Lucroy returns to form, hammers walk-off winner

MILWAUKEE -- Jonathan Lucroy was so consistent in the first-half of the season that a stretch of eight games in which he struggled at the plate began to raise questions as to whether the workload placed on the catcher was becoming a cause for concern. So much for that. Responding in a big way, Lucroy blasted two home runs Tuesday night, including a walk-off blast in the bottom of...

Reds allow 4 homers in 4-3 loss to Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers managed only six hits Tuesday night. Unfortunately for the Reds, four were home runs and that was enough to keep Cincinnati winless since the All-Star break.

Brewers All-Stars create good memories despite loss

MINNEAPOLIS -- Jonathan Lucroy swung his bat with the same opportunism he did in his MLB debut here four years ago. Carlos Gomez did the same thing, though his feistiness at Target Field's home plate earned him little more than laughs from the National League dugout. Aramis Ramirez was his usual savvy self, though a close-call ground ball at third base that eluded him helped...

Bitter Cardinals Fans Blame Jonathan Lucroy for Adam Wainwright’s All-Star Game Struggles

The Cardinals-Brewers feisty rivalry is quite underrated yet always prevalent, especially when both teams are competing for the division title and both teams send a heap of players to the All-Star Game. The rivalry tension was in full swing as Cardinals manager Mike Matheny tapped his own Adam Wainwright to start the game, pitching to the fan-voted starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy...

Outlook for Brewers in the Second Half

This year’s All-Star break came at an especially opportune time for the Brewers, allowing for a breather in the midst of their worst slump of the year. Starting on July 1, Milwaukee limped toward intermission on a 2-10 skid. St. Louis shaved the Brewers’ comfortable 6.5-game lead to a pulse-pounding margin of one game. With time on our hands during the break, stunned Brewers...

Brewers head into All-Star break with big series vs. Cardinals

MILWAUKEE -- When a team has lost nine of its last 10 games, it is hard to build any series up to be much bigger than the last. It wouldn't matter if it were the worst team in baseball coming to Miller Park this weekend -- the Milwaukee Brewers need some sort of positive momentum heading into the All-Star break. That said, it's hard to not build this weekend's series...

Unknown All-Stars: Charlie Blackmon

Previously on this series I extolled the virtues of Jonathan Lucroy, arguably my favorite player in the league right now. However, the fans didn’t see eye to eye with me and in a complete travesty Yadier Molina was voted the NL starting catcher. Lucroy has the highest WAR in the NL at the halfway mark but whatever that’s how fan votes go. Moving on to the NL outfield there is...
