Ryan Braun hits first spring home run, but Milwaukee Brewers fall to Royals 8-5

A rough start from Jimmy Nelson led to the Brewers’ tenth spring loss. Nelson only lasted 3 innings and gave up 5 runs in his first loss of the spring. Despite giving up his fair share of runs, Nelson managed to strike out 6 Royals batters. After the game, he told Brewers reporters that he felt good about his offspeed pitches. While Nelson struggled, the Brewers offense had some success. Ryan Braun hit his first home run of the spring in the first inning, a 2-run shot off Royals pitcher Nathan Karns. Manny Piña continued his great offensive showing in the spring with a homer of his own,...

Milwaukee Brewers: Tiny Violins – Poor Ryan Braun Wants Hourly Wage

Ryan Braun’s favorite Spring Training at-bats are first-pitch double plays to get the games over with as quickly as possible, as he is not being “paid by the hour.” While the comment is not garnering any sympathy for poor Mr. Braun, does he have a point that Spring Training is too long?

Milwaukee Brewers 2017 Preview by Position: Left Field

Milwaukee Brewers 2017 Preview by Position: Left Field

Ryan Braun returns for his 11th season in Milwaukee after a winter on the trading block. Ryan Braun made his Cactus League debut for the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend as he prepares for his 11th Major League season, all with our local nine. Since debuting back in 2007, Braun has served as a constant force in the middle of the Brewers’ lineup, though lately there’s been less certainty about his presence than in years past. With the organization entrenched in rebuild mode, Braun stands out as the lone remaining pillar of the franchise’s last playoff run back in 2011. After Braun...

Jesus Aguilar homers again as Milwaukee Brewers beat Padres, 5-3

Jesus Aguilar homers again as Milwaukee Brewers beat Padres, 5-3

The slugging first baseman continues to make a strong case to make the Opening Day roster. After losing a pair of split-squad games Friday, the Brewers started a new winning streak with a 5-3 win over the San Diego Padres. Ryan Braun made his second appearance in a Cactus League game, and got the Brewers offense started early with an RBI double in the first inning to drive in Eric Thames. Matt Garza pitched into the third inning today, but ran into a bit of trouble allowing a single to former Brewer Luis Sardinas (who was caught stealing by Jett Bandy), two walks, and then an RBI single to...

Spring Training Game Thread #15: San Diego Padres @ Milwaukee Brewers

The Cactus Crew tries to get back on the winning track After losing a pair of split-squad games on Friday, the Milwaukee Brewers hope to start a new Cactus League winning streak this afternoon against the San Diego Padres. Ryan Braun is back in the lineup today, and the nine that Craig Counsell is sending out there today looks pretty close to what we might be able to expect once the games start counting for real (minus Jonathan Villar, who’s away at the World Baseball Classic and whose Dominican Republican faces off against Team USA today). First pitch is at 2:05 p.m. CST on FS Wisconsin...

Defense takes day off as Milwaukee Brewers fall to Diamondbacks, White Sox

[Hernan face intensifies] The Brewers six-game win streak came to a screeching halt Friday, as the Brewers dropped a pair of split squad games to the Chicago White Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks. At the homestead, Lewis Brinson’s eighth inning two-run homer, his second in three days, seemed like it would hand Milwaukee a come from behind victory. Unfortunately, Chicago’s brand new super-prospect Yoan Moncada spoiled Ryan Braun’s spring debut. His two-run double in the top of the ninth put the White Sox back on top and made Chicago (AL/B) 4-3 winners. Braun’s first game was uneventful,...
