Milwaukee Brewers right fielder Norichika Aoki got an infield single on what should have been a double play ball during Saturday's game against the Washington Nationals after his ground ball up the middle hit a rosin bag in the back of the pitcher's mound.
It happened in the bottom of the third inning with one out and a runner on first base. The rosin bag slowed Aoki's grounder just enough to prevent the Nationals infield from making a play on either runner.
The Nationals survived the play without giving up any runs in the inning, however, and they won the game 4-1.

MILWAUKEE After a day in which the Milwaukee Brewers latest trade hung in limbo, the team announced Sunday that backup catcher George Kottaras has officially been dealt to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for right-hander reliever Fautino De Los Santos.
Given 10 days to deal Kottaras after the team designated him for assignment Thursday, general manager Doug Melvin said he intended...
Do I know how to plan a week to not talk about the Brewers or what? After the Brewers just went 1-9 over their last ten games and traded away one of their most reliable players there is pretty much nothing I'd like to write about less than the Brewers right now. (Especially after Sunday's game. Jeesh.) Yes, I still think that 2013 is going be awesome and we'll return...
A play in the sixth inning of the Milwaukee Brewers' game against the Washington Nationals on Sunday resulted in three of the four umpires involved in separate arguments at the same time.
The Brewers led, 3-2, and had the bases loaded with one out when Norichika Aoki laid down a squeeze bunt that was fielded by Washington starter Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez made a quick, off-target...

There are still two months left in the season, but the Milwaukee Brewers aren't giving any indication that they're going to make a move up the standings.
The Houston Astros' recent bevy of moves show they're certainly looking toward 2013.

The Brewers fired bullpen coach Stan Kyles and promoted minor league pitching coordinator Lee Tunnell. Kyles had been with the team in that role since 2009. "It is important that we make every effort to try to improve our bullpen performance," Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said in a statement. "While Stan is not solely responsible, I felt that this change...
MILWAUKEE A framed picture hangs at the end of a long back hallway in the Milwaukee Brewers press box. It's a picture of ace pitcher Zack Greinke, and on the surface, it seems very much like the other posed photographs in this hallway.
It's a typical picture of Greinke, if there is such a thing -- the pitcher deeply, yet blankly, glaring at the camera. But, on a deeper...
Cody Ransom's homer capped a four-run burst in the eighth inning and the Milwaukee Brewers, after firing their bullpen coach, held off the Houston Astros 8-7 Monday night.
The Brewers dismissed Stan Kyles before the game, then watched their shaky relievers barely preserve this victory.
Milwaukee scored four times in the seventh for a 4-3 edge, but the Astros tied it in the...
