PHOENIX (AP) -- Randy Wolf and five Milwaukee relievers held the Cleveland Indians to three hits and the Brewers belted four home runs in a 12-2 win Friday. Cristian Guzman lined a single to center with two outs in the seventh off Manny Parra for Cleveland's first hit. Felix Pie had a bloop double in the eighth and Andy LaRoche hit a two-run double in the ninth. Mat Gamel hit a two-run homer, while Nyjer Morgan, Brooks Conrad and Jonathan Lucroy had solo shots for Milwaukee, which totaled 16 hits. Cleveland starter Derek Lowe gave up three runs on four hits over three innings. He also walked three. Wolf walked two over 2 2-3 innings, getting two of the nine strikeouts by Brewers pitchers. The veteran left-hander worked out of the stretch with nobody on base in the third just for practice.

Brewers hope Loe, Veras can solve relief issue

PHOENIX Talk about the Milwaukee Brewers' bullpen and the conversation will undoubtedly focus on right-handers Francisco Rodriguez and John Axford. Last season, after Rodriguez was acquired the night of the All-Star game to set up for Axford, the back end of Milwaukee's bullpen was perhaps the best eighth and ninth inning combination in all of baseball. With a top-flight...

Braun ready to put long winter in the past

PHOENIX After winning his appeal of a 50-game MLB suspension, Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun isn't foolish enough to believe he'll never again hear about his positive test for a banned substance. While talking to Milwaukee sports writers about his two-run home run his first Cactus League hit this season following Milwaukee's 8-6 loss to Cincinnati on Thursday...

Greinke willing to talk contract extension

PHOENIX Zack Greinke still doesn't have an agent but didn't rule out listening should the Milwaukee Brewers express a desire to discuss a possible contract extension.Greinke, 28, is due to make 13.5 million this season, the final year of a four-year, 38 million extension he signed with Kansas City before the 2009 season. He said Thursday following a Cactus League start against...

Morgan Beaned As Brewers Swept In Split-Squad

After a 12-2 win yesterday, the Brewers fell back down to earth, dropping a pair of split-squad games. A team that included Rickie Weeks, Aramis Ramirez, John Axford, and Chris Narveson dropped a 1-6 contest to the Cubs, and a squad including Nyjer Morgan, Carlos Gomez, and Mat Gamel lost to the Giants 3-13. Neither of these games were rife with highlights, but I'm going to run...

Indians sign 12 to one-year contracts

Starting second baseman Jason Kipnis and veterans Lou Marson and Shelley Duncan are among 12 players signed to one-year contracts for 2012 by the Cleveland Indians on Friday. Every player on Cleveland's 40-man roster is now under contract. Also signed were right-handers Vinnie Pestano, Frank Herrmann, Zach McAllister, left-handers Nick Hagadone and Scott Barnes, outfielder...

Indians' Jason Kipnis sings Adele during spring training game (Video)

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis was mic'd up during Wednesday's spring training game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Television viewers were in for a treat as they got to listen to Kipnis singing (or was it mumbling?) Adele's "Someone Like You" while he was playing second base during the second inning.

Indians 2B Jason Kipnis sings Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ during game (video)

If you haven’t heard, there’s this singer that’s beginning to attract the attention of the music-listening masses as of late. Her name is Adele and while I’m no music industry bigwig like Boz Scaggs or David Cassidy, allow me to be the first to put out there that there’s a pretty decent chance this Adele [...]

Hastily Made Cleveland Indians Ballpark Tourism Post

After Camden Yards, the second ballpark to really usher in the new era of baseball stadiums was Jacobs Field in Cleveland. The move away from cookie-cutter to retropark began in Baltimore, but Cleveland wasn’t very far behind. And I finally made the trek to Cleveland in July to see “the Jake” or “Progressive Field” as they now call it. But the trip wasn’t as much about...

2012 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Catchers

1. Carlos Santana, Indians- I like Santana over McCann for two reasons: DH and 1B eligibility. The ability for for Indians to keep Santana’s bat in the lineup nearly every day without him catching every day is a huge bonus. 2. Brian McCann, Braves- Arguably the most consistent catcher of the past 3-4 years.  3. Mike Napoli, Rangers- Big Mike Nap exploded in Texas last year as...
