Aside from struggling against one NL Central rival, the Milwaukee Brewers' Yovani Gallardo has been superb against every other club he's faced since the second half last season. The San Diego Padres know just how dominant Gallardo can be. Gallardo looks to remain perfect at Petco Park as the Brewers conclude a three-game set with the Padres, who send veteran Jeff Suppan to the hill Wednesday in place of the injured Cory Luebke. Gallardo dropped to 1-2 and saw his ERA balloon to 6.08 after yielding eight runs over two-plus innings of Friday's 13-1 loss at St. Louis. Gallardo has a 7.06 career ERA against the Cardinals, his highest career mark against any opponent he's faced more than once. "I've been feeling good," Gallardo told MLB.com. "I've been throwing the ball good. Then you have a game like this. It's very frustrating. It (stinks). Obviously, I know it keeps getting old, but there's not much you can do now. You have to prepare...

We Love Ryan Braun

Heading into last night's game Ryan Braun was hitting .263/.322/.500 with four homeruns and three steals. Not exactly MVP numbers, but if your entire team is hitting like that you are probably leading the league in offense. He's been good, but he hasn't been great which is to say he hasn't been Ryan Braun. Much like the Brewers record he has been merely okay. Last...

Brewers' Gamel injures right knee

After landing awkwardly on his knee going for a foul ball in the first inning, first baseman Mat Gamel left the game in the top of the 2nd inning. Gamel looked like he was in serious pain after planting on his right knee, coming up lame. Writhing on the ground, he was examined by head athletic trainer Dan Wright. Upon talking to Wright, Gamel decided to play through any pain for...

Milwaukee Brewer’s Mat Gamel is done for 2012

Conrad will take Gamel's roster spot

With first baseman Mat Gamel now presumably out for the season with what is reported to be a torn ACL, the Brewers called up utility infielder Brooks Conrad on Thursday from Triple-A Nashville to fill the newly opened roster spot. Conrad spent the last three seasons with the Atlanta Braves, where he played in 225 games at the major league level. At first base, however, Conrad has...

Brewers have three strong options in center

MILWAUKEE -- A little less than seven months ago, Nyjer Morgan took off for first base with his arms stretched out wide as Carlos Gomez scored and the Milwaukee Brewers moved on to the NLCS. Now, Morgan seems to be losing his grip on Milwaukee's center field spot, batting just .182 with four runs scored and zero RBI. It's still mighty early to suggest Morgan won't return...

Narvesons surgery includes labrum work

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Chris Narveson underwent successful surgery on Tuesday to repair his labrum and torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder, according to a tweet from Brewers media relations director Mike Vassallo. The surgery was performed by Dr. William Raasch, the team's physician. Narveson's recovery time is expected to be around nine months, which may put his...

Gamel leaving road trip for tests on knee

The cause for concern regarding Mat Gamel's injured right knee is great enough that the Brewers are flying him back to Milwaukee for further examination. The team announced Wednesday that Gamel will return home to be examined by Brewers head physician William Raasch. Gamel injured his right knee chasing after a Nick Hundley foul pop-up in the first inning of Tuesday's loss...

Gamel leaves game with knee injury

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Mat Gamel left the game Tuesday night in San Diego after one inning with what was described as a twisted right knee. Gamel's knee appeared to buckle just before he crashed into the padded wall chasing a foul pop in the bottom of the first inning. Gamel finished that inning but felt discomfort swinging a bat in the on-deck circle before the second inning...

Suppan Sinks Brewers in Padres 5-0 Victory

When we all heard the word that Jeff Suppan was making the start against the Brewers today most thought this could be a chance for the bats to come alive.  Boy were they wrong as Suppan mastered the Milwaukee lineup in route to a 2nd straight shutout of the Brewers, winning 5-0.  More worriesome than that was the news that Mat Gamel is lost for the season with a torn ACL and our...

Cancer survivor takes on 162-game challenge

MILWAUKEE This picture had to be perfect. Just like the one before it and the one before that and all of the pictures that would follow. Ben Rouse would take the pictures himself, if he weren't the subject. But without the camera in his own hands, his instructions are that of a perfectionist, of someone who plans on taking this same picture plenty more times. One hundred and...

Brewers hope to get bats going vs. Giants

The Milwaukee Brewers have had trouble scoring with the reigning NL MVP in the lineup. Now, they may have to try and produce without him. The San Francisco Giants have a hole in their lineup to fill as well. Ryan Braun's status is uncertain as Milwaukee looks to avoid a third straight shutout when former Cy Young winners Zack Greinke and Tim Lincecum match up in the opener...

Ryan Braun’s Three Homer Game, In Perspective

It was just another Monday night in San Diego. The Milwaukee Brewers were in town for the first game of a three-games series against the Padres. Lefty Randy Wolf was on the mound for the Brewers, facing young righty Joe Wieland for San Diego. It was the fourth big-league start for Wieland, still looking for his first win. He’d been rocked by the Los Angeles Dodgers in his major...

Brewers' Gamel tears ACL, out for season

Milwaukee area radio host Doug Russell has tweeted that Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel has torn his ACL, and will likely miss the rest of the season. Russell later tweeted that Brewers right fielder Corey Hart was taking pregame defense lessons at first base. This seems like terrible news for the Brewers on the surface, but is it really that bad?. Gamel was deemed the replacement...

Inside The Park Blog: On Total Bases and an Obscure Character of Lore by Bradford Doolittle

As you've no doubt seen by now, the Brewers' Ryan Braun had three homers and a triple last night at Petco Park, piling up 15 total bases in the game. His triple was a gapper to right-center that wasn't especially close to going out of the park. In his first at-bat, he flew out to medium center field on a well-struck ball. It was a career night for the reigning MVP. His...
