Found May 19, 2013 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
It was there for the taking. The Milwaukee Brewers could have ended a disappointing road trip on a high note by winning the series in St. Louis with a victory Sunday afternoon. Down 4-2 in the seventh inning, the Brewers set themselves up perfectly for a much-needed big inning by loading the bases with nobody out for the National League's leading hitter with Ryan Braun to follow. They were going to at least tie the game, right? Not the way things are currently going. Jean Segura popped out to first base and Braun hit into a double play, ending the inning with no damage. The Brewers wouldn't score again and fell 4-2 to the Cardinals, ending the road trip at 2-8. "We had the guys in the right place and the people in the right situations to drive them in and more than one opportunity," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "(It was the) same thing.They came through with big hits and we didn't. It's the same thing. They understand how to drive in runs." ...

Brewers' Hart eyes June return

MILWAUKEE -- Corey Hart had a big smile on his face as he took the field Monday afternoon. The recovery from offseason knee surgery has probably dragged on longer than he anticipated, but he's finally starting to see an end in sight. Hart ran outside and took batting practice on the field for the first time prior to Monday's game against the Dodgers, but a rehab assignment...

Brewers 'dig deep' late, secure much-needed victory

The top of the 10th inning was one out away from adding on to the mountain of frustration the Milwaukee Brewers have accumulated on their current road trip. After back-to-back singles gave the Brewers runners at the corners with nobody out, a groundout to the drawn-in infield and an out at the plate sandwiched around a walk had Milwaukee on the verge of blowing a golden opportunity...

Brewers, Gallardo look to build off positives despite loss

MILWAUKEE -- Yovani Gallardo didn't pitch a bad game Monday night, but he did make three mistakes. But Gallardo had to be perfect in order to beat Clayton Kershaw, and he wasn't. The Dodgers left-hander continued his dominance by tossing a complete game, three-hitter in Los Angeles' 3-1 win over Milwaukee. It was a story line almost identical to the one written after...

Milwaukee's Aramis Ramirez hits the Cardinals as well as anyone

ST. LOUIS If there's a secret, Aramis Ramirez isn't sharing. "I don't know," the Milwaukee Brewers' third baseman said after he went 3-for-5 against the Cardinals on Saturday. "See the ball. Hit the ball. I guess," Ramirez offered with a shrug. Easier said than done, in most cases. But not for Ramirez, who sees and hits balls thrown by Cardinals...

Brewed for Her: Outrage-Worthy?

(Image: John & Cait…Plus Nine) This Saturday, the Brewers will host Brewed for Her, a promotional event designed to appeal to casual female fans.  In past years, a similar promotion called Brewers All-Access for Women gave attendees a backstage tour of Miller Park, including the press box, Uecker's booth, and the home clubhouse.  There was also the promise of breakout...

Rank Relief: So bad that John Axford got a win

Jeff Bianchi delivers a single up the middle to give the Brewers the lead John Axford was an early season source of rank relief, but since he was moved to middle relief he has mostly stayed off the radar.  Fortunately for him, he actually pitched well today and backed into a win.  Joe Kelly was the loser today. In the bullpen after losing the fifth starter spot to Shelby Miller...

Lohse faces former team for third time this season

The St. Louis Cardinals routinely pound on the Milwaukee Brewers' pitchers, and Yadier Molina is one of the main culprits. Kyle Lohse now has first-hand experience. Molina looks to give his former teammate another rough time on the mound and help the NL-leading Cardinals take this three-game series with the Brewers on Sunday. St. Louis (27-15) has won 11 of the past 15 meetings...

Lohse's struggles continue in loss

Kyle Lohse had another frustrating experience against his ex-teammates. The rest of the Milwaukee Brewers wanted to forget a 2-8 trip full of wasted opportunities and lessons learned. ''Certainly, it seems like we've been on the road for a month,'' said Ryan Braun, who grounded into a double play with the bases loaded to end the seventh inning of a 4-2 loss to...

Brewers 6, Cardinals 4(10)

Jeff Bianchi drove in two runs with a 10th-inning single up the middle, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 on Saturday night. Joe Kelly (0-2) allowed runs for the first time in five appearances and took the loss. He allowed two hits and a walk in one inning for the Cardinals, who fell to 0-3 in extra-inning games. John Axford (1-3) gave up one hit and two...

Kershaw throws complete game in win over Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw scattered three singles in his second complete game of the year and Matt Kemp hit his first home run since April 24, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night. Ryan Braun managed a pair of singles and Yuniesky Betancourt also singled for the only hits off Kershaw (5-2). The lefty struck out five...

Rodgers, Braun add second restaurant location

Star power. Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun have plenty of that to offer, so it comes with very little surprise that their restaurant, 8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill, is growing in Wisconsin, thanks in part to the high-profile status of its two investors. The restaurant is doing so well that 8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill is getting a second location in the Milwaukee area. After the success...
