ST. LOUIS Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Zack Greinke has taken plenty of criticism for not performing in high-pressure settings, particularly in Yankee Stadium earlier this season.
But, on the eve of thebiggest start of his career, Greinke remained unfazed.
As Greinke prepared to take the mound for Game 5 of the NL Championship Series, it's clear the pressure of the...
Nyjer Morgan, the brash outfielder for the Milwaukee Brewers in explaining how he got injured in the celebration after last week's NLDS Game 5 walk-off single against the Arizona Diamondbacks, sounded more like a California surfer dude describing the perfect ride than a ballplayer who got a pop to the nose.
"I caught a boney-five in the snot-box," Morgan said...
Randy Wolf did a hell of a job Thursday evening keeping his Milwaukee Brewers in the game, helping to tie up the series and force the National League pennant to eventually be decided at Miller Park.
The 35-year-old lefty went seven solid innings in Game 4, surrendering just two runs on seven hits with a walk and six strikeouts in his team's 4-2 victory over the St. Louis...
What do you get when you combine Corey Hart’s and Rickie Week’s last name? WART. Yes WART. Appropriate for what these two ******* ass bags have been to the Brewers’ playoff lineup. A big, festering WART. Rickie Wart is hitting a blistering (what warts do) .130 this post season with one damn RBI in the [...]
Zack Greinke apparently is done providing bulletin-board material.
In an intriguing game-within-the-game scenario in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series on Thursday night, third-base umpire Gary Darling waved off what the Cardinals initially thought was an inning-ending called strike three on the Brewers' Rickie Weeks in the seventh.
On Wednesday night, in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke pressed the wrong button. It was the button marked: "Mark Kotsay, center field."
Yadier Molina and Matt Holliday have three hits each for St. Louis. The series now heads back to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Sunday.
Kyle Lohse versus Randy Wolf might be the furthest thing from an exciting postseason pitching matchup, but these are the two men the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers will turn to for Thursday night's Game 4 at Busch Stadium.
St. Louis grabbed the lead in the series with their 4-3 victory in Game 3 on Wednesday. A huge win for them, which sets up an opportunity to take...
Now that the Milwaukee Brewers have snapped their decades-long postseason road losing streak, they have a chance to regain
the advantage in their NL championship series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
A walk and a hit batter put two men on on base for the Brewers in the top of the first, but on a high line drive to center, Mark Kotsay wandered too far off second base, and was doubled up on the play. The Cardinals bat in the bottom of the first with no score, and Rafael Furcal leads off with a single.
Update: Kotsay can’t catch Jon Jay‘s fly ball to shallow left-center...
Randy Wolf outfoxed the St. Louis Cardinals for seven innings to earn his first postseason win at age 35 and the Milwaukee Brewers got two more hits from Ryan Braun in a 4-2 victory tonight that evened the NL championship series at 2-all.
Milwaukee RHP Zack Greinke (1-0, 8.18 ERA) vs. St. Louis LHP Jaime Garcia (0-2, 7.36).
In a span of two pitches, the Cardinals went from frustration to elation in the second inning of Game 5 of their National League Championship Series with the Brewers. Brewers third baseman Jerry Hairston Jr. exprienced the highs and lows of the inning, where St. Louis scored three times.
In Friday's 7-1 loss in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series on Friday -- which gave the Cardinals a 3-2 series lead -- Yuniesky Betancourt showed both positives and negatives. The result was an all too familiar feeling for the proud members of Brewers Nation.
