Jesus Aguilar hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning of Saturday's win over the Rockies.

With the game knotted at 3-3, Aguilar unloaded for a no-doubt two-run home run off Greg Holland to put the Brewers on top 5-3. Beyond that big dinger, he has done a fine job overall this season -- albeit with some struggles this month -- and is working to a .266/.333/.498 triple-slash with 12 homers and 41 RBI in 107 games.

Travis Shaw went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Rockies.

Shaw smacked a solo home run off Chad Bettis in the third inning, his 27th home run of the season. His power stroke has been on point of late, as he has now socked three home run in his last five games. The third baseman is in the midst of a career year in which he is slashing .289/.361/.553 across 412 at-bats.

Brandon Woodruff allowed one run on five hits over 4 2/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Saturday's win over the Rockies.

Woodruff struck out four and walked three on the evening. Outside of an RBI single surrendered to Jonathan Lucroy in the fourth inning, he managed to keep the Rockies off the scoreboard. Through his first three major league starts, the 24-year-old right-hander has pitched to a 1.62 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over the course of 16 2/3 innings. He will continue his acclimation to top-level competition in a road start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.

Orlando Arcia (back) returned to the Brewers' lineup with a bang on Friday, belting a solo home run in a loss to the Rockies.

Arcia was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back spasms and sat out on Wednesday as well as a precautionary measure. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .284/.327/.424 with 12 homers and 40 RBI on the season.
Aug 19 - 8:09 AM

Matt Garza was pounded for eight runs -- seven earned -- in 4 1/3 innings by the Rockies at Coors Field on Friday.

Garza's rotation spot is probably vulnerable now, what with Chase Anderson returning on Sunday. He's allowed 18 earned runs in 13 innings over his last three starts, taking his ERA from 3.68 to 4.81.
Aug 19 - 12:37 AM

Keon Broxton went 2-for-4 with a homer Friday in a losing cause against the Rockies.

Both Broxton and Domingo Santana hit their 20th homers of the season for the Brewers tonight. Broxton has six in his last nine games, and he's hitting .292 in 48 at-bats since being recalled from the minors on Aug. 1.
Aug 19 - 12:35 AM

Eric Thames tripled and doubled as the Brewers' leadoff man Friday.

Thames is 10-for-23 with a couple of homers in his last six games. He's not any sort of conventional leadoff man for the Brewers, but given his .362 OBP and his big struggles with men on base, it makes sense to hit him there now.
Aug 19 - 12:33 AM

Brewers placed C Andrew Susac on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 15, with a right trapezius strain.

Susac began the season on the disabled list with the same injury. He was no longer needed, anyway, with Stephen Vogt back from the DL.
Aug 18 - 3:59 PM

Brewers activated C Stephen Vogt from the 10-day disabled list.

Vogt missed a month of action with a sprained MCL. He'll go back to sharing time at catcher with Manny Pina.
Aug 18 - 3:57 PM

Brewers signed OF Quintin Berry to a minor league contract.

Berry had been playing for the independent league Long Island Ducks after the Twins released him back in May. He's been assigned to Triple-A Colorado Springs and could be a pinch-running option for the Brew Crew next month.

Brewers sent RHP Michael Blazek outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Blazek will stay in the organization as minor league depth after passing through waivers unclaimed. The right-hander has logged a disappointing 8.31 ERA across five big league appearances this season.
Aug 16 - 7:11 PM

Corey Knebel earned his 24th save of the year on Wednesday afternoon against the Pirates.

Knebel needed just 11 pitches to set the Pirates down in order in the top of the ninth inning. He struck out Josh Harrison for the final out.
Aug 16 - 5:38 PM

Keon Broxton hit two solo homers Wednesday in the Brewers' 7-6 comeback win over the Pirates.

The first solo shot got Milwaukee on the board in the bottom of the third inning and the second tied the game at 5-5. Broxton also homered as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night and the 27-year-old outfielder now has 19 total homers in 107 games this season. He has also racked up 19 stolen bases.
Aug 16 - 5:37 PM

Manny Pina slugged a go-ahead homer in the bottom of the eighth inning Wednesday as the Brewers topped the Pirates.

It was one of five Milwaukee homers in the 7-6 afternoon victory at Miller Park. Pina finished 2-for-4 and is batting .290/.333/.457 in 82 games this season, but he will probably lose some playing time when Stephen Vogt (knee) returns this weekend.
Aug 16 - 5:34 PM

Jimmy Nelson yielded five runs -- three earned -- over 6 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Pirates.

Milwaukee eventually won the game 7-6, with the victory going to setup man Anthony Swarzak. Nelson struck out seven batters and issued only one walk, but the Pirates tallied eight hits against him and the right-hander committed an error on a pickoff throw in the top of the first inning which led to Pittsburgh's first run. Nelson is 9-6 with a 3.74 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 169/38 K/BB ratio in 151 2/3 innings. Up next is a road start against the last-place Giants.
