Rogers gets lucky, picks up second win

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke had a touch of relief in his voice when he spoke of Mark Rogers' outing on Sunday, a 7-0 shutout win. He knew, as well as everyone else knew, that the Brewers and especially Rogers had gotten awful lucky in the team's rubber match victory over the Pirates. Rogers finished the game with five scoreless innings. But judging by his stuff and control...

Mark Rogers’ Repertoire, Illustrated

Milwaukee right-hander Mark Rogers made his sixth start on Sunday since his late-July recall from Brewers Triple-A affiliate Nashville — and, while he was slightly less impressive yesterday (5.0 IP, 4.66 xFIP) than in previous outings, Rogers both (a) allowed zero runs (which is kinda the best number of runs a pitcher can allow) and (b) escaped with a still very reasonable 89 xFIP...

Responsibility helps Gomez reach potential

MILWAUKEE For the six years he's been in the major leagues, Carlos Gomez's career has been marked by potential. A potential five-tool player, Gomez's expectations had always been sky-high. He was a premium defender, they said. He had the power to anchor a lineup, some even thought. And for so long, with those expectations levied on him, Gomez struggled to make his...

Aramis Ramirez is True Blue Brew Crew

When the Brewers first signed Aramis Ramirez I was like "cool, now most of Prince Fielder's production has been replaced and he is not Casey McGehee." I wasn't like Zack Greinke acquisition excited or even Shaun Marcum trade excited. He was just kind of there. You knew he'd be good, but you knew he wouldn't be really exciting either. Aramis Ramirez is just...

Aramis Ramirez's quietly great season

You know the old bit about if a tree falls in the woods? The same thing holds true for baseball. If a player plays great for a team out of contention, does anyone notice? Well, perhaps fantasy baseball players notice. But it is safe to say that this Fan has not noticed what a fine season Aramis Ramirez is having for the Milwaukee Brewers. His season would probably still be beyond...

Brewers 15, Cubs 4

Aramis Ramirez hit two of Milwaukee's five homers to lead the Brewers to a 15-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night. Ramirez, who played for the Cubs from 2003-11, hit a two-run shot in the fifth and a solo homer in the ninth as Milwaukee beat Chicago for the sixth straight time. Ramirez's second homer followed a three-run shot by Ryan Braun that landed on Waveland...

Brewers' Fiers limits Pirates in 6-5 win

Mike Fiers pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Aramis Ramirez had a go-ahead three-run double in the seventh and the Milwaukee Brewers held on to win their fourth consecutive game, 6-5 over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. Fiers (7-6) tied a career high with 10 strikeouts. The rookie allowed three runs on five hits in 6 2-3 innings. Ramirez went 2 for 4 and scored...

Braun, Ramirez, Hart order up the hits

MILWAUKEE Ryan Braun's ninth-inning home run towered over the crowd at Wrigley Field as it exploded off of his bat and onto Waveland Ave., out of the Chicago ballpark. Four hundred and four feet off his bat with the wind blowing in, Braun's moonshot would be tough for anyone in baseball to replicate. "It's Ryan Braun," joked fellow outfielder Carlos Gomez...

Top Play: Brewers hit back-to-back-back home runs in ninth

The Milwaukee Brewers proved to be spoilers for Cubs fans at Wrigley filed on Monday night, as Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez and Corey Hart hit three consecutive home runs in the ninth inning. The Cubs entered the ninth with a two run lead, only to finish the game on the short end of a 15 to 4 romp. The nine-run ninth inning began with a there-run blast off the bat of reigning NL MVP...

Brewers bash Bucs

The Pirates played an absolutely dreadful game on Sunday and dropped the rubber match with the Brewers 7-0. Erik Bedard pitched well for the first few innings but got shelled for back-to-back three-spots in the fourth and fifth innings. Carlos Gomez hit a three-run homer after two 2-out singles to open the scoring, and Aramis Ramirez blasted one to center in the fifth. Bedard is...
