Kyle Lohse allowed one run on four hits over 8 2/3 innings in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Pirates.
Lohse was robbed of the chance for a complete game, giving way to the bullpen after allowing a two-out baserunner. It was still a splendid outing for the right-hander, as he kept the Pirates to four hits and no walks while striking out nine. He's 2-1 with two dominant starts under his belt through three starts, and he'll have a chance to improve on that against the same Pirates team next weekend. Apr 13 - 4:57 PM

Kyle Lohse struggled with his control in Tuesday's start against the Phillies, but still walked away with the win after allowing three runs in five innings.

Lohse walked five and allowed seven hits while striking out four. The right-hander doesn't typically have control problems, but it may have only been a fluke. If the exorbitant amount of walks continues in his next handful of starts, then concern will be justified.
Apr 8 - 7:55 PM

Kyle Lohse allowed three runs, all on home runs, over seven innings in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Overall, Lohse was very good, striking out eight while posting a 1.00 WHIP. The right-hander made just two mistakes, which Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman deposited in the seats for all three of the Braves' runs against him. It was an unfortunate result, and Lohse will look for a better result against the Phillies on Monday.
Apr 1 - 10:49 PM

Kyle Lohse surrendered two runs in five innings of work in Thursday's start against the Reds.

Lohse allowed five hits, including a solo home run to Jason Bourgeois in the fifth inning. He also struck out four. The right-hander, 34, is attempting to post an ERA below 3.40 for the fourth consecutive season.
Mar 27 - 5:18 PM

Kyle Lohse allowed four runs -- three earned -- on eight hits over six innings against the Angels on Saturday.

Lohse served up bombs to Mike Trout and Josh Hamilton, but otherwise relegated the Angels to singles. More impressively, the right-hander, who isn't known for his strikeout ability, whiffed seven batters in his six innings. He actually lowered his spring ERA with the outing, an indication of his rough spring. He should have one more start before the season begins to tighten some things up.
Mar 22 - 8:37 PM

Kyle Lohse struggled in Monday's start against the White Sox, allowing five runs in 3 2/3 innings.

Lohse allowed seven hits and walked two while striking out two. The White Sox weren't exactly tearing the cover off of the ball, as only Matt Davidson logged an extra-base hit. As Lohse relies more on his defense due to his low strikeout rate, he will have these kinds of outings from time-to-time.
Mar 17 - 6:06 PM

Kyle Lohse gave up two runs to the Rockies over three innings in Thursday's 5-3 win.

Lohse allowed three hits, but didn't issue any walks. The right-hander has had a career rebirth over the last three seasons, a function of further lowering his walk rate and slightly bumping up his whiff rate.
Mar 6 - 6:23 PM

Kyle Lohse went two clean innings in his start against the Dodgers on Saturday.

Lohse posted all zeros in his first spring start. The right-hander is enjoying a normal start to spring after missing the first few weeks of camp last year while waiting for a team to sign him. The 35-year-old registered a 3.35 ERA over 32 starts with the club last season.
Mar 1 - 6:40 PM

Kyle Lohse allowed just two hits in a 4-0, complete-game win over the Braves on Wednesday.

Lohse made quick work of the Braves, needing just 89 pitches to breeze through nine innings. The right-hander is finishing strong, as the complete game was his second in his last three outings. Lohse finishes the year with a solid 11-10 record and 3.35 ERA in 32 starts.

Kyle Lohse allowed three runs over five innings Thursday in a loss to the Cubs.

Lohse yielded seven hits (including two home runs) and one walk while striking out four batters. This was just the second time since June 4 that he allowed more than one home run in a start. He'll carry a 3.51 ERA into his final start of the season next week against the Braves.

Kyle Lohse went the distance in a 5-1 win over the Reds on Friday night.

It was the ninth complete game of his career and his first since the 2011 season. Lohse held the Reds to just four hits and one walk while striking out five batters. He retired 23 batters in a row at one point. Not many things have gone right for the Brewers this season, but with a 3.46 ERA over 30 starts, Lohse has been a bright spot.

Kyle Lohse surrendered seven runs and 11 hits in five innings Friday in a loss to the Cubs.

Lohse gave up a grand slam as part of a five-run first inning, and while he bounced back a bit afterwards, it wasn't nearly enough. It was the first time since Aug. 23, 2011 that he's given up seven runs in a start. He's now 9-9 with a 3.59 ERA for the season.

Kyle Lohse was pounded for five runs on 13 hits over 5 1/3 innings of work but escaped with a no-decision in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Pirates.

Lohse is only partly to blame for his ugly line. He had held the Pirates scoreless though the first four innings and should have been out of the fifth with no damage, but Norichika Aoki was unable to corral a very catchable two-out drive from Felix Pie that was scored a double. After an infield single, Neil Walker followed with a three-run homer. You can trust Lohse next week at home versus the Angels.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Kyle Lohse was claimed off waivers but pulled back after the Brewers couldn't work out a deal with the claiming team.

It's unclear which team it was, but it's a moot point. Lohse has posted a 3.23 ERA over 23 starts this season and is under contract through 2015.
Fri, Aug 9, 2013 11:31:00 AM

CBS Sports' Danny Knobler reports that the Brewers placed Kyle Lohse on waivers Wednesday.

Of course, hundreds of players are placed on waivers at this time of the year, so it probably doesn't mean anything. Lohse has pitched well for the Brew Crew and could get claimed, but the odds of Milwaukee working out a deal with someone probably aren't high.
