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 of a three-game set Friday night in San Francisco. Milwaukee (11-14) dropped the last two games of its three-game series with San Diego, falling 2-0 on Tuesday and 5-0 on Wednesday, and Braun left the finale with a right Achilles injury he suffered sliding into second base. The only time in franchise history the Brewers have been shut out in three straight games was May 3-6, 1972, and it's unclear if Braun will be in the lineup Friday as they look to prevent that from happening again. "It's just a little sore," Braun said. "We'll see how it feels." San Francisco is dealing...

Braun out of lineup for Friday night

Milwaukee Brewers star left fielder Ryan Braun will not be in the lineup for Friday night's game in San Francisco. Braun hurt his right Achilles on a slide during Tuesday's game against the Padres. The next game, Braun left with tightness in the muscle, but the injury was not expected to be that serious. Braun had just started to heat up after overcoming a slow start and...

Milwaukee Brewer’s Mat Gamel is done for 2012

After leaving Tuesday night’s game against San Diego, the worst was feared for Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel. Gamel banged his right knee on the low wall at Petco Park chasing down a Nick Hundley foul ball in the first inning. Please click the link below to read the rest of this story.

Gomez leaves game with apparent leg injury

Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez left Milwaukee's game Friday night in San Francisco in the bottom of the fourth inning with an apparent leg injury. He was replaced by Norichika Aoki, who moved to left, while Nyjer Morgan shifted to center field. The cause of Gomez's injury is unknown, but he appeared to grab for the hamstring on his left leg while running to second base...

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...

Brewers release once-promising Braddock

The after effects of first baseman Mat Gamel's season-ending injury continued to sweep through the organization Friday, as reliever Zach Braddock was released to make room for Brooks Conrad, the team's latest call-up. Gamel's injury prompted the Brewers to call up Conrad, who was not on the 40-man roster. And in order to fit Conrad, without putting Gamel on the 60-day...

Gomez leaves game with sore hamstring

It was the bottom of the fourth inning in a week that had already been a rough one because of a bevy of injuries when Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez sprinted around first base in San Francisco and felt his hamstring tighten up on his left leg. Gomez left Milwaukee's game Friday night in San Francisco and was replaced by Norichika Aoki, who moved to left, while Nyjer Morgan...

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...

Brewers face familiar face in rubber game

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...

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...

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...

Brewers send Giants to 4th straight loss

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Brewers figured they should have scored more runs against a wild Tim Lincecum. Milwaukee wound up with just enough when it mattered -- and that marked quite an improvement from two shutout losses at San Diego. Aramis Ramirez broke out of his slump with a go-ahead, two-run single in the seventh inning and the Brewers held on to beat the San Francisco Giants...
