Carlos Gomez hit a go-ahead two-run double, Jonathan Lucroy had three hits and an RBI and five Milwaukee relievers combined for five scoreless innings as the Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 Tuesday night.
Mike Fiers (1-2), Michael Gonzalez, John Axford, Brandon Kintzler and Jim Henderson pitched Milwaukee to only its fourth victory in its last 19 games by allowing a total of just four singles. Henderson threw the ninth for his ninth save, striking out pinch-hitter Scott Van Slyke with runners on first and second.
Zach Greinke (2-1), making his second start since returning from a broken left collarbone, gave up season highs of nine hits, five earned runs and three walks in four-plus innings against his former team en route to his first career loss at Miller Park. The right-hander, traded by the Brewers to the Los Angeles Angels last July 27 before signing with the Dodgers in the offseason, had won his first 15 decisions in Milwaukee.
Greinke gave up four runs in the fourt...

MILWAUKEE -- Corey Hart had a big smile on his face as he took the field Monday afternoon. The recovery from offseason knee surgery has probably dragged on longer than he anticipated, but he's finally starting to see an end in sight.
Hart ran outside and took batting practice on the field for the first time prior to Monday's game against the Dodgers, but a rehab assignment...
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Kyle Lohse will miss Saturday's start against Pittsburgh with irritation in his right elbow.
The injury popped up roughly two or three starts ago, as Lohse didn't recover the next day as well as he'd like. Right-hander Mike Fiers will start Saturday in his place.
Signed to a three-year deal just one week before the start of...
Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Alan Williams has been suspended for 50 games under minor league baseball's drug program following a second positive test for a drug of abuse.
The 23-year-old is 0-2 with a 3.00 ERA this year in three starts and 10 relief appearances for Huntsville of Double-A Southern League. He signed with the Brewers' organization in May 2011 after he pitched...
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers are moving closer to getting a pair of left-handers back from the disabled list as Tom Gorzelanny and Chris Narveson both took steps forward Tuesday.
Gorzelanny threw a simulated game to hitters on the field prior to Tuesday's game against Los Angeles, and he could be activated for Friday's game against Pittsburgh.
Brewers manager Ron...
MILWAUKEE -- Yovani Gallardo didn't pitch a bad game Monday night, but he did make three mistakes.
But Gallardo had to be perfect in order to beat Clayton Kershaw, and he wasn't. The Dodgers left-hander continued his dominance by tossing a complete game, three-hitter in Los Angeles' 3-1 win over Milwaukee.
It was a story line almost identical to the one written after...

MILWAUKEE -- Carlos Gomez knew Zack Greinke was smiling when he struck him out with two runners on in the first inning.
He also knew exactly what his former teammate was going to throw him when he got up for his third at-bat of the day in the fifth inning. Gomez got exactly what he was looking for and laced a two-run double to left, ending Greinke's day.
For the first time...

Your browser does not support iframes.Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is known more for his hitting prowess rather than his ability to patrol the outfield. But on this play it was his glove that stole the show.
Yesterday, I did a short piece about a feature that minor league analyst/writer/scout Nathaniel Stoltz published in Big Leauges Magazine that focused on some Nashville Sounds players. As it turns out, Nathaniel has a nice youtube channel featuring some plate appearances and pitching performances by the Brewers Triple-A players, as well! Really nice clarity, here, for seeing movement...
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw scattered three singles in his second complete game of the year and Matt Kemp hit his first home run since April 24, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.
Ryan Braun managed a pair of singles and Yuniesky Betancourt also singled for the only hits off Kershaw (5-2). The lefty struck out five...
(Some jabroni comes back to Section 118 in the middle of the fifth inning…obscuring the view of other fans just as Carlos Gomez hits a two-run double off Zack Greinke.)
It’s my understanding that at one time, fans attended baseball games in what we would now consider formal attire. While few would argue we should return to the rigid customs of that era, there is something...
