After Milwaukee broke out for its most runs of the season, Kyle Lohse hopes his Brewers teammates have enough offense left over to provide him with some much-needed support. Looking for another strong outing, Lohse tries to help the Brewers to a third straight victory Wednesday night against the visiting San Francisco Giants. Lohse (0-1, 2.08 ERA) has pitched well during the first two starts of his Milwaukee career, but has nothing to show for it. The right-hander allowed a run in six innings of a 3-1 loss to Arizona on April 5, then gave up two over seven in a 2-0 defeat against his former team in St. Louis on Friday. "It's a shame you get those kind of outings and sometimes you just don't score," said Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke of Lohse, who signed a three-year, 33 million free agent deal on March 25. "But if he keeps throwing like that, we're going to have a nice year with him." Lohse's teammates would love to provide him with the kind of s...

Craig Counsell - Future GM, somewhere (6/5/12 - the Deluxe Version)

I wanted to acknowledge Craig Counsell, since he's supposed to be in the FSN broadcast booth, at some point. I drew this in June, but it's got a nifty-looking border that looks sort of like an old portfolio...or some sort of sheet music folder. The picture of the cheese was in the original version, as well. Craig Counsell will be a GM, someday. One who won't spend a significant...

Burgos to start Saturday against Cubs

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers optioned right-hander Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville following Thursday's 7-2 victory over San Francisco, opening the door for right-hander Hiram Burgos to come up from Nashville to make his big-league debut in a Saturday start against the Cubs.

Brewers Thursday: Green seeking answers

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers infielder Taylor Green is in Milwaukee on Thursday to have his injured hip examined by team physician Dr. William Raasch. The 26-year-old injured the hip during spring training and was left behind at the team's minor league facility to rehab in extended spring training. Right when he was about to embark on a minor league rehab assignment, Green...

Gallardo in top form in first start after arrest

MILWAUKEE -- His manager and his catcher both noticed it. There was something different about Yovani Gallardo on Thursday afternoon. Pitching for the first time since he was charged with drunken driving early Tuesday morning, Gallardo was sharper than he's been all season. The right-hander not only picked up his first win of 2013 by allowing just one run in six innings, but he...

Brewers must scrap until help, health arrives

MILWAUKEE -- Does an NFL team panic if it loses its first game? Ten games in a Major League Baseball season equate to nearly one full NFL game, or in other words, a small chunk of a very long season. Though the Brewers were 2-8 through their first 10 games of 2013, their season wasn't doomed to the basement of the division. Milwaukee has responded with three straight wins to...

Brewers give K-Rod minor league deal

The Brewers, seeking help for an unsettled bullpen, are turning to one of their former relievers. The team announced Wednesday that it had signed right-hander Francisco Rodriguez to a minor league contract. Rodriguez, 31, will report to the team's spring-training complex in Maryvale, Ariz., and must be assigned within 30 days, the club said. The Brewers entered Wednesday with...

Milwaukee Brewers Option Mike Fiers To Nashville

MLB News: The Milwaukee Brewers optioned pitcher Mike Fiers to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday after struggling in his only start of the season. Flawed with mechanical issues, the Brewers are hoping that he can go down to Nashville and right himself. Fantasy Ramifications: Fiers, even if he makes it back to the big leagues, is no more than a back end starter in a bad rotation. Leave...

Brewers P Yovani Gallardo Arrested On Suspicion Of DUI

ESPN Milwaukee is reporting that Brewers all-star pitcher Yovani Gallardo was arrested Tuesday morning on suspicion of DUI after being pulled over around 2:10 a.m. The 27-year-old Gallardo was reportedly pulled over  for “driving slowly and deviating lanes.” He then allegedly failed a field sobriety test and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.22, according to the sheriff’s office...

Yovanni Gallardo arrested for OWI, and the Brewers need to take action

According to ESPN Milwaukee’s Drew Olson, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo was arrested early Monday morning for OWI. Here’s the nuts and bolts from Olson’s report: “Gallardo, a 27-year-old right-hander, was driving westbound on Interstate 94 near Miller Park when he was pulled over at 2:10 a.m. for driving slowly and deviating lanes. (Milwaukee County Sheriff...

Brewers Play ‘Cheers’ Theme Song To Honor Boston

The Yankees and several over teams around the MLB decided to honor Boston and the victims of Monday’s Marathon bombing by playing Fenway-favorite “Sweet Caroline” over their stadium’s loudspeakers on Tuesday night. The Brewers, however, took a different (but equally as great) route by playing the Cheers theme song during their game last night. Pretty great gesture by Milwaukee...

Brewers 4, Giants 3

Rarely used, Blake Lalli quickly showed he was totally prepared. On the first pitch, the pinch-hitter lifted a long single in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday night that sent the Milwaukee Brewers over the San Francisco Giants 4-3. ''He was in looking at videos, he was looking at the pitcher throw and he knew what he wanted to do with the first pitch,''...
