone who has historically had their number, even when things are going well — Kyle Hendricks. The Brewers will counter with Brandon Woodruff for today’s matinee at Wrigley. Lorenzo Cain...

Brewers: Don’t Worry There’s A Lot of Games Left This Season

3 games into the season is not enough to throw in the towel. What can we conclude from the Brewers first series? Not much. The starting rotation looks good. It wasn’t only Corbin Burnes who looked sharp this weekend. Brandon Woodruff had a solid, albeit short, start on Thursday, while Adrian Houser looked good on […] Brewers: Don’t Worry There’s A Lot of Games Left This Season - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Box Score Spring Training is winding down, and today Brandon Woodruff took the mound for his final tune-up before he toes the slab on Opening Day for the Milwaukee Brewers next week. Woody faced off against the Kansas City Royals this afternoon and worked into the fifth inning on 78 pitches, yielding a pair of runs on four hits and two walks. He did strike out seven and induced a double play, and looks to be ready to roll for the regular season. Two players who face some uncertainty regarding their...

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Taylor, Vogelbach, and Garcia go deep in support of Woodruff. Box Score Opening Day starter Brandon Woodruff toed the slab for the Milwaukee Brewers today as they hit the road in Cactus League play to take on Cleveland at Goodyear Ballpark. The ace of the Menomonee Valley Nine looked every bit of that title today as he held Cleveland in check, working so efficiently that he even tossed an extra inning in addition to the five that were originally planned. Woody allowed a solo home run to Franmil Reyes to lead off the second inning, and...
