After career-worst start, Brewers' Garza dominant in win over Mets

MILWAUKEE -- Matt Garza entered his start in Washington last Saturday on a roll, which made his 42-pitch outing in which he recorded just one out and allowed five earned runs even stranger than it already was. The right-hander made sure it was just a blip on the radar by bouncing back with a fantastic performance Thursday. Garza allowed just two hits and one run over eight innings...

The Future of Olt

Yesterday, after nearly four months of a disappointing season, Mike Olt was sent down to Triple A Iowa to make room for Tsuyoshi Wada. I have to admit, since hearing that the Chicago Cubs received Olt in a trade for Matt Garza from the Texas Rangers, I was pretty excited. He was a legitimate third base prospect, something the Cubs had been lacking or a long time. Granted, he had...

Nationals pound Brewers

Milwaukee Brewers starter Matt Garza was so baffled and frustrated, he walked slowly off the mound toward the dugout and barely acknowledged his manager. He held his glove out and waved it at his side. Only one out into the bottom of the first inning Saturday, the Washington Nationals had a commanding lead and had chased the opposing team’s starting pitcher from the game. Behind...

Nationals knock Garza out early

Matt Garza had never beaten the Washington Nationals in his career. And a night after stranding seven and scoring just two runs despite collecting 11 hits, Garza was exactly what the Nationals needed to break their scoring funk. The Nationals got five hits (a couple good swings and a couple of lucky bounces) to notch five runs in the first inning off Garza, knocking him out the game...

Brewers' Garza endures ugly outing

By the time the first inning was over Saturday night, the Milwaukee Brewers had already pulled their starting pitcher and were in a 5-0 hole to one of the best pitching teams in baseball. Matt Garza lasted just one out, as he allowed five runs on five hits with two walks before being pulled at 42 pitches in Milwaukee's 8-3 loss to Washington at Nationals Park. "He didn&...

Garza Implodes as Nationals Cruise Past Brewers

Matt Garza turned in a horrific effort, giving up five runs but getting only one out, as the Washington Nationals (52-43) grabbed a big lead and never looked back, rolling to an 8-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers (54-44). The Nats absolutely battered Garza (L, 6-7) in the first. Two singles and a walk loaded the bases with one out for Ryan Zimmerman, who singled up the middle...

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...

5 New Questions About the 2014 Brewers

Before the season started, I had 10 Questions About the 2014 Brewers.  It’s interesting in hindsight to see what I was concerned about at the time.  In many cases, the players I was unsure of have exceeded expectations – including Khris Davis, Aramis Ramirez, and Matt Garza.  Now that more than half of the 2014 season is ancient history, I thought it might be worth raising...

Brewers swept by Phillies in miserable finale

MILWAUKEE -- Matt Garza was on his way to letting the Milwaukee Brewers forget about their offensive woes for a day when things completely fell apart in the eighth inning. By the time the last-place Philadelphia Phillies had completed a four-game sweep of the Brewers with a 9-1 victory Thursday, it was hard to even remember Garza taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning.

Matt Garza dazzles for Brewers in shutout victory over Reds

Matt Garza's best performance in a Milwaukee Brewers uniform came in his first start for them on April 2. Until Saturday, that is. The right-hander dominated the Cincinnati Reds, tossing a complete-game, two-hit shutout to lead the Brewers to a 1-0 victory in front of 38,754 fans at Great American Ball Park. Garza (6-5) threw 111 pitches and his nine innings bested his April...

Rubber match on tap between Reds and Brewers

The Cincinnati Reds have been shut out in three of their last five games, and Jay Bruce is in the deepest hitless slump of his career. He used to be able to count on some success against Milwaukee's Yovani Gallardo, but that's no longer the case. With the Brewers uncertain about Ryan Braun's status, Gallardo is hoping some extra rest helps him recover from a poor outing...

Milwaukee Brewers back to winning ways today

The Milwaukee Brewers ended a little slump today by shutting out the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 at Great American Ballpark. The win was much needed, as the four game losing skid the Brewers had been on the last few days had allowed the St. Louis Cardinals to chip away a little more at Milwaukee’s NL Central lead. But now, with a Cardinals loss and Brewers win, there’s a little more...

Brewers win fourth straight, lose Gomez and Segura to minor injuries

The hottest team in baseball got another win on Saturday, but it didn’t come without a price.

Samardzija a great trade chip, but can he bring twice as much as Garza?

After seeing Cubs ace Jeff Samardzija's frustration boil over to the point where he snapped a bat in half over his knee in his latest good-start, bad-result performance, the thought that immediately jumps to mind is this: get this poor fellow out of Chicago. However, it isn't as simple as it seems. While Samardzija could substantially help any team with the possible exception...
