Brewers avoid no-hitter, but are shutout by Cardinals 3-0

Photo by Dilip Vishwanat/ Davies pitches well in his return, but the offense goes stagnant The Milwaukee Brewers were nearly no-hit and failed to score a run in the series opener against the St. Louis Cardinals. St. Louis Cardinals starter Daniel Hudson kept the Brewers offense quiet, only allowing four walks in his 6.2 innings and striking out seven. Hudson was lifted after 111 dominant pitches. Giovanny Gallegos replaced him and carried the no hitter to 8.2 innings. With four outs remaining, Yasmani Grandal stepped to the plate. He broke up the no hitter with his 20th double of the...

Brewers activate Zach Davies from the IL for tonight’s start, option Aaron Wilkerson to Triple-A

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Brewers rotation is getting closer to full strength. After struggling over three starts, Zach Davies had been placed on the injured list with back spasms. However, the injury wasn’t deemed to be too severe, and Davies was pitching on the side while on the IL. After 15 days on the IL, he was activated today and will make his start tonight against the Cardinals. Davies had been struggling before going on the IL. In his last three starts, he’s allowed a total of 17 earned runs over 13 innings. Before that, he had four straight starts with one or...

Series Preview: Milwaukee Brewers @ St. Louis Cardinals

Photo by Joe Robbins/ Hello darkness, our old friend When you get into late August, just about every stretch of games is The Most Important Of The Season for a team with playoff aspirations. But for the Brewers, this next stretch of games probably actually is The Most Important Of The Season. A total of 13 of their next 18 games come against the Cubs and the Cardinals, the two teams ahead of them in the NL Central (and also the wildcard standings, if you figure only one team from the Central is making the wildcard game). This is going to be one of their best chances all year to make up...

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 21 in Review

Even Hernan gave up a dinger | Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Lots of runs...except when there weren’t Our Milwaukee Brewers scored 35 runs in five game this week. That’s seven runs a game. And it includes a game that they only scored one in. So in the other four they averaged 8.5 runs per game. They lost the one that they only scored a singleton in, which isn’t too surprising. But they only went 2-2 in the other four, because they allowed a whopping 10 plus runs in those games. I mean, really. I guess you can rejoice that in a week where you gave up an average of almost nine runs a...

Brewers’ pitchers allow 8 home runs as Nationals beat up on Milwaukee 16-8

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Good news is the Brewers’ bullpen got a day of rest with a trip to St. Louis looming Over the past two games, the Washington Nationals have looked like one of the best hitting teams in all of baseball. Luckily the Brewers were able to hang with the Nationals’ offense and win last night. Today the Nationals tied a club record for home runs in a single game with 8. Chase Anderson and Aaron Wilkerson were the primary victims of the Washington assault. Chase Anderson had been quite good of late, but his command was off severally in this one as he was behind most...

After using 10 pitchers during last night’s 14-inning, 15-14 victory over the Washington Nationals, it was less a matter of “if” the Milwaukee Brewers would make a move for a fresh arm and more “how many.” We got our answer this morning as the team has recalled two hurlers from Triple-A San Antonio: RHP Jay Jackson and RHP Aaron Wilkerson have been recalled from Triple-A San Antonio.

Brewers somehow beat Nationals 15-14 in seesawing slugfest that lasts 14 innings

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports If it wasn’t for Christian Yelich, we’d have nothing The Milwaukee Brewers managed to slug out a 14-inning victory against the Washington Nationals, capturing game two 15-14. The game was about nothing but offense. Milwaukee got the scoring underway when the team showed it can, in fact, hit with runners in scoring position. Christian Yelich went to the plate with the bases loaded and hit a one-out single in the top of the third to give the Brewers an early two-run lead. The Crew kept it going that inning, with Keston Hiura adding on with a two-run...

Milwaukee Brewers have worked out Jung-ho Kang, but no deal yet

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ And hopefully one does not come. The Pittsburgh Pirates released infielder Jung-ho Kang on August 4th, ending the Korean import’s stormy five-year tenure with the organization. Kang was signed to a four-year contract with an option back in 2015, becoming one of the first players to receive a notable guarantee from an MLB team after making a name for himself in the Korean Baseball Organization. Kang won MVP of the KBO in 2014 after hitting .356/.459/.739 with 40 homers in 117 games and was able to immediately translate that success against big league pitching. Kang...
