Zach Davies spun seven shutout innings Sunday in the Brewers’ victory over Atlanta.

Davies was pitching to contact—he didn’t strike anyone out—but he only gave up four hits and was extremely efficient over his 98-pitch outing. He got stronger as the game went on, allowing just two base runners after the second inning. Davies leads Milwaukee with eight victories this year despite a sluggish 4.96 ERA. He’ll look for win No. 9 Saturday against Miami.

Travis Shaw socked his 15th homer Sunday in the Brewers’ win over the Braves.

Shaw crushed a towering 429-foot blast off Julio Teheran to give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the first inning. The ball hung in the air for an incredible 5.3 seconds. That was all the offense Milwaukee needed as the Brewers cruised to a 7-0 win. The Red Sox’s decision to trade Shaw for setup man Tyler Thornburg, who is out for the year after undergoing thoracic outlet surgery, looks worse with each passing day.

Keon Broxton clobbered another homer as part of a three-hit, three-RBI afternoon Sunday in the Brewers’ win over the Braves.

Broxton also stole his 13th base of the season. His home run was a 366-foot solo shot off Julio Teheran in the second inning. Broxton was struggling for a while but the threat of top prospect Lewis Brinson seems to have lit a fire under him. Seven of Broxton’s 13 homers this year have come over his last 15 games.

Domingo Santana collected three hits Sunday in the Brewers’ 7-0 win over the Braves.

The Brewers went to town on Julio Teheran and Santana played a big role in the onslaught. He doubled, singled twice and scored two runs while driving in a run of his own on a fourth-inning sac fly. Sunday extended Santana's hitting streak to six games.

Brewers optioned OF Lewis Brinson to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Brinson got a taste of the major leagues, but struggled mightily in his limited action, hitting just .100/.206/.167 with no RBI and a 13/3 K/BB ratio in 34 plate appearances.

Brewers optioned C Jett Bandy to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

With Sunday's addition of Stephen Vogt, there's no room for the Brewers to carry three catchers and Bandy has been outplayed by Manny Pina. Bandy hit just .211/.287/.380 with six homers, 18 RBI and a 41/12 K/BB ratio in 157 plate appearances with the Brewers.

Brewers claimed C Stephen Vogt off waivers from the Athletics.

Vogt, 32, has batted just .217/.287/.357 this season and hit only .222/.287/.365 in the second half last season. However, he was an All-Star in 2015 and 2016 and is under team control through 2020. With Jett Bandy in a lengthy slump (.151/.240/.247 since May 1), the Brewers felt Vogt was worth a shot. He figures to share catching duties with Manny Pina but looks like a capable second catcher in fantasy leagues now with Miller Park as his new home.

Keon Broxton went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored during Saturday's loss to the Braves.

He singled to lead off the game, advanced to second on an infield single by Domingo Santana, stole third base and scored on a fielder's choice grounder. That was the only run his squad could manage in the ballgame. Broxton got off to a terrible start to the campaign and seemed destined for a bench role when top prospect Lewis Brinson was called to the majors, but his recent hot streak is likely going to enable him to keep his starting job when Ryan Braun comes off the disabled list soon. He has a .242 batting average with 12 home runs, 43 runs scored, 29 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 72 games.

Matt Garza took a loss despite turning in a quality start against the Braves on Saturday.

He gave up three runs on seven hits in six innings of work. He struck out four batters without issuing a base-on-balls. The big blow was a two-run blast by Brandon Phillips in the third inning. Garza falls to 3-4 with a 4.43 ERA and 1.28 WHIP after 11 starts. He will face the Marlins at home on Friday.

Nick Franklin was ejected for arguing Saturday against the Braves.

Franklin wasn't in the lineup after leaving the previous night's game with hamstring tightness, but was thrown out by second base umpire Jerry Meals for something he said from the dugout. Apparently he was upset the Braves were allowed to challenge a pickoff play at first base after waiting longer than their allotted 30 seconds. The ejection occurred with one out in the first inning.
Jun 24 - 4:38 PM

Eric Sogard (knee) is not in the Brewers' starting lineup on Saturday.

Sogard was removed from Friday's game after being hit by a pitch in his knee and apparently needs another day to rest. Keon Broxton has been elevated to the leadoff spot in the Brewers' lineup in a tasty matchup against James Shields and the White Sox.
Jun 24 - 12:46 PM

Jimmy Nelson surrendered four runs in five innings in a loss to the Braves on Friday.

Coming off his first career complete game, Nelson put himself in an early hole by giving up two runs in the first inning, including a solo homer to Brandon Phillips. The Braves later tacked on two more runs in the fifth. Nelson struck out eight and walked three in the loss and now stands at 5-3 with a 3.50 ERA and 93/24 K/BB ratio in 90 innings across 15 starts on the year. He’ll try to bounce back against the Reds in his next outing.
Jun 23 - 11:33 PM

Orlando Arcia went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and a stolen base Friday versus the Braves.

Arcia brought the Brewers within one run with his double off Jose Ramirez in the eighth, but that’s as close as they would get. The 22-year-old has perked up in June and now owns a .267/.312/.387 batting line on the year to go along with five homers and five steals.
Jun 23 - 11:31 PM

Keon Broxton slugged a solo homer, drew a walk, and scored two runs in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

Broxton has amassed six homers and 13 RBI over his last 13 games. The 27-year-old appeared vulnerable when top prospect Lewis Brinson was called up earlier this month, but the recent surge should buy him some time. Brinson will likely head back to Triple-A once Ryan Braun is activated from the disabled list.
Jun 23 - 11:31 PM

Brewers signed OF Keston Hiura.

He signed for $4 million, which was a little below his slot value of $4.57 million. An outfielder who can also play second base, Hiura hit .442 with eight homers, 42 RBI and nine steals this past season at UC Irvine.
