Brewers nip Pirates 3-2

Freddy Peralta dominates Bucs WP: Freddy Peralta (2-0); LP: Jameson Taillon (4-6); Save: Corey Knebel (7); Homeruns: Mil - Jesus Aguilar (14); Pit - Starling Marte (9) Box Score - it’s just good enough The Milwaukee Brewers (43-30) almost wasted a great start by rookie Freddy Peralta tonight...but not quite. The Pittsburgh Pirates (36-37) pared a 3-0 Brewer lead into the bottom of the seventh down to 3-2 against the Crew’s bullpen but Corey Knebel put down the Bucs in the bottom of the ninth to nail down Peralta’s second win of the season. Last night Pittsburgh’s Trevor Williams...

Milwaukee Brewers: Could Eric Thames be on the trading block?

Very rarely do you see a team in contention trade from their major league roster in July. However, the Milwaukee Brewers may do just that this year with Eric Thames. After Eric Thames went on the DL towards the end of May, Jesus Aguilar took over the starting first base job. He’s done an incredible […] Milwaukee Brewers: Could Eric Thames be on the trading block? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brewer rally falls short, Phils top Crew 10-9

Crew knocks out Aaron Nola but can’t hold Phillie bats WP: Tommy Hunter (2-0); LP: Chase Anderson (5-6); Save: Jake Thompson (2); Home runs: Phil - Rhys Hoskins (10), Mikail Franco (9), Odubel Herrera (9); Mil - Eric Thames 2 (8.9), Jesus Aguilar (13) This looks like a slow pitch softball box score This version of the Milwaukee Brewers (42-29) is never out of a game, and another holiday miracle came up just short when the Philadelphia Phillies’ Obdubel Herrera made a leaping catch of Christian Yelich’s two out drive to the warning track in center to cement the Phils’ 10-9 win.

Milwaukee Brewers: Eric Thames in the outfield?

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Eric Thames recently returned from a thumb injury. During his rehab assignment, he spent a little time in the outfield. With Jesus Aguilar swinging a hot bat, it makes no sense to pull him out of the lineup to make room for Eric Thames. The logical solution is to move Eric […] Milwaukee Brewers: Eric Thames in the outfield? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

All Star Voting: Brewers Ignored

All Star Voting: Brewers Ignored

I tell ya, we don’t get no respect! MLB has released it’s totals for the first round of fan voting on All Stars. I don’t know why it should bother me that the Milwaukee Brewers aren’t getting any votes, because: Their best hitter, Jesus Aguilar, isn’t on the ballot. The stats don’t jump out for anybody else. The Brewers’ fan base is smaller than most. Passionate, but small. We don’t get to vote for bullpen pitchers. Three @Braves, including NL leading vote-getter @FreddieFreeman5, are among the current NL leaders in the first @CampingWorld MLB All-Star Ballot update. ...

The key inning was the sixth. The Brewers had nine at bats against Phils’ starter Jake Arrieta without being able to get a hit, but a one-out catcher’s...

Brewers blast Phillies 12-4

No problems on offense tonight as the Brewers break out the bats. WP: Jhoulys Chacin (5-1)LP: Vince Velasquez (4-7) HR: Ryan Braun 2 (7,8), Christian Yelich (8), Carlos Santana (10) Box Score The Brewers offense wasn’t struggling tonight. It only took five batters to get on the board. After Jesus Aguilar and Travis Shaw drew two out walks, Ryan Braun hit a three-run home run out to left, giving the Brewers a 3-0 lead. They added on in the third, with a single from Manny Pina, single from Orlando Arcia, and double from Lorenzo Cain to up the lead to 5-0. It didn’t stop there, though. In...

Domingo Santana is having a weird season

Domingo Santana is having a weird season

Santana has us all frozen in “we’ll see” mode. Tweak the script and Domingo Santana might be in the doghouse. Imagine Josh Hader pitching more like a normal human. Jesus Aguilar stuck in a cold streak. Or a couple bad bounces in a few one run games. Milwaukee sports radio would be up in arms calling for heads to roll. Fortunately Josh Hader isn’t a normal human - and the Brewers have managed to get a bunch of wins without Domingo Santana’s normal self. Just a bit of bad luck, maybe? Ryan Braun has been the Brewers’ big victim of BABIP in 2018 so far and I figured something...

Home runs and pitching propel Brewers to 5-0 win over White Sox

Jhoulys Chacin with another good outing WP: Jhoulys Chacin (4-1); LP: James Shields (1-6); Save: none; Home runs: Mil - Erik Kratz (2), Jonathan Villar (3), Lorenzo Cain (8), Jesus Aguilar (10); CWS - none Box Score The Milwaukee Brewers (37-22) had another frustrating game with runners in scoring position, but four homers more than made up for it. Combine that with another very good start from Jhoulys Chacin and a back-to-form job by the bullpen and you have a 5-0 win over the Chicago White Sox (17-38). Erik Kratz led off the third against Chisox starter James Shields by golfing a low...

Brewers’ offense wins another one over Mets, 8-7

Crew waits a little longer, but seventh inning rally decides game WP: Boone Logan (1-0); LP: Jerry Blevins (1-1) Save: Corey Knebel (4); Homeruns: NYM - Asdrubal Cabrera (8), Devin Mesoraco (5); Mil - Jesus Aguilar (9) A very tight, but winning, Box Score The Milwaukee Brewers (34-20) rallied for an 8-7 win over the New York Mets (25-24) Sunday afternoon at Miller Park, with a four run seventh inning keying the victory. The Brewers used three consecutive two out hits, following a two out walk, to overcome a 6-4 deficit. The win gave the Crew a 3-1 series win against New York, and their...
