There were plenty of positives to take away from that, even if it wasn't even necessarily a great day at a plate for the team as a whole. Between Norichika Aoki's on-base and bunting ability and George Kottaras' small-sample magic, the Brewers' bench looks like less of a liability than originally thought, and Mat Gamel has done nothing to contest the idea that he should be in the big leagues. -- Even if the bullpen couldn't hold the lead, Yovani Gallardo put the Bre...

Greinke continues to thrive in Miller Park

MILWAUKEE Zack Greinke is by no means perfect. The former Cy Young winner has had his share of ups and downs since coming to Milwaukee before the 2011 season, including a miserable first road start this year in Chicago that saw him give up eight earned runs and nine hits in 3 23innings. But that was on the road. At home in Milwaukee, Greinke has been about as perfect as it gets...

Braun will need the protection Kemp is getting

MILWAUKEE Last season, there was little arguing whether Milwaukee's Ryan Braun or Los Angeles' Matt Kemp deserved NL MVP consideration. Kemp led the NL in home runs (39) and RBI (126) and added 40 stolen bases, while Braun finished just short of him in all three categories and led the league in slugging percentage and OPS. But with the direction Braun's Brewers were...

Brewers try for first ever sweep of Dodgers

Nyjer Morgan usually has been as loquacious off the field as much as a solid contributor on it since joining the Milwaukee Brewers last year. While "T-Plush" has been silent thus far due to a slow start, he has the chance to build off a winning play Thursday afternoon when the Brewers try to complete a three-game home sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Morgan was a vital...

Greinke looks for bounce back start at home

The NL-leading Los Angeles Dodgers found themselves on the verge of yet another victory before the Milwaukee Brewers rallied to take the opener of this three-game set. Los Angeles could be in for further disappointment with Milwaukee's Zack Greinke scheduled to take the mound Wednesday night at Miller Park. The Dodgers (9-2), who entered Tuesday winners of six in a row, saw...

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Pinch-hitter George Kottaras' two-run double with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-4 victory over Los Angeles on Tuesday night, snapping the Dodgers's six-game winning streak.

OTF: Morning Box Scores for 4/19/12

After a small day on Tuesday due to bad weather, yesterday was guaranteed to be a busy day and with 4 games overall in the Brewers Minor League system you can bet it was a busy day.  However, it was a blast being able to have games on the radio from 11 to nearly 11 thanks to an early game from Nashville and a double-header from Huntsville.  Oh, and Wisconsin and Brevard County...

It’s early, but with the weather continuing to be good to great, and optimism still abounding, ticket sales in MLB are already looking good. Both the Rangers (last Weds) and the Brewers (on Monday) surpassed the 2 million tickets sold mark. It was the fastest that either club had done so.

Brewers backup backstop can hit, too

MILWAUKEE With just two outs remaining in Tuesday nights game and the Brewers down one run with runners on first and second, manager Ron Roenicke knew he had to gamble. The Brewers were already one man down on the night, with shortstop Alex Gonzalez still on paternity leave. If Roenicke made a move, hed have to shuffle up the infield. So he made the same roll of the dice that...
