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 the Brewers' 2-0 loss in Los Angeles on April 28. Milwaukee's starting pitcher was good, Kershaw was just better. That afternoon Kyle Lohse was the victim, Monday it was Gallardo. "Really good again," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of Kershaw. "He commands the fastball. He commands all of his pitches, and they are all plus pitches. "His fastball plays better than what the numbers are. He really buries it in to right-handers. It has a little bit of a cut on it.

Brewers Tuesday: Milwaukee could get boost soon from two lefty pitchers

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...

Lack of execution biting Brewers over and over in May

It was there for the taking. The Milwaukee Brewers could have ended a disappointing road trip on a high note by winning the series in St. Louis with a victory Sunday afternoon. Down 4-2 in the seventh inning, the Brewers set themselves up perfectly for a much-needed big inning by loading the bases with nobody out for the National League's leading hitter with Ryan Braun to follow...

Brewed for Her: Outrage-Worthy?

(Image: John & Cait…Plus Nine) This Saturday, the Brewers will host Brewed for Her, a promotional event designed to appeal to casual female fans.  In past years, a similar promotion called Brewers All-Access for Women gave attendees a backstage tour of Miller Park, including the press box, Uecker's booth, and the home clubhouse.  There was also the promise of breakout...

Lohse faces former team for third time this season

The St. Louis Cardinals routinely pound on the Milwaukee Brewers' pitchers, and Yadier Molina is one of the main culprits. Kyle Lohse now has first-hand experience. Molina looks to give his former teammate another rough time on the mound and help the NL-leading Cardinals take this three-game series with the Brewers on Sunday. St. Louis (27-15) has won 11 of the past 15 meetings...

Greinke tries to do too much in return to Miller Park

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...

Triple-A Nashville Sounds / Sacramento River Cats Scouting Videos! (And plenty of others, as well).

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...

Brewers look to crack the Clayton Kershaw code

Clayton Kershaw is tied for the majors' lowest ERA, but unfortunately also owns baseball's worst run support average. Fortunately for him, the Milwaukee Brewers have been awful against left-handers as they face Kershaw in Monday night's opener of a three-game set with the Los Angeles Dodgers out to snap a six-game road slide. Kershaw (4-2, 1.40 ERA) is tied with St. Louis...
