MIL - Zack Greinke: 6 IP, 2 R, 8 H, 2 BB, 9 K, 1 HR (115 pitches, 71 strikes)HOU - Lucas Harrell: 5 IP, 5 R, 5 H, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 HR (86 pitches, 53 strikes)
Ryan Braun: 3-4, 2B, HRJonathan Lucroy: 2-3, BB
Carlos Lee: 3-5Jed Lowrie: 2-5, HR
Notes: - Zack Greinke didn't have anything near his best stuff, but was still able to turn in a fine start. Unsurprisingly, his strikeout and walk rates were excellent, but he was knocked around for eight hits without much damage to show for it. A lot of you may remember this pattern from last year, when there was a lot of grousing over the huge disparity between his ERA and FIP. However, one thing apparently has changed from last year: Greinke has done an excellent job of wiggling out of jams.
- Three of the Brewers' runs tonight can loosely be attributed to the Astros' outfield defense. In the first and fourth innings, noted non-speedsters Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez hit fly balls/li...

MILWAUKEE Brewers manager Ron Roenicke knew there probably wasn't any use in having this meeting. He had talked with setup man Francisco Rodriguez enough times both in Milwaukee and in their years together with the Angels to know that he should expect the same answer to the usual question he asks all of his relievers. But as he does every day, he met with Rodriguez on Tuesday...
MILWAUKEE Last April -- before he was an MVP, before a positive drug test had ruled the news and before a certain big cleanup hitter packed up and left for Motown -- Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun was busy having one of the best months of his career at the plate.
Through 17 games the same amount of games the team has already played in 2012 Braun was batting an incredible .373...
Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson will have surgery on the torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder and miss the rest of the season, he said Tuesday.
''I'll be ready for next year,'' he said before the team's game with the Houston Astros. ''It's six to nine months.''
He made the decision to have surgery after receiving a...
Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson didn't expect Los Angeles specialist Lewis Yocum to disagree with the first diagnosis that his torn rotator cuff would require surgery. But one can always hope. Instead, Yocum agreed with Brewers team physician William Raasch, and Narveson will undergo season-ending left shoulder surgery, followed by an arduous six- to-month rehab...
Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is the first to admit that he almost assumes a win when John Axford takes over in the ninth inning with a lead. "I think we do (take it for granted) because he's been doing it a year straight," Roenicke said. "We realize that the ninth inning is not as easy for other clubs." When Axford saved the Brewers' 9-6...
MILWAUKEE Milwaukee Brewers reliever Kameron Loe knew he could always count on hearing his grandfather's voice at his baseball games. From little league through his college days as a pitcher at Cal State-Northridge, Loe's grandfather Howard Pound would always be there, always delivering his typical cheer from within the crowd.
"Hubba, hubba!" Pound would yell...
Doug Melvin and the Milwaukee Brewers orchestrated one of the more controversial trades last winter, sending stud prospect Brett Lawrie to Toronto in return for right-hander Shaun Marcum.
Lots of people spent the off-season lamenting the move, especially since Lawrie exploded onto the big league scene last season with a .293/.373/.580 line in his first 43 games and Marcum imploded...
It's been a few days off here in our On the Farm reporting and I apologize for that, but let's get into the heat of things as they stand right now and not dwell on something that can't be undone. It was a banner day, but not in the good sense, as all four Minor League teams in the Brewers organization went down to defeat yesterday.Brevard County put up ace Jed Bradley...
Monday wasn't exactly a banner day for the Brewers farm system and yesterday they actually found a way to top Monday for pure suckage as they went 0-4 once again, but did so in a way I've never seen before.In fact, we'll lead-off with the game that led me to just shake my head and that came from Brevard County. The Manatees took on Clearwater and it was an amazing pitchers...
I had a pretty successful weekend in daily fantasy baseball over at Daily Joust. I won a few head-to-head battles and have realized that this is my preferred way to play.
The giant tournaments are fun in their way, and the freeroll tourney is a no-brainer to participate in…because it’s free, but the head-to-head provide a better probability of winning. You also have only one...
