Brewers' pitchers look primed for big things

For 26 straight innings, the Milwaukee Brewers' pitching staff hadn't allowed a single run. It was a magnificent feat for a pitching staff that struggled at times with its starters and struggled even more times this season with its bullpen. But for 26 innings, the Brewers had been practically unhittable. It took until the ninth inning of Wednesday night's game against...

Blazing Brewers chalk up seven steals

MILWAUKEE Jonathan Lucroy took off, not known for his speed, but fully aware that the Milwaukee Brewers had been dominating the Pirates already this game when it came to stealing second base. And sure enough, Lucroy's slide was in time, beating Pirates catcher Rod Barajas again. Barajas, statistically one of baseball's worst catchers when it comes to catching base-stealers...

Zack Greinke is still Brewers’ No. 2 starter

I haven’t paid much attention to baseball in the last month or so, because that’s what happens when you’re a Cubs fan. However, I have watched enough games this season to realize the Milwaukee Brewers ascension up the standings came out of nowhere. Suddenly a team that was just a notch better than the Astros and Cubs in July is in the midst of the wild-card race. Considering...

Brewers hope to sink Pirates for good

MILWAUKEE Despite standing with the same record (74-72), both back by 2.5 games in the battle for National League's second wild-card spot -- both led by NL MVP candidates in Ryan Braun and Andrew McCutchen -- the Milwaukee Brewers and Pittsburgh Pirates couldn't seem to be any more different heading into Tuesday's start of a three-game series. Twelve games under .500...

Estrada, Brewers seek continued success

James McDonald's struggles cost him a spot in the Pittsburgh Pirates rotation. Their collective issues may be costing them a trip to the postseason, and the Milwaukee Brewers are surely thrilled to take advantage of that. In replacing McDonald, the rapidly fading Pirates are scheduled to give rookie Kyle McPherson his first career start in an effort to avoid a six-game slide...

Gallardo, Brewers open critical trip in Pittsburgh

An incredible run over the last month has vaulted the Milwaukee Brewers into the thick of the NL wild-card race. The Pittsburgh Pirates are right there with them, but they've hardly resembled a playoff team lately. The surging Brewers look to continue their astonishing playoff push in Tuesday night's opener with the Pirates, who might be weary after arriving home this morning...

Paper Airplane Stalls MLB Game

Talk about a flight delay.  A game between the Mets and Brewers was delayed when a paper airplane flew on to the field.The hitter, Aramis Ramirez, stepped out of the box to allow the airplane to be taken off of the field.It's a pretty big one.  I'm glad it didn't hit anyone in the eye.Watch the clip right here:Your browser does not support iframes.

Brewers run all over Bucs

The Pirates played a very lackluster game Monday night and opened up this week’s crucial series with a very flat loss to the Brewers. A.J. Burnett wasn’t bad, but got into plenty of trouble early on. He was able to escape a jam in the first, but allowed a run in the second (and stranded the bases loaded). After that he settled down, but the Brewers pushed another run across in...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 148

It’s so easy to write that the Pirates lost to the Brewers.  It’s natural.  Second nature at this point.  It’s not surprising, it’s barely even frustrating.  It’s accepted.  Accepted by the fans for sure, and seemingly accepted by the players.  How else could you explain this drought against the Brewers? First Pitch:  7:05 PM EST Where [...]

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 147

I’m not sure what MLB was thinking yesterday.  If the game was that important it could be made up at the end.  Not only that but why was it even a night game?  Most games at Wrigley are day games, including the other three games of this series.  Why have a getaway game at night? [...]
