Francisco Rodriguez kept the Cardinals off the board in the ninth inning, earning his ninth save and preserving Monday's 1-0 victory.

Rodriguez allowed a leadoff single to Jason Heyward, but got two quick outs on strikeouts. Heyward then stole second, and Rodriguez walked Peter Bourjos to put the go-ahead run on base. He bounced back, inducing a game-ending ground out from Kolten Wong. The veteran closer has converted the save in all nine opportunities thus far with a 1.42 ERA and a 22/6 K/BB ratio in 19 innings.

Mike Fiers fired six shutout innings to earn the win against the Cardinals on Monday.

Fiers punched out six batters while issuing a pair of walks and allowing four hits, all singles. The Cardinals had a runner in scoring position only twice against him, in the first and six innings. Fiers has been solid over his last five starts despite making it to the sixth inning on just two occasions. On the season, he has a 4.06 ERA with a 1.49 WHIP and a 69/19 K/BB ratio over 57 2/3 innings. He'll match up with the Twins in a road start next.

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, providing the Brewers their only run as they staved off the Cardinals on Monday.

Gomez brought Jean Segura home on an RBI single in the first inning against Jaime Garcia. The two teams would exchange goose-eggs the rest of the way. Gomez is on a five-game hitting streak and now carries a .264/.309/.457 triple-slash line with five home runs, 21 RBI, and five stolen bases.

Tyler Cravy is in line to start on Tuesday against the Cardinals.

That's assuming he's not needed in relief on Monday, which is certainly possible after Sunday's 17-inning game. Cravy holds a 4.04 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 43/22 K/BB ratio over 49 innings at Triple-A Colorado Springs this season.
Jun 1 - 6:26 PM

Brewers activated C Jonathan Lucroy from the 15-day disabled list.

Lucroy is back with the Brewers on Monday night in St. Louis after missing close to six weeks with a fractured left big toe. He was off to a poor start before the injury, but the 28-year-old catcher should be a strong fantasy bet going forward. He hit .301/.373/.465 with 53 doubles, 13 home runs, and 69 RBI in 153 games last season.

Brewers optioned C Juan Centeno to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Centeno is making way for Jonathan Lucroy, who will rejoin the Brewers on Monday night in St. Louis after missing five weeks with a fractured left big toe. Centeno managed just one hit in 21 at-bats with Milwaukee.

Brewers purchased the contract of RHP Tyler Cravy from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The 25-year-old right-hander has compiled a 4.04 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 43/22 K/BB ratio over 49 innings at Triple-A. It's unclear if he'll provide an extra arm in a severely depleted bullpen, or if he'll be used as a spot starter on Tuesday.

Brewers optioned RHP Tyler Wagner to Double-A Biloxi.

He struggled in his big league debut against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, allowing five runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 frames. He'll continue to refine his craft in the minor leagues and could get another shot with the big league club the next time that a spot starter is needed.
May 31 - 8:22 PM

Martin Maldonado hit a walk-off home run in the 17th inning to give the Brewers a 7-6 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Maldonado sweetly, mercifully ended a game that saw Brewers starter Matt Garza pitching five innings of relief ball. The catcher smacked his game-winner off of Vidal Nuno with one out in the bottom of the 17th frame. Maldonado played well throughout the game, finishing 4-for-6 with two walks, a homer, two doubles, two RBI and three runs scored. Just all-around goodness here for a player who is hitting .182/.254/.273 in 121 at-bats. The world works in mysterious ways.

Making his major league debut against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, Tyler Wagner allowed five runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 innings.

Wagner ran into trouble almost immediately, when Paul Goldschmidt welcomed him to the bigs with a solo homer in the first inning. In the second frame, Wagner uncorked a wild pitch to score Mark Trumbo before allowing a pair of RBI singles. A fourth-inning sacrifice fly by Cliff Pennington would be the last run to score on Wagner's watch. In addition to the nine hits and five runs allowed, the 24-year-old right-hander struck out two and walked one. This start could have gone more smoothly, but his Triple-A numbers are quite good at a 2.01 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 38/15 K/BB ratio in 53 2/3 innings. With Wily Peralta (oblique) on the shelf, Wagner could see additional starts moving forward, though Sunday's results don't exactly help his case.
May 31 - 8:02 PM

Mike Fiers will start for the Brewers on Monday against the Cardinals in St. Louis.

He had been scheduled to pitch on Tuesday, but gets bumped up with Matt Garza having to work in relief on Sunday. It's unclear if the Brewers will use Jimmy Nelson on short rest on Tuesday or explore minor league options to fill that start.
May 31 - 7:07 PM

Brewers outfield prospect Michael Reed ripped four hits in Saturday's win for Double-A Biloxi.

Reed drove in four runs Saturday, upping his season total to 28. He's hit .467 during his eight-game hitting streak. The 22-year-old ranks second in the Southern League in batting average (.340), second in OPS (.949), third in slugging (.532), fourth in on base percentage (.417) and sixth in stolen bases (12). Reed shouldn't have to toil in Biloxi much longer. The next step would be a promotion to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Adam Lind is not in Sunday's lineup due to a back injury.

He's going to sit out Monday, as well, since the Cardinals are slated to start lefty Jaime Garcia. Lind has a history of back issues but is hoping this is just a minor setback. Jason Rogers is at first base in Lind's place.
May 31 - 12:22 PM

Brewers purchased the contract of RHP Tyler Wagner from Double-A Biloxi.

Wagner will make his major league debut on Sunday against the Diamondbacks. The 24-year-old right-hander has posted a 2.01 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 38/15 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 innings at Biloxi this season. He could be around for a while if he pitches well with Wily Peralta (oblique) expected to miss at least a month.
May 31 - 11:04 AM

Brewers placed OF Khris Davis on the 15-day disabled list with a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Davis will undergo surgery on Tuesday. It's not clear at this time how long he'll be sidelined, but obviously it will be for a while. Gerardo Parra will be the Brewers' left fielder while Davis is on the shelf.
