Last night's Milwaukee Brewers/Pittsburgh Pirates affair saw some player/umpire violence that ended up being the ump bumping the player.

Milwaukee's Brooks Conrad was attempting to catch a foul ball hit by Pirates pitcher Kevin Correia but as he attempts to make a play on the ball, umpire Gerry Davis collides with him and send him to the ground:

Braun, Ramirez out for series finale

MILWAUKEE For 18 consecutive games, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has put together a starting lineup that was different than the game before. But on Sunday morning, picking that starting lineup took longer than it has all season. "It took some discussion," Roenicke said. That's because for the first time this season the Brewers will be without both Ryan Braun and...

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...

Everything clicks for Brewers in L.A. sweep

As quietly as possible, in four games, the Milwaukee Brewers swept major league baseball's best team. As quietly as possible, the Brewers seemed to fix every problem that had sent them on a slide to the bottom of the National League to start 2012. The dominant pitching of 2011 was back, including an impressive debut win from a lightly-regarded prospect in Michael Fiers. And...

Braun back for Brewers, Achilles issue lingers

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 his ability...

Conrad breaks out of slump in a big way

MILWAUKEE For 16 straight games and 27 straight at-bats, Brooks Conrad looked up at the scoreboard and saw a zero next to his average. He had been called up and sent back down and called back up again. After a difficult start and the frustration that followed his cold bat, Conrad had been given another chance, coming up 10 days after he had been sent down. Still, three games passed...

McGehee on Brewers: 'It's nice to see them'

MILWAUKEE Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has said it. Right fielder Corey Hart and other Brewers players have, too. With the turnover the club had in the offseason, the clubhouse hasn't quite been the lively, boisterous place it was in 2011. But on Friday, part of that 2011 equation returned to Miller Park. The problem was it was wearing the other team's uniform...

Brewers open long homestand against Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers return to Miller Park riding their longest winning streak of the season. Given the Brewers' history at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates, there's a good chance that run will continue. Milwaukee goes for a fifth straight victory Friday night when these NL Central rivals begin their season series. Back from a 5-2 trip, the Brewers (23-28) open a nine...

Pirates beat Brewers; Braun hurt again

So much for all that momentum the Milwaukee Brewers brought back from their recent road trip. The Pittsburgh Pirates scored six runs off Randy Wolf in the third inning, then went on to pound the Brewers 8-2 on Friday night. And Ryan Braun left the game after the seventh inning with another injury worry, aggravating the lingering tightness in his right Achilles tendon and straining...

Stakes even higher for trades this year

The Brewers were more than willing to trade two top prospects for left-hander CC Sabathia in July 2008, and not simply because they were getting one of the best pitchers in the game. No, the Brewers also knew that they could possibly replace the youngsters -- first baseman Matt LaPorta and outfielder Michael Brantley -- with the two high draft picks they would collect if Sabathia...

New MLB landscape alters D-backs' outlook

The Brewers were more than willing to trade two top prospects for left-hander CC Sabathia in July 2008, and not simply because they were getting one of the best pitchers in the game. No, the Brewers also knew that they could possibly replace the youngsters first baseman Matt LaPorta and outfielder Michael Brantley with the two high draft picks they would collect if Sabathia left...

Pirates 8, Brewers 2

The Pittsburgh Pirates scored six runs off Randy Wolf in the third inning, then went on to pound the Milwaukee Brewers 8-2 on Friday night. Ryan Braun left the game with a right hip strain, after sitting out Thursday night's game because of lingering tightness in his right Achilles tendon. Kevin Correia (2-5) gave up two runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings for the Pirates,...

Making a statement in Milwaukee

The Pirates were able to keep on rolling on Friday night, despite the dreaded visit to the place that has haunted them for years. The Bucs and Brewers did indeed look like very different teams from the ones we’re used to seeing when they match up, and for Pirate fans, that was a beautiful sight. The game started out like a typical Milwaukee mess, though. Jose Tabata drew a leadoff...

GAMEDAY: Pirates at Brewers

Pirates (25-25) at Brewers (23-28) 8:10 PM EST–Miller Park, Milwaukee Here is the MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT Sports Dun dun dun.
