A passive approach at the plate is a major problem for the Milwaukee Brewers

Daniel Vogelbach swings at fewer pitches in the strike zone than any Brewers hitter. | Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Swinging more often at strikes could be the key to an offensive turnaround It’s no secret that the offense for the Milwaukee Brewers has been painful to watch most nights, struggling to the tune of 3.75 runs per game (5th-worst in MLB). Yes, Christian Yelich has missed most of the season and others like Kolten Wong, Lorenzo Cain, and Omar Narvaez have been out with injuries, too; however, there seems to be an “approach” issue with the...

Brewers fall to Phillies, 6-5, after getting bad news on Christian Yelich’s back

Kam Nedd-USA TODAY Sports A tough night for Eric Lauer and the defense behind him. Box Score Shortly after learning that they would be without their franchise player — again — for the foreseeable future, the Milwaukee Brewers were forced to play a baseball game on Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Phillies. Milwaukee’s offense put pressure on opposing starter Aaron Nola right away, with Kolten Wong hitting a leadoff double then scoring on a one-out single by Daniel Vogelbach to put the Brewers on the board first. The lead didn’t last long, however, as...

Brewers: Kolten Wong Providing Much Needed Spark

Brewers second baseman Kolten Wong has been playing with some serious swagger lately. After missing eleven games with an oblique issue that flared up during his St. Louis homecoming, Wong, 30, has been knocking the cover off the ball. After a slow start, he is now slashing .318/.423/.523 with 2 home runs and a .946 […] Brewers: Kolten Wong Providing Much Needed Spark - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - Milwaukee Brewers News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Corbin Burnes looks human, Brewers get blown out by Marlins 8-0

Corbin Burnes looks human, Brewers get blown out by Marlins 8-0

Photo by John Fisher/ The K:BB streak still lives. Box Score The good news for Corbin Burnes is that his insane strikeout-to-walk streak, now up to 49:0 through 29.1 innings pitched on the season, remains intact. The bad news, however, is that his scoreless inning streak came to end in tonight’s game against the Miami Marlins, and not just with one run coming across, either. The game started off oddly, with Jazz Chisholm, Jr. reaching on a wonky base hit that bounced on the infield grass and up and over the head of Kolten Wong. That wound up being harmless, however,...

Milwaukee Brewers activate Kolten Wong, place Jace Peterson on Injured List

Photo by Dilip Vishwanat/MLB Photos via Some swapping at second base and an update on Yelich. The Milwaukee Brewers activated Gold Glove-winning second baseman Kolten Wong on Friday morning, bringing him back from the 10-day Injured List after he was afflicted with what ended up being a relatively minor oblique issue. Wong appeared in seven games before getting laid up, hitting .105/.346/.105 in 26 plate appearances but with his typically excellent defense at the keystone. Wong told reporters that he’s felt 100% healthy for at least the last three days, including...

Brewers sink Pirates, 7-1

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports Crew cruises to win after early innings rally Brewers fans might have tuned in to this contest with some trepidation about the Brewers’ offense. Three key players - Lorenzo Cain, Kolten Wong, and Christian Yelich - are on the IL after Yelich abruptly moved from “improving” to IL status. What is left of the active Crewmates opened the game with their best efforts to quiet such concerns. The Brewers’ first inning contained a boatload of singles and five runs that all came on two outs. Jackie Bradley, Jr. started things off with a...

Brewers’ bullpen, beat-up offense disappoint in 6-1 loss to Pirates

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Brent Suter and Devin Williams were disappointing again, but the bats did not provide much help Friday night The Pittsburgh Pirates have a way of being annoyingly competent while seemingly making the Milwaukee Brewers forget how to play baseball. Friday night’s series opener between the two was one of those games. With a banged-up starting lineup still missing Christian Yelich, along with Lorenzo Cain and Kolten Wong on the injured list, the Brewers struggled to get any kind of offense going. Rookie JT Brubaker held them to a single run over 6...
