Crew wins on Aguilar walk-off HR after epic AB

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 00:57:20 EDT

Travis Shaw also homered for the Brewers, his second in as many games, while former Milwaukee prospect Lewis Brinson hit a three-run homer for the Marlins to give him three clouts in as many games to start the series.

Guerra, Crew go for sweep, 6 straight wins

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 20:08:08 EDT

Junior Guerra has a 0.82 ERA in two excellent starts following a promotion from Triple-A Colorado Springs, and he'll try to make it three in a row in Sunday's 1:10 p.m. CT series finale against the Marlins. Hitters are 5-for-36 (.139) against Guerra so far through two starts, including a no-decision against the Reds on Tuesday in which Guerra allowed one hit in 5 2/3 innings.

Crew holds out Braun (calf); Miley makes start

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 14:26:12 EDT

Hader, Guerra dominant in shutout of Reds

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 01:47:30 EDT

Junior Guerra delivered the scoreless start and Eric Thames hit the decisive home run. But it might be Josh Hader people are talking about around the water cooler in the morning. Continuing his jaw-dropping start to the season, Hader struck out three more batters for another two-inning save in the Brewers' 2-0 win over the Reds at Miller Park. Hader has faced 41 batters this season and recorded 35 outs, with 25 strikeouts. Reds starter Sal Romano allowed two runs in five-plus innings and took the loss for Cincinnati.



Thames smacks 6th April HR in return to lineup

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 01:10:01 EDT

There's something about Eric Thames in April. Especially when he gets to swing the bat against the Cincinnati Reds. Returning from a minor groin injury to face his favorite opponent, Thames' two-run home run in the sixth inning was the difference in Milwaukee's 2-0 win at Miller Park.



Hader's K's among notable April performances

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 10:51:52 EDT

It's true that it's only mid-April and there's a lot of unexpected early-season numbers that won't last, because they simply can't. That doesn't mean they don't hold some interest, however. At the very least, it's interesting enough to see some names you might not have thought about carrying some massive numbers. There's five in particular that stood out to us. Which ones will last?

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 01:21:39 EDT

Crew shows heart, but can't overcome big deficit

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 00:47:51 EDT

With more than half of their 2018 home run total hit by players sidelined with injuries, the Brewers managed just two singles off Luis Castillo through the first six innings and couldn't overcome a nine-run deficit en route to a 10-4 loss to the Reds on Monday night at Miller Park to open a seven-game homestand.



Nottingham called up, draws 2 walks in debut

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 00:51:24 EDT

After limping home from New York with primary catcher Manny Pina among the players battling day-to-day injuries, the Brewers called up catching prospect Jacob Nottingham for the start of a weeklong homestand Monday.

Crew subdued by walk-off HR in rubber game

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 18:30:08 EDT

The Brewers arrived at Citi Field with a perfect record in one-run games and limped home after a pair of one-run losses.

Counsell's ejection comes in odd 5th frame

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 19:05:36 EDT

Where it began: Jackie honored in NYC, beyond

Sun, 15 Apr 2018 20:51:30 EDT

Sunday marked the 71st anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking Major League Baseball's color barrier, and for the 10th straight season, players throughout the game donned Robinson's iconic No. 42. At Citi Field, steps from where fans passed through the Ebbets Field-inspired Jackie Robinson Rotunda on the way to their seats, bearers of '42' included Brewers left-hander Brent Suter, who grew up a white kid in suburban Cincinnati but said he participated proudly because, "he wasn't just an impetus for change for baseball, but society as a whole."

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 00:42:21 EDT

Pair of HRs just enough as Crew edges Cards

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 19:27:27 EDT

Brewers manager Craig Counsell has talked about the need for the offense to score some runs to take the pressure off a taxed pitching staff. While the runs didn't exactly come in droves and the bullpen innings still mounted, the Brewers' offense gave its pitchers a slightly larger, and much-needed, margin for error, and Milwaukee held on to beat the Cardinals, 3-2, in the rubber game of a three-game series Wednesday afternoon.



Thames hits 5th HR off Bader's extended glove

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 19:52:31 EDT

Walk at the park: Brewers stun Cards

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 01:38:43 EDT

Sun, 8 Apr 2018 19:34:36 EDT

Late miscues spoil Crew's chance for close win

Hader, the long-haired, loose-armed reliever singled off Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks for his first Major League hit leading off the bottom of the fifth. He trotted home when Eric Thames came through two batters later with a tying, two-run home run in what became a 5-4 walk-off win.



Knebel hits DL, but encouraged by prognosis

Fri, 6 Apr 2018 19:56:47 EDT

Crew's flair for dramatic continues with walk-off

Sat, 7 Apr 2018 02:18:45 EDT

Craig Counsell described his Brewers as "a little bit of a high-wire act" on Friday afternoon, which seemed an apt description as the team bounced around the infield a few hours later for the second time this week. Orlando Arcia's one-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning finished a 5-4 win over the Cubs at Miller Park.
