Chase Anderson allowed four runs -- three earned -- in five innings but escaped with a no-decision although his team lost to the Rangers on Wednesday.

He gave up eight hits and two walks while fanning only two batters on the evening. He got off to a rough start as he gave up three runs in the first inning before settling down to give up just one more run over the next four frames. Anderson finishes his season with a 9-11 record after 30 starts. He has a 4.39 ERA with 120 strikeouts in 151 2/3 innings.

Jonathan Villar went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

He led off the game with a solo shot to center field and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the second inning. His .285 batting average has cooled a bit as he was over .300 for a good chunk of the season. He has 19 home runs, 63 RBI and 91 runs scored. Villar leads the major leagues with 60 stolen bases.

Chris Carter went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Carter lifted off against Rangers starter A.J. Griffin the first inning for the two-run blast. He's now just one homer shy of 40, and his 39 homers, 92 RBI and 81 runs scored are all personal bests for the 29-year-old. In the National League, only Nolan Arenado has more homers than Carter with a handful of games left to play.
Sep 28 - 12:00 AM

Jimmy Nelson allowed five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Rangers on Tuesday.

Nelson, who has allowed a National League-worst 86 walks this year, lived up to his reputation, issuing four free passes to go along with his four hits allowed. One of those was a three-run home run by his former teammate Carlos Gomez. His season mercifully ends with an 8-16 record, 4.62 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through 32 starts.

Ryan Braun is out Tuesday with a sore wrist.

But the veteran outfielder is expected to return to action Wednesday, so it's obviously not too serious. Michael Reed will start in left field and bat eighth Tuesday versus Rangers right-hander A.J. Griffin.

Ryan Braun is getting the night off Tuesday.

Michael Reed will start in left field and bat eighth versus Rangers right-hander A.J. Griffin. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Braun, who's slashing .307/.368/.544 with 30 home runs and 90 RBI in 132 games this season. He also has 16 stolen bases and 78 runs scored.

Jonathan Villar homered twice, doubled and knocked in five runs to lead the Brewers past the Rangers 8-3 on Monday.

That's not so good for the old stolen base numbers there, Jonathan. Still, he's up to 18 homers this year after hitting 10 over 589 at-bats in parts of three seasons with the Astros. There was no doubt he'd steal a whole bunch of bases if the playing time was to be had, but the power outburst didn't seem so likely.
Sep 27 - 12:21 AM

Taylor Jungmann will not make his final scheduled start this weekend against the Rockies due to a hip injury.

Jungmann suffered the injury in his most recent start. He'll finish the year with a 7.76 ERA over six starts and two relief appearances. Brent Suter will start on Friday while Wily Peralta will get the nod on Saturday.
Sep 26 - 6:16 PM

Domingo Santana hit his 10th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Reds.

The Brewers had just six hits and only two extra-base hits against Dan Straily and company, with Santana's solo shot off Straily in the second inning turning out to be the only run the Brewers could push across in the loss. Santana now has 10 homers in 70 games this season, with six of those coming since he was activated from the disabled list on August 19 after missing almost two months with an elbow injury. A healthy Santana should contend for a starting spot in the Brewers' outfield in 2017.
Sep 25 - 12:48 AM

Kirk Nieuwenhuis feels better after receiving a cortisone injection in his strained abdomen.

He's hoping to return at some point this year but that seems a bit ambitious with only eight games left on the schedule. Nieuwenhuis has mostly been a non-factor this year, hitting just .210 with 13 HR, 44 RBI and eight steals.
Sep 24 - 5:13 PM

Ryan Braun came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning on Friday, propelling the Brewers to a 5-4 victory over the Reds.

Braun also singled and stole a base in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been extremely productive when he's been on the field this season, slashing .307/.369/.545 with 30 homers, 90 RBI and 16 stolen bases in just 129 games. While he remains an injury-risk, he's still one of the top five-category contributors in fantasy leagues and should be drafted as such next spring.
Sep 23 - 11:24 PM

Zach Davies was saddled with a no-decision on Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits across his five innings against the Reds.

The right-hander struck out three on the night and didn't walk a batter. All three runs came home on one mighty swing of Jose Peraza's bat in the fifth inning. For the most part, Davies has done a nice job this season, posting a 3.97 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over his 163 1/3 innings. He'll wrap up his season with a difficult matchup against the Rockies at Coors Field on Friday.
Sep 23 - 11:16 PM

Scooter Gennett went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

Gennett connected for a two-run home run off Ryan Vogelsong in the first inning, jumping the Brew Crew to an early 2-0 lead. The dinger was his 14th of the season. In addition, the 26-year-old second baseman is slashing .269/.320/.422 over 476 at-bats.
Sep 22 - 11:12 PM

Chase Anderson held the Pirates in check in Thursday's win, yielding one run on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Anderson struck out six and walked one on the evening. He kept the scoreboard clean outside of a Francisco Cervelli solo home run in the fifth inning. For the season, the 28-year-old right-hander has pitched to a 4.36 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 113/51 K/BB ratio over 146 2/3 innings. His 2016 schedule will finish out with a road date with the Rangers next Wednesday.
Sep 22 - 11:05 PM

Kirk Nieuwenhuis has been diagnosed with a sports hernia.

He's been out for nearly a week with what the Brewers had been calling an abdominal strain, but now we have a more specific diagnosis. Nieuwenhuis was given a cortisone shot Wednesday and still hopes to make it back this season, but it doesn't look like a given.
