MILWAUKEE Marco Estrada's body language screamed of frustration out on the mound Sunday afternoon. Afterwards, that frustration was mixed with anger as the right-hander's inability to help his team snap its losing streak was eating away at him in the home clubhouse. Estrada lasted just 3-13 innings, allowing eight earned runs while walking five in Milwaukee's 10-1 loss to St. Louis, giving the Cardinals their first ever four-game sweep of the Brewers. "It was one of the worst outings of my career," Estrada said. "I had no idea where the ball was going. It started off pretty good early. Even though I gave up a couple of hits, I felt pretty good. Next thing you know, I made a lot of pitches in the second inning and I couldn't find it after that. It was just one of those outings where I had no clue what I was doing up there. I felt lost. It was a bad outing." Walks aren't usually a problem for Estrada. He entered Sunday with just seven for th...

The lamest baseball jersey of all-time?

I can almost guarantee that the idea for these Brewers jerseys was more the wife’s decision than her husband’s. Here’s hoping one of his buddies got a similar Milwaukee jersey that reads “Totally Whipped” to go along with his “Since” custom shirt, but that would imply that this guy gets to go to baseball games (or anywhere) with his friends, and we all know that anyone...

Estrada, Brewers look to get back on track

The St. Louis Cardinals are finding Miller Park's dimensions very much to their liking. That doesn't bode well for Milwaukee right-hander Marco Estrada. The Cardinals will try to continue their power surge and complete a four-game sweep of the Brewers on Sunday. Jon Jay homered for the first time since April 10 and drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning, while Allen...

Brewers sign familiar face Dillard to minor league deal

MILWAUKEE When an injury depleted the pitching depth at Triple-A Nashville, the Milwaukee Brewers turned to a familiar face to fill the void. The Brewers signed right-hander Tim Dillard to a minor league contract Saturday assigning him to Nashville, where he will be available to the Sounds Saturday night at Round Rock. Dillard fills the roster spot of right-hander Chris Jakubauskas...

Brewers made the right choice by keeping Gomez and dumping Morgan

It was just couple years ago that Nyjer Morgan was dancing around, yelling F-bombs into the live television camera, after the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks in a NLDS showdown. Of course, the Brewers made it to the NLCS against the St Louis Cardinals. The two teams developed a small rivalry as Morgan made comments saying along the lines that the Cardinals will not...

Greinke-Segura trade already paying dividends

MILWAUKEE Ever since Robin Yount traded his infielder's glove for an outfielder's mitt after the 1984 season, the Milwaukee Brewers have been searching for a shortstop. From Ernie Riles and Dale Sveum to the likes of Royce Clayton and Yuniesky Betancourt while being teased by Gary Sheffield, Pat Listach and J.J. Hardy along the way the Brewers have trotted 18 different...

Betancourt has been pleasant surprise for Brewers

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By ANDREW WAGNER Associated Press At least in recent memory, few Milwaukee Brewers have drawn the ire of fans more than Yuniesky Betancourt. Acquired in December 2010 as part of the Zack Greinke trade, Betancourt was almost universally reviled and his free-swinging ways did little to change any first impressions. While it was no surprise when the Brewers...

Milwaukee Brewers Activate Third Baseman Aramis Ramirez

The Milwaukee Brewers have activated third baseman Aramis Ramirez from the 15-day disabled list. Ramirez, who has been recovering from a left knee issue, will be eased back into full-time duty. None-the-less, the Brewers will glady take him back into their lineup. The star will help solidify the middle of the Milwaukee order. The post Milwaukee Brewers Activate Third Baseman Aramis...

Jay lifts Cards over Brewers in 9th

Kyle Lohse failed to find his rhythm against his former team. The St. Louis Cardinals pounded out 11 hits against him in six innings on the way to a 6-1 victory. ''They just never gave me an opportunity to settle in. It was really a battle for me all night,'' Lohse said. ''It wasn't my best night. I felt good starting out but then it just kind of got...

Cardinals sneak past Brewers in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (AP) Jon Jay homered and drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth and Allen Craig and Daniel Descalso each hit home runs to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-6 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. Shane Robinson singled to center and then took second on center fielder Carlos Gomez's fielding error off Jim Henderson (2-1) who started the ninth for Milwaukee with...

Brewers Sure Don’t Match Up Well Against St. Louis

(Photo: Jeff Curry/US Presswire) My understanding is the Cardinals had never swept a four-game series against the Brewers.  But after watching those four games, it’s hard to believe the Brewers have ever won against St. Louis.  In three of the games, the Cardinals jumped out to big leads and never looked back.  On Saturday, Milwaukee actually showed some life, scoring five...

Wainwright takes the mound this afternoon in Milwaukee

(AP) -- While Adam Wainwright has had plenty of success against the Milwaukee Brewers, Yovani Gallardo hasn't been able to figure out why the St. Louis Cardinals give him so much trouble. St. Louis seeks a fifth straight win Saturday while sending host Milwaukee to a fourth consecutive defeat. Wainwright (4-2, 2.03 ERA) has gotten off to a solid start, striking out 43 while...

Rangers-Brewers Preview

After a promising start to a nine-game homestand, the Milwaukee Brewers are in the midst of a five-game skid. The Brewers look to avoid a season-high sixth straight loss as they open a two-game interleague set against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night at Miller Park. Milwaukee (14-16) held a 22-12 scoring advantage over Pittsburgh to win the first two on the home stretch, but...
