Brewers vs. Nationals: Sunday game report

The Brewers missed out on their first sweep of the Nationals since beating them three straight from May 23-25, 2011 at Miller Park. Only two players — Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy — remain from that team.

Counsell giving Jonathan Lucroy's legs a rest

Oakland, Calif. - The multiple off days this week has allowed Brewers manager Craig Counsell to give catcher Jonathan Lucroy some rest this week. He was used only as a pinch-hitter Sunday in Los Angeles, was off with the entire team Monday, then served as DH against Oakland on Tuesday evening.

Johnny Cueto is outstanding, Giants finish sweep of Brewers

The Giants took advantage of sloppy Brewers mistakes, winning their fifth straight game. The first thing to remember is that the Brewers aren’t really that bad. They were over .500 in May, and they were riding a mini-winning streak when they came into AT&T Park. Jonathan Villar, Ryan Braun, and Jonathan Lucroy are all hitting better than any non-Belt on the Giants. They’ve been enjoying some calm, steady seasons from a couple starters, including Jimmy Nelson before Wednesday. If you were expecting the Braves with vertigo, you were expecting the wrong team. The second thing to remember...

Bumgarner, Giants beat Brewers 3-2

In a game in which Bumgarner’s ERA soared from 1.88 all the way to 1.91, the ace helped beat the Brewers 3-2 with his mere presence Tuesday night. Judging by Bumgarner’s seventh-inning plate appearance, perhaps the Brewers told their pitchers before the game, “Don’t let that Bumgarner guy beat you.” With Bumgarner — the best power-hitting pitcher in the majors — at the plate, left-hander Will Smith seemed so intimidated by the big fella that he threw consecutive breaking balls in the dirt that skipped past catcher Jonathan Lucroy. Santiago Casilla pitched a perfect ninth...

If Alex Avila keeps doing what he’s doing, you can probably cross Jonathan Lucroy off the list. Of course, doing that presumes that you could put Lucroy on the list in the first place. MLB Trade Rumors went through the list of teams that could feasibly have the need and assets to acquire the Milwaukee catcher, and it’s looking like a field of 10 teams or more. MLBTR...

The 2 factors keeping Mets from pulling off Jonathan Lucroy trade

MILWAUKEE — Let’s use the term “mildly aware” to describe Jonathan Lucroy and Mets fans’ interest in bringing him aboard the defending National League champions. “Little bit,” the Brewers catcher, whose Twitter account gives him a direct pipeline to the public, said Saturday, before Milwaukee pounded the Mets, 7-4, at Miller Park. “Not really. It’s...

Injured Neil Walker adds to Mets’ angst in thorough pummeling

MILWAUKEE — The ball was jumping Saturday at Miller Park, leaving manager Terry Collins’ spot starter and gassed bullpen to absorb a beatdown, the likes of which the Mets largely had avoided this season.

Why pitching backwards may be Harvey’s strikeout breakthrough

MILWAUKEE — Matt Harvey can’t catch a break. Compared to where the right-hander was 2 ½ weeks ago, the Mets gladly will accept the fact Harvey doesn’t have the wins to show for his recent body of work. There only is so much Harvey can control. On Friday, he took his first no-decision of the...
