Marco Estrada allowed three hits over seven innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the sloppy Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1 on Monday night to snap a four-game losing streak.
Norichika Aoki went 3 for 5 with three RBIs and two stolen bases for the Brewers. Jean Segura added three hits and three stolen bases as Milwaukee ran wild against Pittsburgh backup catcher Mike McKenry. The Brewers stole six bases in all and took advantage of three Pittsburgh errors to win for just the second time this month.
Estrada (3-2) bounced back from a rough start against St. Louis by striking out five and issuing just one walk to remain unbeaten against the Pirates.
Burnett (3-4) allowed four runs in seven innings and pushed his National League-leading strikeout total to 72, but Pittsburgh couldn't extend its winning streak to a season-high four games.
The Brewers came in just 1-9 in their last 10 games and played without star Ryan Braun, given the night off as a precaution after a neck issue that bot...
BEST OF MAXIM
Self admittedly, Marco Estrada had one of the worst outings of his career the last time he took the mound.
After an extra two days off with two extra bullpen sessions with Brewers pitching coach Rick Kranitz, Estrada bounced back with his best start of the season. The right-hander allowed just three hits and one run over seven innings to help Milwaukee snap its four-game losing...
It wasn't the best of weeks on the field for the Milwaukee Brewers, but young shortstop Jean Segura continued to open eyes in his first full season in the big leagues.
Segura was named the National League's Player of the Week after hitting .500 with a league-best .950 slugging percentage over the week of May 6-12.
The 23-year-old had multiple hits in five of Milwaukee&...
At 15-20, the Milwaukee Brewers still could rescue their season. But after going 1-9 in their last 10 games, the team has incited all kinds of despair among a fan base that is restless for a winner. Fans waited all winter for baseball and so far most of what the Brewers have done on the field hardly qualifies as baseball at all. Technically...
Here are the solutions to yesterday's anagrams, pertaining to names of current and former Milaukee Brewers players and managers.
JOY! LUNCH ON A RAT - Jonathan Lucroy
LANDSCAPE - Dan Plesac
NONE ROCKIER - Ron Roenicke
OUCH! SCAR PAIN - Chris Capuano
TEARS INJURE GUY - Jerry Augustine
YUCKY BARITONE TUNES - Yuniesky Betancourt
Runs have been difficult to come by at times for the Milwaukee Brewers, and scoring essentially has been a problem each time Kyle Lohse pitches.
Reversing that trend, though, may not be easy against Pittsburgh Pirates starter Jeff Locke, who takes the mound at home Tuesday night.
The Brewers (16-20) have been outscored by 25 runs while losing nine of 11 this month, beginning with...
I’ve been a big backer of Owgust, the Barrel Man, and it’s been very cool to see him pop up prominently in the Brewers’ recent YOUniform contest (here’s hoping Ben’s design with the Barrel Man becomes part of the regular-season uniform options). Seriously, Barrel Man rules, Ball ‘N Glove drools. I do love the Ball ‘N Glove (or Ball in Glove or Ball and Glove...
These are the games the Milwaukee Brewers have to win, but they continue to let winnable games slip through their grasp.
With the chance to grab a win Wednesday night in Pittsburgh thanks to a pitching performance that was certainly good enough, John Axford allowed the Pirates to tie the game in the eighth while Milwaukee's offense went silent.
As the Brewers ran thin on bullpen...
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.
McCutch going clutch in extras….walk off
My friend asks me on Google Talk today where I was valuing Andrew McCucthen. Now, walk off home runs aren’t a category in any fantasy league I know, but if they were, you’d be happy with Cutch tonight. This was your basic late inning relief no out walk off home run. On a 2-2 count, Cutch took Fiers over the right center field wall...
Lake Erie Crushers shortstop Juan Sanchez may have taken what fans perceive as a step back from the Nashville Sounds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, to a Frontier League team in Avon, OH, but he’s still hungry.
At least, he better be.
There are two groups of players that find themselves in the Frontier League, those who were undrafted coming out of college looking...
When the Milwaukee Brewers win games, typically it comes by way of the home run.

Monday’s game was not your typical Brewers-Pirates game, except for perhaps the end result.
Milwaukee stole six bases, hit no home runs and the Pirates committed three...
Don Lutz hit his first career home run, a three-run drive off the right-field foul pole in the second inning that led the Cincinnati Reds over the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
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...
Jeff Locke and Kyle Lohse at 7:05. Beat the Brewers once. That's a place to start, right?
Bonus Baseball and walkoff homers. That’s what I live for. Things are right on schedule to win this series. It won’t matter though. If you believe in curses, which I do, you know this season is over. Why is this season over? A very, very bad omen. It was a Wednesday. October 14th, 1992 to…
After their short trip to New York, the Pirates have seven straight home games against the Brewers and Astros. The Brewers have been awful since we saw them last, dropping nine of their last ten games (counting the loss the Pirates dealt them on their way out of Miller Park). The Astros are a hilariously terrible bumbling excuse of a baseball team. The Pirates should win at least...
