Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 154

After those losses to the Brewers late in games earlier this season last night’s victory was very fulfilling. Even more so because, like in the Grilli meltdown, the starter pitched pretty outstanding before his bullpen peed themselves. Any time something bad happens to Gallardo against the Bucs (from a professional standpoint) is alright in my book. He’ll never get it but...

Brewers playoff hopes dealt devastating blow by Pirates rally

While technically the Brewers are still alive in the race for the National League's second wild-card spot, the Pittsburgh Pirates may have ended any realistic chance Milwaukee had at the postseason Friday night.

Game 153: Pirates 4 Brewers 2

There are certain moments in life in which sports can deliver a jolt of such pure and unadulterated joy that they are capable of drowning out all of the day to day ******** of life and the world around us.

Milwaukee Brewers: October is out of reach

Missed opportunities and asinine decisions cost the Milwaukee Brewers another win last night, as they fell 3-2 to the St. Louis Cardinals in 13 innings. Kyle Lohse’s fantastic start last night went to waste. The maddening defeat knocked the Brewers back another game behind Pittsburgh in the Wild Card race to increase their gap to three and a half. While nine games still remain...

Dugout Digest – do or die for the Brewers

This is really a last gasp for the Milwaukee Brewers. After a crushing 3-2, 13 inning loss to the Cardinals on Thursday, the Brewers are six games back of St. Louis in the NL Central, and 3.5 games behind the Pirates for the NL’s second Wild Card spot. You can pretty much count out the division at this point, but Milwaukee still has a shot at the Wild Card, especially given that...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Game 153

Alright, alright! This is the biggest series of the year. I know we’ve said it a million times but when I say it you best believe I mean it. It’s very fitting that we have a late season brawl with the Poo-crew with a playoff spot at stake. Milwaukee is freeeeeeeeeeee, freeeee fallin’! Problem is they’ve absolutely dominated the Buccos this year, as per usual. 5-11. That’s...

Brewers-Pirates Preview

Yovani Gallardo hasn't pitched very well recently, but there's something about taking the mound at PNC Park that seems to bring out the best in him. Never have the Milwaukee Brewers been more desperate for that trend to continue. Overtaken by the red-hot Pirates for the NL's final playoff spot, Gallardo and the Brewers find their once-promising season hanging in the balance...

Coulter bounces back, becomes Brewers' minor-league player of year

MILWAUKEE -- There wasn't much doubt as to whether Clint Coulter would bust out offensively in the minor leagues. The offensive upside of the former first-round pick left a breakout year at the plate almost inevitable. But after an injury-riddled first full minor-league season left Coulter's numbers underwhelming in 2013, the Milwaukee Brewers were pleased to see one of their...

What is Yovani Gallardo?

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo struck out over 200 opposing hitters each year from 2009-2012.  The only other pitchers to accomplish the same feat in that time frame were Justin Verlander and Felix Hernandez.  You’ve probably heard of those two, and each has a Cy Young award hanging in his locker.  But Gallardo was never mentioned in the same breath as those...

Bad breaks costly for Brewers in narrow loss

With Adam Wainwright and Mike Fiers locked in a pitcher's duel, whichever team blinked first Wednesday night was likely going to fall victim to a tough defeat. Unfortunately for the Milwaukee Brewers, the critical mistake -- or maybe it was just a bad break – was made by them. Carlos Gomez had the Busch Stadium turf give out from under him while trying to field a single...

Brewers will exercise their part of $14M option on Aramis Ramirez

The Brewers intend to pick up the $14 million option on Aramis Ramirez's contract, league sources said. Milwaukee has the option of buying out the veteran third baseman Ramirez for $4 million but is pleased with his performance and prefers him back with the team on a $14 million, one-year commitment. However, since Ramirez's option is a mutual option, the player could still...

Gerardo Parra gives ball to kid seated next to guy who interfered with catch (video)

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra had every right to be peeved with at least one St. Louis Cardinals fan during Tuesday’s game at Busch Stadium. Instead, he took the high road, demonstrated a lot of class and even went above and beyond to make nice. While chasing down a Chris Carpenter pop-up that drifted into […] The post Gerardo Parra gives ball to kid seated next...

Brewers take down Cardinals 3-2 in 12 innings

The Brewers battled back from a brutal first inning to hold the Cardinals scoreless for 11 straight innings and managed just enough offense to eke out a critical victory tonight in extra innings. Gerardo Parra and Wily Peralta kept them in the game early, and a couple of September callups drove in runs to take home the win. In the first, the Cardinals BABIPed their way to three...

Brewers tie it in 9th, knock off Cardinals in 12th

  Carlos Gomez noticed the high leg kick. No matter that it was strong-armed Yadier Molina behind the plate, the Milwaukee speedster took off. Twice. Gomez walked against left-hander Kevin Siegrist with one out, stole second and third and then scored the go-ahead run on a bloop hit by rookie Hector Gomez in the 12th inning as the Brewers ended the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals...

Brewers-Cardinals Preview

After a dismal slump dropped them out of the NL Central lead and threatened their playoff chances altogether, the Milwaukee Brewers are back to playing the type of baseball that had them in first place for a majority of the season. In order to gain more ground, Milwaukee likely will have to solve a pitcher who held it in check just 10 days ago. The Brewers seek a sixth victory in...

Brewers display resiliency, overcome Cardinals

The September call-up played hero Tuesday night at Busch Stadium, driving in Carlos Gomez on a bloop single just beyond first base in the top of the 12th inning. A solid start from Wily Peralta, great relief work from the bullpen and a couple of timely runs resulted in a huge 3-2 come-from-behind win for...
