Pirates (25-25) at Brewers (23-28) 8:10 PM EST–Miller Park, Milwaukee Here is the Gameday TV: ROOT Sports Dun dun dun. Time for the Brewers and dreaded Miller Park, where the Pirates are an absurd 4-38 in their last 42 games. That is unfathomably awful. You know that, I know that, everybody that follows either of these teams knows that. It has to stop eventually, right? About the Brewers: This is not the same Brewers team that the Pirates are used to seeing. They’re under .500 and have been kind of a mess all year. The upstart Pirates SHOULD be able to handle them, especially since they won’t see Milwaukee’s two top starters this weekend. But…it’s Miller Park, and the Brewers might be starting to figure things out. They’re coming off a four game sweep on the road at Los Angeles. On the bright side for the Pirates, the last game of that series took place late last night, meaning the Brewers didn’t get home until about 6AM local time today. Ouch. Tonight’s starters… Kevin Corr...

Onetime batboy now a starter for Brewers

MILWAUKEE Cody Ransom doesn't remember much from the experience, but the shortstop's career with the Milwaukee Brewers actually started much, much earlier than that of any active player on Milwaukee's roster. As a grade school kid growing up in Chandler, Ariz., Ransom lived only a few miles from the Brewers' spring training facility. And since Ransom's family...

Charlie Morton goes on the DL

The Pirates placed Charlie Morton on the 15-day DL today (retroactive to the 30th) with “shoulder inflammation.” Juan Cruz will rejoin the team (from the restricted list) to take Morton’s roster spot, meaning lefty Doug Slaten gets to stick around for now. As I suspected in my post the other day comparing Morton and Kevin Correia, this may be a bit of a fudged injury by the...

Lucroy will put in the work to bounce back

MILWAUKEE With a cast covering the majority of his throwing hand, catcher Jonathan Lucroy told reporters on Friday that the surgery he underwent on his broken right hand on Friday was a successful one. And despite the fact that he'll likely miss around six weeks of action with the injury, the Brewers catcher made it clear he won't be taking any time off while recovering...

Why no TV tonight?

As many have pointed out, the Pirates-Brewers game is not on TV tonight in Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, or anywhere else.  I’ve tried to explain this a few times, but a bunch of people keep asking so I figured I’d just post this here so you can direct your rage to the appropriate parties (in this case, FOX and the Brewers). On Saturdays, FOX has exclusive rights to MLB programming...

Braun sits due to Achilles tightness

Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun has been playing since the early days of the season with a tight right Achilles tendon, which flares up on occasion. One of those occasions was Thursday night, when Braun was withheld from the lineup for the series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers, a game Milwaukee won 6-2. Manager Ron Roenicke said Braun began feeling tightness in...

Brewers try to get back on track vs. Pirates

By SANTOSH VENKATARAMAN, STATS Senior WriterMaybe the Pittsburgh Pirates' fortunes at Miller Park are taking a turn for the better. They are in position for a rare series victory in Milwaukee, with Ryan Braun's status in doubt. The Pirates can capture a road set against the Brewers for the second time in the last six seasons Saturday night, and it's not clear if Braun...

Morgan ends record RBI drought with solo homer

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan hit a solo home run in the first inning of Friday night's game against Pittsburgh, snapping his major league record of 138 straight plate appearances without an RBI to start the season. The previous record was 125, by outfielder Herb Adams of the Chicago White Sox in 1950. Morgan hit a pitch from Pirates starter Kevin Correia over the...

Braun back for Brewers, Achilles issue lingers

MILWAUKEE (AP) Ryan Braun is back in the lineup for the Milwaukee Brewers, but lingering tightness in his right Achilles tendon is still an issue. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke says Braun's status changes daily, "so it's hard knowing where we are with it." Roenicke says the problem won't keep him out of the lineup for an extended period of time but can limit...

Brewers 5, Pirates 1

Brooks Conrad ended his 0-for-27 slump to start the season, hitting a homer and driving in three runs to lead the injury-depleted Milwaukee Brewers past the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1 Saturday night. Shawn Marcum (4-3) pitched seven strong innings for Milwaukee, giving up five hits while striking out eight without a walk. Pirates starter Erik Bedard (3-6) lasted just 3 2-3 innings...

Pictures from the Reds-Pirates Memorial Day game

Here are several pictures from the game the RHM clan attended on Memorial Day in Pittsburgh at PNC Park. The Cincinnati Reds started their series against the Pittsburgh Pirates and lost 4-1 thanks to a bad outing from Bronson Arroyo and a no-show by the offense. <a href='

GIFcap: Brooks Conrad checked into wall by umpire, Michael Saunders catches ball with face

I know the umpire was just trying to get into position, but in the GIF, it certainly looks like he’s purposely trying to check Brooks Conrad into oblivion. If the goal for the defense on a fly ball was to let the ball hit you directly in the face, Michael Saunders wins
