Brewers' Tom Gorzelanny to the DL

The Milwaukee Brewers, already lacking in the pitching department, have lost Tom Gorzelanny for at least the next 15 days.  The Brewers reliever was having a solid season, but he has been placed on the disabled list as of yesterday.

Brewers Pitching Ranks Last in NL (But It Could Be Worse)

(Photo: Mike McGinnis/Getty Images North America) As of this writing, the Brewers pitching staff is last in the league in earned run average, as well as runs allowed.  While the bullpen has had its ups and downs, the starting pitching has been remarkably ineffective – with the notable exception of Kyle Lohse.  Although he’s cooled down somewhat, Lohse is still the only...

Lohse sporting historically low run support numbers

MILWAUKEE One of the extreme oddities in baseball happens every once in a while when a team just can't score when a certain pitcher takes the mound. It's completely unexplainable if that team has an above average offense. The Milwaukee Brewers do, and they simply can't score for Kyle Lohse. In the seven games Lohse has started this season, the Brewers have scored 14...

Brewers' Gallardo feels 'out of whack' on the mound of late

Yet again, Yovani Gallardo didn't look like himself, and now it's getting concerning. The usually reliable Gallardo put together another frustrating outing Friday night against Cincinnati, throwing 100 pitches while lasting just four innings, walking five and allowing three runs in Milwaukee's 4-3 loss to the Reds. "Command obviously sucked," Gallardo said...

Milwaukee Brewers Disable Tom Gorzelanny, Recall Mike Fiers

The Milwaukee Brewers had to place left-handed pitcher Tom Gorzelanny on the 15-day disabled list due to shoulder tendinitis.

Brewers turn to Peralta to end skid

The starters have been abysmal in this series between the Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers, and two more with less than imposing ERAs are up next. These NL Central bullpens have combined for 17 innings in the first two games, but relief may not be in sight with the Brewers' Wily Peralta set to face the Reds' Bronson Arroyo in Sunday's finale in Cincinnati. The...

Brewers slipping behind Reds, Cardinals as slump continues

In order to have any chance to compete for a division title, the Milwaukee Brewers are going to have to beat the two teams currently sitting at the top of the division. As the calendar heads toward Memorial Day, the Brewers are clearly not playing as well as St. Louis and Cincinnati, having lost seven straight and nine of 10 to the two favorites in the National League Central. The...

Reds, Brewers to meet for first time in 2013

Yovani Gallardo knows that even though it's early, the upcoming stretch of road games is a key one for the Milwaukee Brewers. Jay Bruce finally homered again for the Cincinnati Reds, and facing Gallardo could help him get on track. These NL Central rivals meet for the first time in 2013 on Friday night in Cincinnati, with NL batting leader Carlos Gomez of the Brewers looking...

Series notes versus Brewers and more

  The Reds will aim for a winning homestand this weekend when they welcome the Milwaukee Brewers to town. But to do so they will have to sweep the three-game set after dropping two out of the first three games of this homestand to the Atlanta Braves. Easier said than done, right? Friday's affair will pit surging rookie Tony Cingrani against Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo...

Reds 5, Brewers 1

Lutz, who made his big league debut on April 29, homered off Wily Peralta (3-3), and pinch-hitter Xavier Paul homered in the seventh, sending Milwaukee to its fourth straight loss and...
