Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 12 In Review

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 12 In Review

Bleh. The week 12 version of our Milwaukee Brewers was a disappointment. 2-3 ain’t that bad, but when they split the two in Houston, I had high hopes that the weekend three in San Francisco would produce at least two wins. Well, it did produce two wins, but they were on the Giants' side of the ledger. The weak hitting Giants overcame early deficits both Friday and Saturday, with starters Zach Davies and Jimmy Nelson unable to keep the G-men off the scoreboard, and the ‘B’ bullpen unable to keep things close enough for the Brewer bats to come back. Sunday’s Father’s Day win was a...

Brewers salvage series finale against Giants, 5-3

Brewers salvage series finale against Giants, 5-3

Sweep avoided. Box Score The Milwaukee Brewers needed a Father’s Day victory today to avoid being swept on the road by the lowly San Francisco Giants, and they staked starter Chase Anderson to an early lead in the first inning. With two outs, Ryan Braun roped a single off opposing out-getter Jeff Samardzija, who then walked Mike Moustakas. That brought Yasmani Grandal to the plate, and he pushed the game’s first run across with a ground ball single to right. Milwaukee added another run to their ledger in the top of the second inning, but were robbed of another on a freak play in right...

Giants come back to beat Brewers, 8-7

Giants come back to beat Brewers, 8-7

Nelson fell apart in the fifth and the bullpen couldn’t keep the ship afloat The Milwaukee Brewers and Jimmy Nelson could not hold onto an early lead Saturday afternoon in San Francisco. The team would allow the Giants to come back from 5-1 and win the second game in a three-game series. Nelson kept the Giants off the board for the first three innings, at one point retiring 11 batters in a row from the first to the fourth inning, six of those on strikes. His first run came after #oldfriend Stephen Vogt tripled and was driven in on a Kevin Pillar single. While Nelson quieted the Giants,...

Milwaukee Brewers sign pair of pitching prospects from Driveline Baseball

Milwaukee Brewers sign pair of pitching prospects from Driveline Baseball

One of the names is a familiar one. The Milwaukee Brewers continued to deepen their pitching pipeline from independent baseball this past week, inking another pair of hurlers who worked most recently in unaffiliated leagues and also spent time at Driveline Baseball: Recent Driveline signees Karsen Lindell and Jackson Sigman both look to be headed to the Rocky Mountain roster for the #Brewers.— Toby H (@YouKnowAndThat) June 13, 2019 Jackson Sigman, who turned 24 a few days ago, was passed over out of West Virginia in 2017 and began his career by pitching in the Frontier League with...

Game Thread #70: Milwaukee Brewers (39-30) at San Francisco Giants (29-38)

Jimmy Nelson (0-1, 12.00 ERA) vs. Madison Bumgarner (3-6, 3.83 ERA) The Milwaukee Brewers look to even up the series against the San Francisco Giants. Lucky for us fans, game two of the West Coast matchup is an afternoon game. Jimmy Nelson makes his second start in his return from labrum surgery and hopes to see significantly better results than his three inning, four run outing 10 days ago against Miami. Meanwhile, Madison Bumgarner is on the mound for San Francisco. If any Brewers decides to stare at a home run, they better be prepared for a long a tedious lecture from baseball’s...

Lorenzo Cain has been unable as leadoff hitter for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2019

Lorenzo Cain has been unable as leadoff hitter for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2019

He hasn’t been able to carry over the patience he demonstrated last season. When the Milwaukee Brewers signed Lorenzo Cain to a five-year deal before the start of the 2018 season, part of the justification was the front office’s belief that he was a player who was still ascending offensively despite entering his age-32 season. David Stearns and company looked prescient as year one of the contract played out, with Cain serving as a catalyst for the lineup out of the leadoff spot on his way to posting arguably the finest season of his career. Lorenzo’s newfound patience at the plate —...

Brewers succumb to Giants home runs, lose 5-3

Giants score all their runs on home runs while Brewers don’t hit one. Box Score The Brewers are third in all of baseball and lead the National League in home runs. The Giants are 3rd to last in baseball and 2nd to last in MLB. The Brewers had hit more than double of the home runs that the Giants have. None of that mattered tonight, as the Giants were the ones hitting the home runs. The Brewers did take the lead first in this one. Orlando Arcia led off the top of the third with a walk, then went to third on a Lorenzo Cain single. In the next at-bat to Christian Yelich, Buster Posey missed...

Zach Davies gets the first start in the Giants series for the Brewers. After a split in Houston, the Brewers are off to the West Coast, spending a week there to face both the Giants and Padres. The Giants are up first, and they’ve been going through another rough season as they are looking to rebuild their team. Zach Davies will be up first, looking to put up a better outing then his previous start against the Pirates. He’ll face Drew Pomeranz, who had a scoreless appearance in his last start but has allowed at least two runs in his five starts before that. Here’s the starting nine...
