TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Felix Hernandez limited Milwaukee to one hit in six scoreless innings in his second-to-last outing before Seattle leaves for Japan, helping the Mariners beat the Brewers 6-1 in a split-squad game Friday. Hernandez threw 80 pitches, 50 for strikes. He struck out six and walked one. Hernandez will likely make his final spring start Wednesday before the team departs for Tokyo for two exhibition games and its season opener March 28 against Oakland. Alex Liddi hit a two-run home run, and Dustin Ackley had three doubles for Seattle. Milwaukee starter Marco Estrada allowed three runs and five hits in three innings. He struck out two and walked two. The Brewers played without any of their regular position players.

Axford backs 'Stache for cash tax break

PHOENIX Add Milwaukee Brewers closer John Axford to the list of those supporting proposed legislation to provide an annual 250 tax credit to mustachioed and bearded Americans. "I'm just trying to help bearded and mustached fellows, like myself, try to make this country a little more handsome and better-looking," Axford said Thursday. The STACHE Act (Stimulus to Allow...

Brewers' farm system remains strong

PHOENIX After the Milwaukee Brewers traded for starting pitchers Shaun Marcum and Zack Greinke in December 2010, there was a vocal minority of Brewers fans and baseball observers who suggested that general manager destroyed the team's farm system. To be fair, Melvin did pay a hefty cost, giving up four of the organization's top prospects to land Greinke and a potential...

Brewers Make 5 Non-Painful Cuts

Scott Paulus/Brewers The Brewers made the first reductions to their Spring Training roster today, cutting five players from major-league camp, according to Media Relations Director Mike Vassallo. Right-hander Taylor Jungmann, lefty Jed Bradley, and catcher Anderson De La Rosa have all been reassigned to minor-league camp, and righty Cody Scarpetta and outfielder/living legend Brock...

Braun getting ready for Opening Day

SURPRISE, Ariz. Of the Brewers' probably everyday players, Ryan Braun has the fewest at-bats (13) this season in Cactus League play. That low total is by design as Braun is working his way into defending his NL Most Valuable Player award but the numbers are way off in relation to past seasons. Braun, who hit .332 a year ago, has gotten off to a surprisingly slow start at the...

Weeks brothers facing off in Arizona

PHOENIX It's a scene that plays out hundreds of times over the course of a 162-game Major League Baseball season: a runner takes a big lead off first base, dances a little bit and once the pitcher takes notice, tries to dart back to first ahead of the throw, only to be caught between two fielders. Such a scene played out in the first inning of the Milwaukee Brewers' March...

2012 MLB Team Preview: Seattle Mariners

Seattle Mariners old-school logo. It has been a long and rough 11 years for Seattle Mariners fans, as that was last time the team gave them anything to celebrate about in October. And in 2011 the Mariners teased fans by staying in contention in the AL West until a 17-game losing streak put an end to any hopes of a surprise run in the division. The team finished last season with...

The Free Agent The Mariners Would Be Crazy Not To Sign

So far the Mariners are enjoying a successful Spring Training with a record of 9-3-1 and an average of over 6 runs a game. However, this offensive burst in Cactus League play may not be sustainable during the course of the season. As a team that was dead last in every offensive category, there are some bats that are still available on the free agent market that may be worth looking...

Narveson pitches into the 4th, Brewers win

PHOENIX (AP) -- If the Milwaukee Brewers can get anywhere near the same type of starting pitching during the regular season that they are getting this spring, a second straight NL Central title would appear to be well within reach. Left-hander Chris Narveson kept the momentum going on Thursday, pitching 3 2-3 scoreless innings in the Brewers' 6-4 victory over the San Diego...

Former Brewers form Royals' young nucleus

SURPRISE, Ariz. The Milwaukee Brewers long admired Alcides Escobar's ability at shortstop, so much so that they parted with longtime starter J.J. Hardy to make room for the young prospect at the major league level. With just two big league seasons under his belt, Escobar was rewarded with a four-year contract extension this week.Unfortunately for the Brewers, he signed that...

Fantasy Forecast: Milwaukee Brewers

Author: Andrew SwansonAs Brewers fans slowly thaw this spring from a cold and unforgiving winter, they will be pleasantly surprised to see a Milwaukee team that addressed a much needed weak spot this off-season: Starting Pitching. With the additions of Zack Greinke and Sean Marcum to a rotation already consisting Yovani Gallardo and Randy Wolf, the Brewers may now have enough pitching...

MLB 2012 Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

We’ll get into how bad he is later, but really it...
