Brewers Miss the Sweep, Losing to the Diamondbacks in Game Three

It was a cold night in Phoenix Tuesday night as Brewers fans watched their team take a beating from the Diamondbacks in game three of the five-game NL Division playoff series.  Heading in to game three, the Milwaukee Brewers lead the series with two wins at Miller Park, but the Diamondbacks came back strong to prevent the sweep. Just 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position while losing the first two games, it seems the Diamondbacks didn’t waste any time sending runners around once they got home to the desert.  Rookie Josh Collmenter dominated Milwaukee, helping the Diamondbacks beat the Brewers 8-1.  The hatchet-throwing right-hander had two impressive outings against Milwaukee during the regular season and kept […]

Brewers Face the Diamondbacks at Miller Park for Game One of the National League Division Series

The National League Central Division champion Milwaukee Brewers opens their best-of-five National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks today at 1:07 p.m. (CST). The Brewers (96-66) capped their turnaround year with their first-ever NL Central title. The Brewers, led by sluggers Prince Fielder (38 homers, 120 RBI) and Ryan Braun (.332, 33 homers, 111 RBI), return to the postseason for the first time since 2008, when they were the wild card. The Brewers didn’t clinch the NL’s No. 2 seed and the chance to open at home until the final game of the season September 28th. The Diamondbacks wrote their own improbable playoff story, going from worst to first in the NL West. Arizona went 65-97 last […]

Milwaukee Brewers Still Have To Face Some Big Contenders

Nearing their conclusion of June with 13 wins out of the 23 games played this month, the Milwaukee Brewers still face the New York Yankees for a three game series that begins this Tuesday.   Sitting at a very comfortable nine games over the .500 mark— not to mention a 73 percent “home game” winning percentage, (which is currently the major league’s best) the Brewers have managed to increase their lead in the NL Central standings by three games.  Granted, the Brewers are 15-24 on the road so far this season, but lets not forget what happened just a few short years ago. In the 2008 MLB season the Milwaukee Brewers had a huge lead at the All Star […]

Uecker returns to the Brewers radio booth

Just three months after heart surgery,the Milwaukee Brewers Hall of Fame radio broadcaster Bob Uecker will be back behind the microphone this Friday when the Washington Nationals visit Miller Park. In his 40th season broadcasting Brewers games, the 75-year-old Uecker underwent surgery April 30 to replace his aortic valve, aortic root and part of his ascending aorta. Uecker, who displayed his customary humor during a guest appearance on the air June 24 in the second inning of the Brewers’ game against the Minnesota Twins, will hold a news conference prior to Friday’s game. I’m sure many listeners share my sentiment when I say that it will be great to hear those famous words, “Play Ball!”

Milwaukee Brewers on a Roll?

With a 1-and-1 against the Los Angeles Dodgers this past Wednesday and Thursday, coupled with their 3-to-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the opener of a three-game series at Chase Field, it appears that the Milwaukee Brewers may be on a roll?  But what direction are they rolling — that is the question… Yovani Gallardo continued his strikeout tear with 10 in five innings, Rickie Weeks and Jim Edmonds homered, and Ryan Braun scored the game-winning run on a wild pitch in the fifth inning.  The Brewers got the lead back in the fifth, and Rickie Weeks led off with a single, but was forced out at second on a fielder’s choice from Joe Inglett. Braun then […]
