MILWAUKEE -- Ron Roenicke has an unflappable personality. He never gets too high after a winning streak, doesn't show negative emotions when things aren't going well. It's a very desirable trait in a manager. But just because the skipper of the Milwaukee Brewers has an even keel personality doesn't mean this season hasn't weighed on him. Sitting at 36-52, the Brewers are in last place in their division with only the stripped down and rebuilding Miami Marlins worse than them in the National League. Hit hard by injuries at key positions and by inconsistent play, Roenicke's job as manager has been a difficult one this season. With Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez -- Milwaukee's No. 3 and 4 hitters in the lineup -- spending significant time on the disabled list and No. 5 hitter Corey Hart out for the season, Roenicke and the Brewers have missed out on a significant amount of production. It's easy to fill out a lineup every day when a team has everyone he...

Carlos Gomez leaves jaws dropping after game-saving catch

MILWAUKEE -- Joey Votto sprinted out to the umpire, screaming "Check his glove, check his glove!" Like everyone else still at Miller Park, Votto was in utter disbelief at what had just happened.

Brewers 2, Reds 0

Wily Peralta didn't know when he took the mound Tuesday night that the Brewers had taken the field a record 407 straight times between complete games.

Peralta's solid outing was the Brewers'...

In the top of the ninth inning of Monday night’s Brewers-Reds game, Cincy 1st baseman Joey Votto came to the dish with his team down a run and down to their final out.

By ANDREI GRESKA FOXSportsWisconsin.com Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun responded to ESPN's latest report that he refused to answer Major League Baseball's questions in connection with Tony Bosch and Biogenesis and, as a result, will be suspended after the All-Star break with a copy and paste of his response from earlier in the year.
