Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Lind connected for his 13th homer when he took Reds starter Josh Smith deep in the fourth inning. He also added a single and walked twice to finish the day 2-for-3. Toiling away for a bad Brewers team, Lind is quietly posting a .295/.370/.507 triple-slash line with 13 homers and 48 RBI. After some lean years with the Blue Jays, his bat has come back in style over the last two-going-on-three seasons.
Jul 4 - 11:34 PM

Jimmy Nelson tossed 5 2/3 innings of three-run ball in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Nelson struck out five and walked one, with the home run ball serving as his nemesis. Marlon Byrd and Ivan De Jesus Jr. took him deep for solo shots in the second and fifth innings, respectively, with the third run on his line coming across on a Byrd RBI single in the sixth inning. With the start under his belt, Nelson's worked his numbers to a completely average 4.50 ERA and 1.31 WHIP, plus an 83/36 K/BB ratio over 102 innings. Up next on the docket, a road start against the Dodgers.
Jul 4 - 11:21 PM

Carlos Gomez left Saturday's game against the Reds with a left wrist contusion.

He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout before exiting in the sixth inning. His X-rays came back negative and the Brewers are listing him as day-to-day. Gerardo Parra is likely to play center field if Gomez gets the day off on Sunday.
Jul 4 - 10:16 PM

Carlos Gomez launched a grand slam and finished with five RBI to help down the Reds by a 12-1 score on Friday.

Gomez stepped up with the bases loaded and the Brewers up 5-0 in the seventh inning. He promptly unloaded on a Carlos Contreras offering for a grand slam to vanquish any vague hopes of a Reds comeback. In addition to the big slam, Gomez also chipped in with an RBI single to finish 3-for-5 with five total RBI. Overall, he's hitting .271/.314/.427 with six homers, 31 RBI and 36 runs scored. Plus seven steals, though he's also been caught four times.
Jul 3 - 11:47 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's demolition of the Reds.

Throw a dart at the Brewer lineup on Friday and you were liable to hit somebody having a big game. Parra did his part leading off. He smacked a solo homer in the first inning to start the scoring party, then added a sacrifice fly in the ninth just for kicks and giggles. His numbers are solid across the board, as he's slashing .303/.337/.466 with six homers, 24 RBI and 35 runs scored. He could very well end up being traded before the deadline, given the Brewers' 34-48 record.
Jul 3 - 11:38 PM

Mike Fiers pitched a superb game against the Reds on Friday, hurling seven innings of shutout ball in the 12-1 win.

Fiers struck out only two, but he counteracted his lack of strikeouts by limiting the Reds to just three hits while walking only one. The strong start comes on the heels of a seven-inning, one-run performance against the Twins. Pitching for a bad Brewers team, Fiers has quietly posted a respectable 3.87 ERA, though the 1.42 WHIP is on the high side. A home start against the Braves is up next.
Jul 3 - 11:22 PM

Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Goforth didn't allow a run in four appearances spanning 2 1/3 innings earlier this season with the Brewers. He'll be a middle reliever.
Jul 3 - 10:00 AM

Brewers recalled RHP Tyler Cravy from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Cravy tossed seven frames of one-run ball in his major league debut last month but was sent back down after the game. He will be used in long relief.
Jul 3 - 9:59 AM

Brewers optioned INF Jason Rogers to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Rogers got off to a nice start with the Brew Crew but hasn't had a hit in a couple weeks while playing sparingly. He returns to a .360/.429/.640 batting line at Colorado Springs.
Jul 3 - 9:58 AM

Brewers optioned RHP Corey Knebel to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

It's a surprise, as Knebel has pitched well with a 2.95 ERA and 19 strikeouts over 21 1/3 innings. Tyler Cravy and David Goforth have been added to the bullpen.
Jul 3 - 9:56 AM

Adam Lind broke a 7-7 tie with an RBI single in the 11th inning on Thursday, propelling the Brewers to an 8-7 victory over the Phillies.

Lind finished the night 2-for-6 with a run scored and two RBI. Prior to his 11th inning heroics, he delivered an RBI single as part of a three-run uprising in the first inning against Phillies starter Chad Billingsley. Lind is enjoying a terrific season in the middle of the Brewers lineup, slashing .295/.365/.502 with 12 homers and 46 RBI.
Jul 2 - 10:51 PM

Matt Garza struggled in a no-decision against the Phillies on Thursday, giving up four runs on 10 hits over his six frames.

Garza struck out three on the night while issuing one free pass. He left with his team maintaining a 7-4 advantage, but the Brewers bullpen was unable to hold on and provide his fifth victory. Mired in a high disappointing season, he'll carry a 5.55 ERA and 68/33 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's matchup against the Braves.
Jul 2 - 10:47 PM

Kyle Lohse pitched well enough to win, allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings, as the Brewers beat the Phillies by a 9-5 margin on Wednesday.

Lohse was more impressive at the plate, as he singled three times and scored two runs in four at-bats. On the mound, he allowed nine hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. Against a more competent offense, the results wouldn't have been as good. Nevertheless, Lohse now has a 6.24 ERA with a 1.38 WHIP and a 70/22 K/BB ratio over 98 innings. He'll face the Braves at home in his next start.
Jul 1 - 10:18 PM

Adam Lind hit a two-run home run in a 2-for-5 effort as the Brewers topped the Phillies on Wednesday.

Lind got the scoring started, taking Aaron Harang yard in the first inning for a two-run shot. The first baseman now has 12 home runs, 44 RBI, and a .294/.366/.506 triple-slash line on the season.
Jul 1 - 10:09 PM

Scooter Gennett went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a triple, three RBI, and two runs scored to lead the Brewers past the Phillies on Wednesday.

It's his first three-hit game of the year and only his sixth multi-hit game. Gennett doubled and scored on Adam Lind's homer in the first inning, scored after reaching on a fielder's choice in the fourth, hit a two-run double in the sixth, and ripped an RBI triple in the eighth. He otherwise has not had much to write home about offensively, batting .224/.260/.392 with four home runs and 12 RBI.
