MILWAUKEE -- Those needing evidence as to why the Milwaukee Brewers have stuck with Wily Peralta through the young right-hander's struggles this season don't need to look any further than Friday night's performance. In one of the best outings of his career, Peralta allowed just two hits and didn't allow a run for just the second time in his career, as the Brewers opened their six-game homestand with a 2-0 win over Atlanta.

Brewers Minor Leagues are Apparently Not Well Regarded

(Image: Allison Rhoades/MiLB.com) Even as someone who follows the Brewers pretty closely, I don’t know much about the state of the minor leagues.  Other than spring training and September call ups, I only know the names of a few players in Milwaukee’s farm system (I hear this Hunter Morris guy has a lot of upside). I am aware that the Brewers supposedly depleted their...

Ryan Braun update: slugger expected to be out longer than orginally expected

In a huge blow to the fortunes of the Milwaukee Brewers and their chase towards a .500 record and the NL Central title, Ryan Braun's hand injury diagnosis has been confirmed by a second specialist and will more than likely lead to Braun needing more time to recover than originally expected.

Brewers seek eighth straight home win over Braves

Though it's been seven weeks since Tim Hudson last earned a victory, he's often been deserving of a better outcome. The 15-year veteran tries to avoid the longest winless stretch of his career as the Atlanta Braves look to halt a seven-game road losing streak to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. Hudson (4-6, 4.17 ERA) has had a rough go of late, compiling an 0-5 record...

BY ANDREI GRESKAFOXSportsWisconsin.com Looking to close out the nine-game road trip on a positive note, the Milwaukee Brewers managed to do just the opposite, giving up an eighth-inning lead before falling to Houston 7-4 in the 10th inning off a three-run walk-off from Carlos Pena. "Defensively we gave them a couple of runs early. Offensively we obviously didn't do the...
