Comprehensive and up-to-date Milwaukee Brewers news, scores, schedule, stats and roster


The Brewers collapsed in the 9th inning and their troubles are only starting

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 04:53:52 GMT

Jeremy Jeffress didn’t cover first, Wade Davis got out of a bases-loaded jam and Kris Bryant crushed a go-ahead 2-run homer in extra innings. The Cubs 5-3 victory in Milwaukee on Thursday night was more intense than advertised, and likely more wild than fans of either side would’ve liked. For 10 innings the Brewers and Cubs traded off pressure-filled moments as Milwaukee looked to gain on Chicago’s 3.5 game lead in the National League Central.

Kris Bryant knocks out Brewers and knows what big-game experience means for Cubs

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 05:16:44 GMT

Cubs executives bet on Jon Lester because they had so much inside information from their time together with the Boston Red Sox and believed he would age gracefully with his fluid left-handed delivery, imposing physical presence and competitive personality. The Cubs also went into it with their eyes wide open, knowing the history of nine-figure contracts for pitchers and how those megadeals usually lead to a crash. “I think it’s way too early to talk about that,” general manager Jed Hoyer said Thursday at Miller Park, where Lester’s mysterious struggles overshadowed the beginning of a four-game showdown against the Milwaukee Brewers that could decide the National League Central race. The night before at Tropicana Field, Lester got rocked in an 8-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, leaving him with a 5.91 ERA in four September starts since coming off the disabled list.

Cubs rally in 9th, beat Brewers 5-3 in 10th to extend lead

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 06:27:31 GMT

The pressure was on and Javier Baez delivered for the Chicago Cubs. Baez grounded a tying single with two outs in the ninth inning, Kris Bryant hit a two-run homer in the 10th and the Cubs widened their NL Central lead over Milwaukee, rallying past the Brewers 5-3 Thursday night. Chicago is now 4 1/2 games ahead of the Brewers after winning the opener of a four-game series.

Rays, Snell end Cubs' 7-game winning streak

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 03:28:49 GMT

Their seven-game winning streak is over and the Chicago Cubs are still being challenged for the NL Central lead with 11 games left in the season. Blake Snell gave up two hits in seven shutout innings and the Tampa Bay Rays ended the Cubs' season-best winning streak 8-1 on Wednesday night. The Cubs, who had not lost since being swept by the Milwaukee Brewers in a three-game series in Chicago on Sept. 8-10, are scheduled to open a four-game series in Milwaukee on Thursday night, holding a 3 1/2-game lead over the Brewers.

Cubs' Arrieta back for opener of showdown in Milwaukee

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 21:16:50 GMT

Jake Arrieta returns to the mound Thursday as the Chicago Cubs try to lock down the National League Central when they open a four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. "He looked really good," Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said afterward Arrieta's side session. Arrieta (14-9, 3.48 ERA) has been a big reason for the Cubs' turnaround, posting a 1.98 ERA in the second half.

MLB Postseason 2017: Updated Wild Card Standings

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 15:30:43 GMT

BALTIMORE -- Roaring from behind and then finally winning in extra innings, the Boston Red Sox did more than merely maintain their lead in the AL East. They showed their mettle, a characteristic that should come in handy during the postseason. Andrew Benintendi hit a two-run single in the 11th inning, Mookie Betts had four RBIs and Boston beat the Baltimore Orioles 10-8 Monday night for their ninth win in 12 games. Xander Bogaerts homered and scored three runs for the Red Sox, who remained three games ahead of the second-place Yankees in the AL East and reduced to four their magic number for clinching a playoff berth. Boston erased a five-run deficit with a six-run fifth inning and needed 10

MLB playoffs 2017: Updating the postseason picture

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 05:02:31 GMT

As the postseason inches ever-closer and the last divisional and wild card races sort themselves out, there will be a lot of updates about who’s in things and who’s out. We’re here to make following all of that easier with updates about the latest action around the league from now until the season ends. Sept. 21: Colorado is having some fun on Twitter about their current Wild Card situation — claiming to currently be fans of the Cubs and Reds. The Cubs because they played the Brewers on Thursday night and the Reds because they faced off against the Cardinals. Both teams that are hot on the Rockies’ tail in the NL Wild Card race. The Reds didn’t live up to their end of the bargain on Thursday

What’s wrong with Jon Lester? And is there enough time for Cubs to fix it?

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 03:47:08 GMT

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Even in the good times, Jon Lester doesn’t really have great body language, trying to channel his emotions, use that competitive anger and stay focused on the next pitch, so there was no way for him to hide his frustrations this time. Lester handed the ball to manager Joe Maddon on Wednesday night at Tropicana Field and trudged back toward the visiting dugout with his head down and his team down six runs in the fifth inning of an 8-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays that left the Cubs searching for answers. What’s wrong with Lester? That question snapped the Cubs out of a seven-game winning streak, the talk about playoff rotations and the computer simulations that project the

The shame of MLB's morally repugnant anti-netting excuses

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 04:25:55 GMT

Every day that goes by with even one major league stadium lacking protective netting past each dugout, if not farther down both lines, baseball teams are inviting a child to get hit in the face by a projectile traveling 100 mph. Think about that.
