JONATHAN LUCROY NEWS

Lucroy Fortifies his Patience at the Plate in 2014 ☆

Before the season, it would have taken a lot of Leinenkugel’s for even Bernie Brewer to predict that the team would have baseball’s best record. After this hot start, you would certainly be justified in praising nearly any player on the roster. However, one guy that stands out in particular is catcher Jonathan Lucroy. After a disappointing Spring Training, the 27-year-old Floridian...

Brewers' 9-game winning streak snapped by rival Cardinals

MILWAUKEE -- The top of the sixth inning looked like one of those frames the Milwaukee Brewers have had a few times on their nine-game winning streak. A couple of clutch defensive plays gave Matt Garza and the Brewers a way out of an inning that could have easily turned ugly, but this time one swing of the bat prevented the momentum-shifting sequence from going their way. Jon Jay...

Lynn, Cardinals snap Brewers' nine-game win streak

MILWAUKEE -- Lance Lynn brought the Brewers' fast start to a halt.

Lynn (3-0) frustrated the Brewers all night. He left Carlos Gomez twisting...

Milwaukee Brewers Looking Like a Contender

Overreacting is fun. Overanalyzing is also fun. With that said, the baseball season is ridiculously long, but the Milwaukee Brewers are looking like an early contender in the National League.  Fresh off a series sweep against the Pittsburg Pirates, the Brew Crew have won 9 games in a row and currently hold a 10-2 record. Perhaps the most impressive part of their hot start is that...

Cards hope bats continuing picking up potency during trip to Milwaukee

Just one win shy of their longest winning streak in nearly 11 years, the Milwaukee Brewers continue to rely on strong pitching as they add to their best start since 1987. Whether they can keep rolling against the St. Louis Cardinals -- who have dominated them in recent years -- remains to be seen. Milwaukee seeks a 10th straight victory Monday night as it hosts St. Louis. The Brewers...

Brewers' win streak hits eight after beating Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers keep finding ways to win games. Sometimes, remarkable ways. Escaping a huge jam in the top of the eighth with a one-of-a-kind double play, the Brewers went ahead on Jonathan Lucroy's RBI single in the bottom of the inning Saturday night to pull out a 3-2 nail-biter over Pittsburgh and claim their eighth consecutive victory before a sellout crowd of 42...

'Weird play' extends Milwaukee's eight-game winning streak

MILWAUKEE -- It's unclear as to how many 2-6-1 double plays have ever been turned before, but all that matters to the Milwaukee Brewers is that they turned one in a huge spot Saturday night to help them to their eighth straight victory. With the game tied at 2 in the top of the eighth and runners at the corners, Andrew McCutchen hit a foul pop-up that was caught by Jonathan Lucroy...
