Game 100: Brewers 6 Diamondbacks 4

The Brewers capped their series against the Diamondbacks with a victory to clinch the four game set (three victories against one loss). Arizona chipped away at Milwaukee’s lead, but the bullpen held on to win. Worst Play / Best Play: Prior to the game, I was one of many Brewers fans disparaging the Classic Supreme getaway day batting order. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy deserved a day...

Game 82 Recap: Brewers 1 Nationals 0

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Junior Guerra pitched another gem. Top Play (WPA): There was only one run scored in this game, so naturally, it was the top play. The run happened in the fifth inning with nobody out. Martin Maldonado who was catching for Jonathan Lucroy in this game was leading off the inning.

Maldonado’s Future with the Brewers

Martin Maldonado made his debut in Milwaukee in 2011 and has been the Brewers’ backup catcher since broke into the big leagues. He hasn’t started more than 66 games in a season; however, since Jonathan Lucroy blossomed into one of the game’s best catchers during his tenure, it’s understandable that Maldonado has had a difficult time earning playing time. To be fair, though...

Brewers catcher Maldonado pitches in during loss to Cardinals

Putting a position player in to pitch is usually a last resort move for a manager, but desperate times call for desperate managers. The Milwaukee Brewers got what they couldn't afford Wednesday afternoon -- a short outing from starting pitcher Matt Garza.

Brewers Backup Catcher Martin Maldonado Hits Cover Off Of Baseball (GIF)

It’d be easy to assume that if a baseball was hit so hard its cover tore off, it was probably headed for home run territory. In Friday night’s game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Pittsburgh Pirates, however, Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado tore the cover off a baseball with what appeared to be a pretty routine swing that resulted in a ground ball toward third base...

Brewers' Maldonado literally knocks cover off baseball

The expression "hitting the cover off the baseball" is often tossed around, but Milwaukee Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado actually did just that Friday night, on a weak grounder to third base nonetheless. With one out in the sixth inning and Mark Reynolds on second base, Charlie Morton got Maldonado to hit one on the ground to third baseman Pedro Alvarez. It was clear something...

WATCH: Brewers C literally hits cover off the ball

Announcers like to say that guys “hit the cover off the ball” all the time, but how often is that literally what happened? Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado did just that against Charlie Morton and the Pirates. While he didn’t exactly hit it hard — he pounded it into the ground — the ball fell apart as it reached poor Pedro Alvarez, who had to try to throw a ball...
