MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers All-Star shortstop Jean Segura is out of the lineup Wednesday due to an illness. Segura came to the ballpark not feeling well, and Brewers manager Ron Roenicke elected to give him the day off. Roenicke planned on giving the 23-year-old a day off during the Chicago series this weekend, but the illness bumped things up. "I thought later on made more sense with the off day tomorrow and then another off day (Monday)," Roenicke said. "But he came in and was not looking too good today." Though he hit just .252 in August, Segura is still second in the National League in hits with 165 and hasn't seen his batting average dip below .300 since Opening Day. Segura has just one home run since the All-Star break, but leads the National League in stolen bases at 39. Wednesday will mark just the eighth time this season Segura has not started at shortstop for the Brewers. Utility infielder Jeff Bianchi will make his sixth start of the season at shortstop in place of Segura. Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter

MILWAUKEE -- It's a trade that will be talked about in Milwaukee for years to come. Unfortunately for the Los Angeles Angels, they will hear about each time Jean Segura's name is thrown around.

Brewers jump on Liriano to avoid second straight sweep

MILWAUKEE -- With a couple of regulars out of the lineup, the Milwaukee Brewers makeshift lineup Wednesday night seemed destined to fall victim to Pittsburgh's red-hot lefty Francisco Liriano. But as the funny game of baseball would have it, the Brewers pounced on Liriano for seven runs in three innings and rolled to a 9-3 victory, snapping a five-game losing streak and preventing...

Ex-Tide Pitcher Up To Majors

Former Alabama pitcher Jimmy Nelson’s dream of making the Major League Baseball roster came true on Monday, when the Milwaukee Brewers called up the 24-year old.

The Number '21' Means More to Pittsburgh than We Thought

The season the Milwaukee Brewers are having is tough on the fans.  Remember, though, it was ‘only’ back in 2005 that the Brewers snapped a nasty streak of 12 consecutive losing seasons with an 81-81 record.  That non-winning, break-even season would be all Brewers fans could hang their hats on until finally the 2007 club finished 83-79.  Since those streaks were broken, the...

As Brewers Fans, We’re Pulling for the Pirates, Right? (They’ve Brought Us So Much Joy)

(Image: Benny Sieu/USA TODAY Sports) By defeating the Brewers on Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Pirates guaranteed their first non-losing season in more than two decades.  If they end up winning tonight’s game (Brewers are up 7-2 at the start of the fourth inning as I post this), they will officially be a winning team for the first time in a generation.  As a Brewers fan, I couldn’t...

Brewers' bats trump Pittsburgh's ace, 9-3

Baseball is a difficult game to figure out at times. By all appearances the Milwaukee Brewers were overmatched when they took the field Wednesday night. They had lost five in a row were fielding yet another watered-down lineup and the first-place Pittsburgh Pirates had ace Francisco Liriano on the mound. Defying those odds the Brewers avoided a winless home stand by scoring five...

Brewers-Cubs Preview

Thanks in part to their big advantage in head-to-head matchups, the Milwaukee Brewers hold a slight edge over the Chicago Cubs in the fight to stay out of the NL Central cellar. The Brewers should have a good chance to add to that success with Kyle Lohse on the mound. Lohse looks to lead Milwaukee to its ninth victory in 13 games in the season series Friday at Wrigley Field. After...
