CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Brewers intend to exercise their half of Aramis Ramirez's $14 million option for 2015.

Of course, Ramirez could always turn down his portion of the option and attempt to find a multi-year deal. The 36-year-old has been productive when healthy this season, batting .295/.341/.447 with 15 home runs and 65 RBI over 123 games.

Carlos Gomez used his legs to give the Brewers a win Tuesday, stealing two bases and scoring the winning run in the 3-2 win over the Cardinals in 12 innings.

Gomez had one hit in four at-bats before working a one-out walk in the 12th inning. He proceeded to steal second and, shortly after, third base off the tandem of Kevin Siegrist and Yadier Molina. A two-out bloop single from Hector Gomez (no relation) allowed Carlos Gomez to score the winning run. Gomez is closing in on his first 100-run season, as Tuesday's run gives him 91 runs scored and 33 steals to go with a .286/.356/.479 line.

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a double and a home run in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

Parra was one of the few Brewers capable of getting to Cardinals starter Lance Lynn, taking him deep to right in the fourth inning for a solo shot. Parra also doubled in the 11th inning but was stranded on base. The outfielder now has nine home runs to go with a .267/.314/.381 line on the year, but he's been especially rejuvenated since being dealt to the Brewers -- Parra is batting .305 in 95 at-bats since the deadline trade.

Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless 12th inning to earn the save against the Cardinals Tuesday.

K-Rod was asked to retire Matt Adams, Jhonny Peralta and Yadier Molina, and he needed just 11 pitches to accomplish the feat. His 42 saves are the most in a season since he saved 62 games in 2008. The 32-year-old owns a 3.14 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 72/17 K/BB ratio over 66 innings this year.

Wily Peralta allowed two early runs but recovered to hold the Cardinals to just those two runs over seven innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

It couldn't have started much worse for Peralta, as the Cardinals strung together three straight singles to lead off the game. He then walked Matt Adams to bring in a run, but a Jhonny Peralta double play and a weak groundout from Yadier Molina limited the damage. Peralta then straightened it out, giving up just two hits over the next six innings. He remains 16-10 with a 3.70 ERA on the year, and Peralta will look to improve on those numbers Sunday at the Pirates.

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 with two RBI as the Brewers downed the Reds 9-2 on Sunday.

Lucroy collected three singles, with a two-run single in the fourth inning accounting for his two RBI. The catcher, who has had blossomed as a star in 2014, is finishing strong, batting .353 with seven RBI in September. Lucroy is batting .303/.371/.477 on the season.
Sep 14 - 6:25 PM

Matt Clark homered in his third straight game Sunday, hitting a three-run shot in a win over the Reds.

Clark hit homers in back-to-back wins over the Marlins earlier in the week, and getting the start Sunday he hit a three-run shot off Logan Ondrusek in the seventh inning. It was his only hit in five at-bats. The first baseman is hitting .235/.222/.765 through his first nine major league games.
Sep 14 - 6:17 PM

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-3 with a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Reds.

The stolen base was Gomez' 31st of the season, and he's scored 90 runs. Injuries nagged him earlier this month, but he's 9-for-24 (.375) with three doubles, four RBI and five runs scored since getting healthy. The 28-year-old is hitting .286/.355/.480 overall.
Sep 14 - 6:14 PM

Matt Garza held the Reds to one run over six innings in a win Sunday.

Garza allowed just four hits while walking three, with Todd Frazier's solo home run serving as the Reds' only run against him. He also struck out six over his six innings. Between injury and ineffectiveness, the win was Garza's first since July 24. The right-hander is 8-8 with a 3.74 ERA, and he'll square off with the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

The Brewers plan to work out catching prospect Clint Coulter at third base and the outfield during the Instructional League.

Coulter caught 61 games at Low-A Wisconsin this season but also started 64 games in the designated hitter spot. It's his bat that will carry him, as the Brewers will try to squeeze him in somewhere at a position. Coulter hit .287/.410/.520 with 22 homers and 89 RBI this season. "Back in high school, I did play a little bit of third base and a little bit of outfield," he said. "So, we'll see. I'm going to instructional league as a catcher, but they did tell me I will probably be working at some other spots, maybe third base and the outfield. So far, I'm a catcher."
Sep 14 - 9:21 AM

Khris Davis went hitless in four at-bats in his return to action Saturday.

Davis had missed the last couple games with a sore forearm. The 26-year-old sports a .249/.305/.471 batting line with 22 homers and 68 RBI over 134 contests for the Brewers this season.
Sep 14 - 5:36 AM

Yovani Gallardo held the Reds to two runs in six innings but the Brewers lost to the Reds on Saturday.

Gallardo gave up just four hits -- and all of them were singles -- but the Milwaukee offense provided only one run of support and so the right-hander fell to 8-10 on the year. He'll carry a 3.59 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his next start on the road versus the Pirates.
Sep 13 - 10:25 PM

Lyle Overbay had a walk-off RBI single in Friday's 3-2 win over the Reds.

Jonathan Lucroy doubled off Jumbo Diaz to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning and moved over to third base on a groundout from Aramis Ramirez. Reds manager Bryan Price then had Diaz walk Ryan Braun and Gerardo Parra intentionally to face Overbay, who slashed a pitch into the left-center field gap to win it. The Brewers have won three straight and remain 1 1/2 games behind the Pirates for the second Wild Card spot in the National League.
Sep 13 - 12:33 AM

Kyle Lohse took a no-decision Friday after allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings against the Brewers.

Lohse allowed five hits (including a solo homer) and two walks while striking out six. While he didn't get the win, it was nice to see after he really struggled over his previous two starts. The veteran right-hander will bring a 3.81 ERA into a road start against the Cardinals next week.
Sep 13 - 12:33 AM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a walk, and a run scored Friday against the Reds.

Lucroy singled home a run in the fourth inning and scored the winning run in the ninth after reaching on a leadoff double. The 28-year-old has hit safely in 14 out of his last 15 games and owns a .302/.370/.478 batting line to go along with 13 home runs and 65 RBI. He's deserving of being in the National League MVP conversation.
