Brewers put Eric Thames and Junior Guerra on disabled list ahead of doubleheader

With the All-Star break coming up and fresh bodies needed for Saturday’s twinbill in Pittsburgh, Nate Orf, Brent Suter and Aaron Wilkerson are added to the roster You need every fresh arm or set of legs you can get before playing a doubleheader, and with the All-Star Break coming up after the weekend, the Brewers aren’t waiting around for some of the latest injuries to start feeling better. Junior Guerra had his worst start of the season on Friday night, and now it looks like we know why — he was hurt. He lands on the DL, along with Eric Thames, who was getting checked out after last...

Brewers lose their second extra-inning contest to the Marlins, 5-4

Brewers lose their second extra-inning contest to the Marlins, 5-4

A painful loss that Jesús Aguilar tried to save It was a rough one tonight. Amidst the celebration of Jesús Aguilar making the All-Star Game, the Milwaukee Brewers suffered through their second extra-inning loss of the series with the Miami Marlins. The game started off fantastic. Freddy Peralta hadn’t allowed a hit in the first three innings. Meanwhile, Aguiler drove in Eric Thames in the first and Christain Yelich drove Thames in in the third. The Crew was up 2-0, then Freddy Peralta fell apart. The rookie pitcher couldn’t escape the fourth, allowing three hits and walking two...

Four homers key series deciding win WP: Junior Guerra (6-5); LP: Sean Newcomb (8-4); Save: none; Homeruns: Atl - none; Mil - Hernan Perez (6), Jesus Aguilar 2 (22), Eric Thames (14) A nice, juicy Box Score The Milwaukee Brewers (54-36) used the long ball to cap a 6-1 home stand with a decisive 10-3 win over the Atlanta Braves (50-39) this afternoon at Miller Park. Homeruns were the story of the day, as the Brewers hit four to account for eight of their runs. The Brewers took three of four from Atlanta, the top teams in the NL East.

Brewers pitching dominates, Eric Thames homer beats Twins 2-0

Brewers pitching dominates, Eric Thames homer beats Twins 2-0

Guerra, Hader, Knebel combine on two hit shutout WP: Junior Guerra (5-5); LP: Jake Odorizzi (3-6); Save: Corey Knebel (9); Homeruns: Min - none, Mil - Eric Thames (12) A minimalist Box Score Some 2-0 games are tense affairs, and some have such dominant pitching that they almost feel like a rout. Milwaukee Brewers (50-35) starter Junior Guerra had a tough first inning, allowing a one out double and two walks to load the bases, but he escaped the inning with a pop-out to short and a flyball into deep left-center that was run down by Keon Broxton. After that, Juni G was in control. The...

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 14 in Review

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 14 in Review

Three three and three weeks in a row... The Milwaukee Brewers said all along that having lots of good outfielders wasn’t a bad thing, and they didn’t flip any of the excess major league level outfielders for perceived needed pitching in the off season. Then this week happened...as the week wore on, Lorenzo Cain was on the disabled list, Christian Yelich left a game with lower back tightness, and Ryan Braun left a game with back tightness of his own, the Brewers were fielding an outfield of Keon Broxton, Hernan Perez, and Eric Thames. Domingo Santana is currently searching for his bat at...

Bullpen collapses as Reds demolish Brewers, 12-3

Bullpen collapses as Reds demolish Brewers, 12-3

Boy, the Reds had lots of base runners after the fourth inning WP: Dave Hernandez (3-0); LP: Mike Zagurski (0-1); Save: none; Home runs: Mil - Eric Thames (11); Cin - Michael Lorenzen, GS (3) A heavily Red Box Score For the second game in a row, the Brewers and Reds managed to turn a close game in the late innings into a rout, but this time the Reds used an eight run seventh inning to flip a 3-1 deficit into a 10-3 lead and ultimately won their first game of the series, 12-3. Milwaukee (48-34) scratched and clawed to build that two run lead and hoped that the ‘B’ bullpen could hold...

A great team win for Brewers over Reds, 6-4

A great team win for Brewers over Reds, 6-4

Brewers come back twice to win 1st game of 4 game set WP: Junior Guerra (4-5); LP: Amir Garrett (0-1); Save: Corey Knebel (8); Home runs: Mil - Jesus Aguilar (19), Eric Thames (10); Cin- Jose Peraza (4), Jesse Winkler (6) Box Score - yay! I don’t know that I’ve enjoyed a Brewer win this much all year, which is saying something. The Milwaukee Nine (47-33) topped the Cincinnati Reds (34-47) by coming back from two two-run deficits, surviving an injury to Christian Yelich, and making key plays offensively, defensively, and on the mound. The game was played in three distinct sections. The...
