Brewers beat Braves in extra innings, 3-2

Brandon Woodruff and three home runs were the difference After two demoralizing losses to the Atlanta Braves in the first two games of their three game series in Atlanta, the Milwaukee Brewers were looking to salvage at least one win. And the Brewers were able to do just that behind the arms of Brandon Woodruff and Josh Hader as well as the home run ball. To get things started, Christian Yelich got the Brewers on the board early as he hit his nineteenth home run in the season in the top of the first. The homer was a solo shot to dead away centerfield that just got over the wall. Ronald...

Milwaukee Brewers: How is Mike Moustakas’ start to the season?

Christian Yelich these past two seasons has–undoubtedly–been the face of the franchise but another player in his second year for the Milwaukee Brewers is having a great year so far in 2019. Mike Moustakas is in his second year for the Milwaukee Brewers and he is making sure that he becomes a household name.

Brewers pummel Phillies 11-3, take 3 of 4 in series

Christian Yelich hits two home runs in the win. WP: Zach Davies (5-0)LP: Zach Elfin (5-4) HR: Mike Moustakas (11), Yasmani Grandal (8), Christian Yelich 2 (17, 18), Jean Segura (4) Box Score In the battle of the Zachs, it was Zach Davies who came out on top, thanks to a big day from the offense, led by Christian Yelich. Zach Davies was on his game today, pitching six innings in his start. He allowed three runs, but only one of those was charged as earned (the home run he allowed to Jean Segura in the the first inning). The other two were unearned because of three errors by the Brewers, all...

Brewers down Phillies, 5-2

Another effective outing from the “Stabilizer,” Gio Gonzalez Keston Hiura played so well in his debut last night that he moved up one spot in the batting order. He and the rest of the Brewers’ lineup would have to face Jake Arrieta, and the NL East leading Philadelphia Phillies. Gio Gonzalez got the start for the Brew Crew, and he was effective once again. More on that later. The scoring started early in this one. In the top of the first, Lorenzo Cain singled to left. Jake Arrieta followed the hit by hitting Christian Yelich. With the crowd screaming expletives at him, Ryan Braun...

Missed Opportunities Lead to a 7-4 Brewers Loss to the Phillies

Missed Opportunities Lead to a 7-4 Brewers Loss to the Phillies

Milwaukee now on a three-game losing streak Box ScoreWP: Adam Morgan (2-1)LP: Matt Albers (2-2)HR: Mike Moustakas (10), Ceasar Hernandez (4) It was anything but a pretty night in Philadelphia for the Milwaukee Brewers. The Crew stranded 14 base runners and failed to capitalize early. That and a couple of late-game miscues led to a Phillies comeback and victory. What’s easiest to look back on in this game is the early miscues. Milwaukee had a strong offensive first inning, when Christian Yelich drove in Lorenzo Cain to take a 1-0 lead and Yelich came in to score on a Yasmani Grandal...

Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers preview, Sunday 5/12, 6:05 CT

The Cubs go for the series win. The weather forecast for tonight is again pretty nasty, even if the rain holds off it'll be cold and raw. As they did on Saturday, though, they will probably play through it unless there’s a torrential downpour or lightning, neither of which seems likely. As such, you should keep this handy this evening. Notes for tonight: The Cubs have managed to (for the most part) stop Christian Yelich so far this year. He’s 5-for-20 against the Cubs with one home run and five walks. Against Jon Lester in his career, he’s 3-for-9 with no homers and four...

Brewers fall 2-1 to Cubs in 15 inning marathon

A frustrating game. Box Score It was a cold, windy day at the friendly confines today, one with all the makings for a pitching duel between the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs. Cole Hamels was sharp from the get-go for the North Side Nine, striking out the first three batters in Lorenzo Cain, Christian Yelich, and Jesus Aguilar. Zach Davies toed the slab opposite Hamels, and danced around a leadoff triple by Jason Heyward to post a scoreless first when Orlando Arcia cut Heyward down at the plate trying to score on a ground ball. The Cubs and Brewers traded zeroes — and double plays —...

Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers preview, Friday 5/10, 1:20 CT

It’s the first visit of the Brew Crew to Wrigley Field in 2019. Notes for the first Brewers trip to Wrigley Field this year: Christian Yelich, the reigning N.L. MVP, did not do well at all against Cubs pitching last year. In 2018, Yelich hit just .213/.279/.246 (13-for-61) with no home runs. He hit at least five home runs against all the other N.L. Central teams. And at Wrigley, he was even worse: .205/.273/.205 (8-for-39). In the series at Miller Park earlier this year, though, he was 4-for-12 (.333) with a home run. The Cubs have hit at least one home run in in 15 consecutive games....

Washington’s Nationals got swept by the Milwaukee Brewers for the first time since 2011... This one was over before it started... or actually, about eleven batters into the series finale with the Milwaukee Brewers in Miller Park, after Christian Yelich hit a solo home run in the bottom of the first, 1-0, and the Washington Nationals, who have been plagued by errors throughout the series, misplayed two more, and fell behind, 2-0, before Orlando Arcia added a bases-loaded, two-run single, making it 4-0 after one, in what ended up a 7-3 loss for the Nationals, who got swept in the three-game...

Davies and Yelich carry the Brewers to a 3-2 victory and sweep against the Mets

The Crew sweeps the Mets out of Milwaukee Box Score WP: Zach Davies (4-0, 1.56)LP: Jason Vargas (1-2, 5.92 ERA) HR: Christian Yelich (15), Juan Lagares (2) The Milwaukee Brewers came into today’s game needing a special performance from their starting pitcher after the bullpen covered more than 13 innings in yesterday’s extra inning game. Zach Davies answered that call and then some, carrying the team to a 3-2 victory. Davies pitched a spectacular game, going 7.2 innings and only giving up two runs. It took 118 pitches to get through it, but thanks to Davies, Milwaukee only had to use...
