Carlos Gomez raced home following two throwing errors after he stole second base in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. Gomez entered the game as a pinch-runner for Aramis Ramirez, who led off by drawing a five-pitch walk from Diamondbacks reliever Patrick Corbin (2-4). After Corey Hart flew out, Gomez stole second, jumped to his feet as the throw from catcher Miguel Montero ended up in center field. Outfielder Gerardo Parra picked up the ball but threw wildly to third, allowing Gomez to score the winning run. John Axford (2-5) pitched a scoreless ninth inning.

Veteran Hernandez finds role with Brewers

MILWAUKEE At 37 years old, showcasing a fastball that no longer beats many major league batters and a breaking ball that has, at times, dipped below the speed limit outside Miller Park, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Livan Hernandez doesn't cast the intimidating shadow that he once did on the mound. Once a World Series MVP and an imposing innings-eater when the Florida Marlins wona...

Greinke looks to avenge All-Star snub

The Milwaukee Brewers' Zack Greinke can achieve a rare feat Monday night when he makes his first start at home in nearly a month. Greinke will seek to improve to 16-0 all-time at Miller Park and earn his fifth straight victory overall when he faces the resurgent Miami Marlins, losers of eight in a row against Milwaukee. Greinke (9-2, 2.82 ERA) hasn't pitched at home since...

Here to stay, Bauer ready for 'fun' home debut

PHOENIX -- Bauer Mania comes to Chase Field on Tuesday -- and it's here to stay. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson confirmed Monday that rookie right-hander Trevor Bauer is expected to be part of the team's rotation for the rest of the season shortly after Bauer expressed excitement about making his home debut Tuesday night against the Padres. "I'm not too anxious...

Braun: 'It's a tremendous honor'

MILWAUKEE For Brewers star left fielder Ryan Braun, his fifth All-Star game invite -- a selection that was decided by player vote on Sunday -- put him in a special class of Milwaukee Brewers. That's because only two other Brewers' greats, Robin Yount and Cecil Cooper, can claim a similar honor in a Milwaukee uniform. This year, however, Braun wasn't elected as a starter...

Gomez's blazing speed gets the win for Crew

By ANDREW GRUMAN Speed kills. It also changes how a team plays the game, just ask the Arizona Diamondbacks. When Brewers manager Ron Roenicke turned to Carlos Gomez to pinch run for Aramis Ramirez, it had the D-backs and their rookie left hander Patrick Corbin worried. That wasn't a surprise. Arizona watched Gomez' speed end its season in last...

Milwaukee Brewers: Zack Greinke Likely to Be Traded

Zack Greinke can become a free agent after this season, and unless the Milwaukee Brewers can extend his contract in the next week or so, they will start trying to trade the 28-year-old. As Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported this week, Milwaukee has not yet made a decision on what to do with Greinke. The San Francisco Giants gave righty Matt Cain a six-year, $127.5 million deal...

How crazy is Aaron Hill’s “double cycle?”

A few days ago (June 29) the Diamondbacks Aaron Hill hit for the cycle.  A nice feat, but nothing I’d normally still be writing about today; except that he also did it eleven days earlier, on June 18.  The last time anybody even accomplished it twice in one season was in 1931, when some guy named Babe Herman did it for the Brooklyn Dodgers.  Statistically hitting for the cycle...

On Paper, Upset Potential, Don’t Bother: Hill’s Cycles, Bolt not that fast, and It’s Hot!

On Paper Aaron Hill Cylces The Diamondbacks, Aaron Hill, has done something that is amazingly rare. Hitting for the cycle is on the same level as a no hitter. 294 times a player has hit for a cycle in a game and 276 times has a pitcher accomplished a no-no. On Friday night, Hill’s triple in the 6th clinched the cycle for Arizona 2nd baseman. The cycle is a great feat yet what Hill...

Braun earns fifth consecutive All-Star nod

By ANDREW GRUMAN For the first time since 2005 the Milwaukee Brewers will be represented by just one player at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. Left fielder Ryan Braun will be the lone Brewer headed to Kansas City for the Mid-Summer Classic, but for the first time in five years, he won't be starting. Neck-and-neck with Giants outfielder Melky...
