MILWAUKEE -- Jim Henderson felt he threw a handful of good sliders during Tuesday's ninth inning, but the one slider that hung ended up costing him and the Milwaukee Brewers the game. Pirates pinch hitter Travis Snider crushed a 2-2 offering from Henderson into the seats in left center field for the decisive run in Pittsburgh's historic 4-3 victory at Miller Park. With their 81st win of the season, the Pirates will not have a losing season for the first time since 1992. Not only will Pittsburgh go for the sweep Wednesday night, but it will try to clinch its first winning season in 21 years. "The game will mess with you," Henderson said. "I threw a few good sliders that outing and the one bad one I threw gets knocked out of the park. It just sucks. It sucks when the team comes back and battles hard and scores to tie it up again in the eighth, and I've let them down the last few times I've been out. "Those are the things I take hard, seeing ...

Brewers jump on Liriano to avoid second straight sweep

MILWAUKEE -- With a couple of regulars out of the lineup, the Milwaukee Brewers makeshift lineup Wednesday night seemed destined to fall victim to Pittsburgh's red-hot lefty Francisco Liriano.

Zack Greinke trade continues to pay off for Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- It's a trade that will be talked about in Milwaukee for years to come. Unfortunately for the Los Angeles Angels, they will hear about each time Jean Segura's name is thrown around.

Ex-Tide Pitcher Up To Majors

The Number '21' Means More to Pittsburgh than We Thought

The season the Milwaukee Brewers are having is tough on the fans.  Remember, though, it was ‘only’ back in 2005 that the Brewers snapped a nasty streak of 12 consecutive losing seasons with an 81-81 record.  That non-winning, break-even season would be all Brewers fans could hang their hats on until finally the 2007 club finished 83-79.  Since those streaks were broken, the...

Brewers' bats trump Pittsburgh's ace, 9-3

Baseball is a difficult game to figure out at times. By all appearances the Milwaukee Brewers were overmatched when they took the field Wednesday night. They had lost five in a row were fielding yet another watered-down lineup and the first-place Pittsburgh Pirates had ace Francisco Liriano on the mound.
