San Francisco Giants
Jim Henderson recorded his first four-out save and the Milwaukee Brewers got just enough offense to knock off the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Tuesday night at AT&T Park.
In winning the Brewers improved to a major-league best 40-0 when leading after eight innings.
“Last time I tried to go more than three outs I failed” said Henderson who was referring to a game last August in Houston.
“I want to prove that I can do that and help the team any way I can. If it’s four outs five outs six outs that was a goal in the off-season to come in and do something like that. It’s going to help my future in the game.
“At some point you’re going to have to get more than three outs.”
The Brewers got onto the board first in the second when Carlos Gomez launched a one-out home run off Matt Cain into the bleachers in left – the first homer for either team in the series to that point.
They doubled that lead in the fourth when Norichika Aoki led off with a double moved to third on a groundout by...

Inspired by the art of my favorite illustrator and hero (to the extent that it's fair to call a person that…fair to that person, I mean) Craig Robinson / author of Flip Flop Fly Ball: An Infographic Baseball Adventure and his work with stadiums! Hoping the "Imitation is a Form of Flattery" thing applies to this...
And, of course, they're going to attack...
The Milwaukee Brewers optioned second baseman Scooter Gennett to Triple-A Nashville following Tuesday's 3-1 victory over San Francisco, clearing the way for right-handerMarco Estrada to come off the disabled list.
At the time Estrada went on the disabled list in June, he expected to be out for just the required 15 days. But the left hamstring strain and a back injury has delayed...
Another injury overshadowed a good performance on the field, as Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks left the game in the eighth inning of Wednesday's 6-1 victory with a strained left hamstring.
While the Brewers officially list Weeks as day-to-day, manager Ron Roenicke said a trip to the disabled list is likely. The club will wait to make a decision on Weeks until...
Milwaukee Brewers reliever John Axford had a insatiable craving for some Krispy Kreme donuts this past weekend and took to Twitter to help score some. Axford sent out the following tweet on Saturday afternoon asking if anyone at the Wisconsin state fair would be willing to trade donuts for Brewers tickets: Who is at the WI State Fair & would like to exchange a dozen Krispy Kreme...
Just when the Milwaukee Brewers were set to bring a key part of their lineup back, another injury has complicated plans.
Second baseman Rickie Weeks, who strained his left hamstring while running to first base in the eighth inning Wednesday, is returning to Milwaukee to be examined by team physician Dr. William Raasch.
Roenicke told reporters Thursday that Weeks "pulled it...
Unlike many baseball statistics, the success rate of driving runners in from third base with less than two outs is not easy to find.
It just seems like the Milwaukee Brewers have squandered countless of those chances this season, and manager Ron Roenicke confirmed as much. He's seen the numbers, but would only say Milwaukee ranks near the bottom of the league in turning runners...
Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is headed back to Milwaukee to get an MRI exam on his left hamstring and is likely going on the disabled list.
Weeks left the team before the finale of a four-game series at the San Francisco Giants on Thursday. He injured his hamstring trying to beat out an infield grounder in the eighth inning of Milwaukee's 6-1 win on Wednesday night.
Like most dedicated Brewers fans, I have continued to follow the games out of a sense of loyalty, inertia, and because summer television programming leaves a lot to be desired. The relative lack of emotional attachment is unfortunate on one hand…but on the bright side I’m sleeping better at night than I was after some of those meaningful late summer games of...
The hamstring bug bit the Milwaukee Brewers yet again on Wednesday night.
Second baseman Rickie Weeks suffered a strained left hamstring when trying to beat out a ground ball in the eighth inning of the Brewers' 6-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park an injury that forced him from the game.
Afterward Weeks' left leg was heavily wrapped in the clubhouse...
Tom Gorzelanny got hit by a line drive in the second inning on Friday making his Wednesday start be in doubt.
RR says Wed. start "definitely a question mark" for Tom Gorzelanny. Likely will have to pull up Hellweg or Nelson from Nashville. #Brewers

X-rays were negative, but the left-hander Gorzelanny was in considerable...
Norichika Aori drove in two runs, Khris Davis hit a home run and the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the San Francisco Giants 6-1 on Wednesday night.
Marco Estrada and three relievers combined to throw a three-hitter as the Brewers won their third in four games. Jeff Bianchi and Martin Maldonado also drove in runs for the Brewers.
Alfredo Figaro (2-3) pitched two innings to earn the...
A elderly, white-haired female usher used her best finger-waving skills to break up a little tussle in the stands as Giants fans tried to stake their claim to a wayward bat at AT&T Park last night. With tempers rising and about a dozen hands struggling to get the bat Carlos Gomez accidental flung into the stands, the matronly usher uses a stern brow and accusing finger to get...
Tim Lincecum had one no-hitter under his belt coming into Thursday’s series finale with the Milwaukee Brewers at AT&T Park and he wound up coming awfully close to throwing another.
The Brewers managed just one hit over eight innings against Lincecum a leadoff double in the third inning by Juan Francisco before eventually falling to the Giants 4-1.
Lincecum allowed just two...
