When Matt Garza Becomes Wario Matt Garza –

Welcome to this season’s first official Brewers Theme Music event! As you may or may not remember from last season, this is a semi-regular feature of mine where I base an instrumental (in most cases, although, not all. There was that embarrassing singing attempt out of spring training) on either a player, possibly a mascot or group of mascots, an event on or off the field, or,...

Brewers’ Matt Garza Nearly Loses It On Mound After Home Run (GIF)

The Brewers were trailing the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 when Garza surrendered a three-run, sixth-inning home run to Jon Jay, icing what ended up being a 4-0 Cardinals win. To say Garza was mad at himself over the homer would be an understatement...

Lance Lynn needs little help in halting Brewers

However he does it, Lance Lynn wins. Whether it’s his Cardinals teammates scoring seven runs a game in his first two starts to overcome his own 6.55 earned run average, or whether it’s by his own dominance, which was on display Monday night as he overpowered the Milwaukee Brewers. In seven innings, he struck out 11 and allowed just three hits in a 4-0 victory that snapped the...

Cardinals continue to be a thorn in the Brewers' side

Matt Garza Turns Into Very Angry, Crazy Man After Allowing Home Run

Things are going pretty well for the Milwaukee Brewers these days, riding a nine-game winning streak and MLB-best 10-2 record into Monday.

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. Mixing a fastball that topped 95 mph with his effective slider, the St. Louis Cardinals right-hander struck out 11 and allowed three hits over seven innings in a 4-0 victory Monday night to snap Milwaukee's nine-game winning streak. 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 Look to Keep Good Times Rolling Against Cliff Lee ☆

Milwaukee Brewers starter Matt Garza had a bizarre outing on Wednesday night in Philadelphia, giving up eight hits, four runs and walking two, but he hung in there after some miscues on his part (a poor throw to second base and a balk among them) and some at-times shoddy defense behind him to pitch six complete innings.  That’s what the Brewers need their starters to do, even...

Brewers match Yount-era team by remaining unbeaten away from home

It's been 27 years since the Milwaukee Brewers began a season with this much success on the road. After Wednesday night's 9-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, the Brewers are 5-0 away from home for the first time since 1987. It was another relatively decisive win for Milwaukee, too. Though the game was tied at 4 after seven innings, the Brewers added three runs in...

It’s Painfully Early…So Why Does It Feel So Late? ☆

With less than two percent of the major league season complete, it’s cliché but understandable for baseball fans whose teams have stumbled out of the gate to panic and tremble.  The 2011 Milwaukee Brewers’ season saw John Axford blow a save on Opening Day in heart-breaking fashion and the team lost four straight to open the year.  The Brewers then won 96 games that season...

Garza dazzles, but bats cold again for Milwaukee Brewers

It was a tumultuous spring for Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Matt Garza, who had signed a four year, $50 million contract in the offseason. He struggled mightily, and reporters were questioning his ability. Garza silenced all those questioners with an incredible Milwaukee debut, throwing a no-hitter into the seventh inning and only allowing one run, a solo shot by Chris Johnson...

One mistake leaves Garza as tough-luck loser

MILWAUKEE -- If there ever was a perfect example as to why the win-loss record of a starting pitcher can be misleading, Wednesday afternoon was it. Matt Garza was dominant for eight innings in his debut with the Brewers, but Milwaukee's offense did nothing to support him in a 1-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves at Miller Park. With Garza and Braves starter Aaron Harang both tossing...

Making his debut in front of the home fans with the Brewers, Garza was just anxious to pitch somewhere other than in Arizona. "I just had to get familiar coming out from the other side," Garza said.
