Pirates (30-19) at Brewers (19-28) 2:10 PM–Miller Park, Milwaukee MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT The Bucs go for a series win at Miller Park this afternoon, which would obviously be significant. They’ve only got one more series left in Milwaukee this year, and that’s not until September, so they won’t be seeing this place for a while after today. Today’s starters… Wandy Rodriguez (5-2, 3.40) vs. Yovani Gallardo (3-4, 4.50)  Wandy figured out the Brewers in his last start, defeating them (and Gallardo) with a strong seven-inning outing. His last start – against the Cubs – was OK, but not great. Wandy has given the Bucs four consecutive quality starts. His last non quality start was at Miller Park, where he was rocked for seven runs. Gallardo has been decent lately but isn’t exactly pitching like an ace. His start against the Bucs in the loss to Wandy was somewhat mediocre, but he usually pitches well against the Pirates. Let’s hope the bats are still hot after yesterday’s home run fest. Bu...

Gallardo, Roenicke baffled by short start

MILWAUKEE Yovani Gallardo says he felt good, but the results speak otherwise yet again. For the right-hander and the Milwaukee Brewers, it was more of the same Sunday afternoon. Their starting pitcher couldn't go deep into the game, and the offense struggled to consistently put run-scoring threats together. Gallardo lasted just four innings, allowed four runs on five hits...

Draft Watch: Latest Mock Draft Has A New Name For Pirates

Minor League Ball put out their second mock draft yesterday and they added a new name to the mix for the Pittsburgh Pirates, High School catcher Nick Ciuffo.  The backstop from South Carolina was called possibly the best all around catcher in this draft class. Matt Garrioch, who posted the mock draft, thinks he could get to the majors faster than any other catcher in the draft class...

Brewers aim to build momentum versus Pittsburgh

No matter how poorly the Milwaukee Brewers have played this month, they continue to fare well against the Pittsburgh Pirates at home. Looking to win consecutive games for the first time in May, the Brewers hope to continue that home success against the Pirates on Saturday. Milwaukee (19-27) is 5-16 in May and has not won back-to-back contests since April 29-30 at home against Pittsburgh...

Brewers Monday: Figaro likely to start Tuesday

MILWAUKEE Milwaukee's starter for Tuesday's game against Minnesota has finally been answered sort of. Right-hander Alfredo Figaro will start against the Twins if he isn't needed out of the bullpen in Monday's game. If Wily Peralta gives the Brewers a short start Monday, or the game goes into extra innings, Milwaukee has a backup plan in place for Tuesday. But...

Brewers Saturday: Henderson to be evaluated by team doctor

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers closer Jim Henderson's hamstring injury will be evaluated Saturday afternoon by team physician Dr. William Raasch, but early signs indicate a trip to the disabled list could be likely.

Brewers' Estrada ends struggles with strong start

MILWAUKEE Marco Estrada wanted to take the ball and go back out there for the eighth inning. With the lack of depth the Brewers' starting rotation has been giving the bullpen, it's hard to blame him. For the first time since May 13, a Milwaukee starting pitcher went seven innings, as Estrada set down the first 14 batters he faced en route to a 2-1 victory over the Pirates...

First Pitch: Who Pirates Draft and Who Fans Want, Might Not Be The Same

Since taking over the draft coverage on the site this year, I have learned one thing that is pretty clear. Unless you’re picking at the top of the draft class, there is nothing close to a consensus. That is especially true with the Pittsburgh Pirates two first round picks this year. There wasn’t a consensus back in February and there certainly isn’t one now. Having Josh Bell...

Braun to miss time with right thumb injury

MILWAUKEE Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun will miss Monday's game against Minnesota with a right thumb injury and may need a couple of days off to help the recovery process. Braun injured the thumb two weeks ago and has been playing through the injury since. He's tried just about every remedy to try and alleviate the pain but hasn't found anything that works...

Draft Prospect Watch: NCAA Tournament Talk and Reese McGuire News

It’s a big Friday night in college baseball as the draft is now just 13 days away. With the Pittsburgh Pirates picking #9 and #14, they are getting some last looks in at the players in their range.

Struggling Brewers look for boost from interleague matchup
