MILWAUKEE -- With talented young pitchers come growing pains.The Milwaukee Brewers know there will be plenty of outings this season in which Wily Peralta makes people take notice of his talent but that there will be plenty of other times where the young right-hander leaves them scratching their heads.
In four starts this season, the good Peralta has shown up for two outings, and the shaky version has come out in the other two. At age 23, ups and downs are going to be there. But as long as Brewers manager Ron Roenicke keeps seeing improvement, Peralta is going to learn on the fly in Milwaukee's starting rotation.
"When you think about Wily at the beginning of the year, in spring training, I thought this was going to happen," Roenicke said. "(I knew there was going to be) some not so good games. As long as we see some good ones from him, because of the upside that he has, I would like to give him every opportunity to do well.
But I don't know how far that goes a...

It took only six days, but Major League Baseball has finally determined that Brewers shortstop Jean Segura and anyone else who might want to run backward on the basepaths doesn't have the right to "steal" first base.
During Milwaukee's Friday night victory against the Cubs, Segura was on second base and Ryan Braun was on first base when Segura got caught in a...
Ouch. And again we say: Ouch.
Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse incurred a nasty pinky injury on his left hand in Monday night’s game, and he did it the last way a pitcher wants to get hurt: running the bases. Well, to be more precise, he was trying to get to first base after laying down a sacrifice bunt. Instead, Lohse’s finger got caught on Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko, who was...
Yuniesky Betancourt crushed a three-run homer to left field to give the Brewers an early lead in the top of the first, but it was the play in the stands which got the most attention. Check out the young Padres fan who laid out backwards to haul in the dinger with no regard for his safety. Very impressive work. Your browser does not support iframes.

It was a tough way for the Milwaukee Brewers to have their nine-game winning streak come to an end.
With the tying run on second base and two outs, Brewers first baseman Martin Maldonado fouled a pitch that hit off the dirt and bounced up and hit him in the shoulder. Home plate umpire Paul Emmel ruled Maldonado was out of the batters' box when the ball hit him, ending the game...
Milwaukee Brewers right-handed starting pitcher Kyle Lohse dislocated
his left pinky finger during Monday night’s contests against the San Diego
Padres. While certainly painful, the injury is to Lohse’s non-throwing hand,
and the veteran told reporters – including Tom Haudricourt of The Journal Sentinel
– that he’s hoping to make his next scheduled start.
With Ryan Braun leading the way, the Milwaukee Brewers find themselves on the verge of their longest winning streak in 10 seasons.
Victories, in contrast, haven't been easy to come by for the San Diego Padres - especially at home.
Milwaukee aims for a ninth consecutive win when it continues a three-game set against the slumping Padres on Tuesday night at Petco Park.
Earlier today, Jim Breen / @JP_Breen - head writer at the wonderful Disciples of Uecker site and a contributor at fangraphs.com - asked fans, via twitter, if they thought Yuniesky Betancourt had "fundamentally changed as a player."
This question was asked in light of Betancourt's unexpected offensive contributions as an everyday player so far this season. For those...
The Milwaukee Brewers continue to roll and aren't showing any signs of slowing down.
The slumping San Diego Padres are surely glad to see them leaving town.
Seeking a 10th consecutive win, the Brewers try to sweep the Padres for the first time in 10 seasons Wednesday night.
After winning 7-1 in Monday's series opener, Milwaukee (11-8) jumped all over San Diego starter Clayton...
Yovani Gallardo pitched into the seventh inning and the Milwaukee Brewers rode an early offensive outburst to another win, beating the San Diego Padres 6-3 Tuesday night for their ninth straight win.
Gallardo (2-1) allowed three runs and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings, with five walks and two strikeouts. Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run double in the Brewers' five-run second inning...
*Yuniesky Betancourt, Spring Training 2013 casualty, is now with the Milwaukee Brewers and is batting .279/.795 with 3 HR and 15 RBI. Instead of releasing him, Amaro should have signed him to a 5 YR/$125M contract. Don't ya think?!*Ben Revere might be a defensive whiz, but his offense negates any good he does with the glove. His OPS is .472, which ranks 186th out of 192...

Last weekend, the Brewers won two games thanks to several timely errors by the Cubs. In games started by Edwin Jackson and Scott Feldman, the Brewers took the lead on unearned runs both times. It seems like a shame for Jackson and Feldman to get tagged with losses in those cases (as much as the Cubs losing can be a “shame” anyway).
It got me thinking...
