Hernan Perez went 3-for-3 with a triple and two RBI as the Brewers topped the Pirates 5-3 on Thursday.

Perez is hitting .281 in 160 at-bats for the Brewers, though that comes with just three walks (three!) and one homer. Of course, this is a guy who would have spent all year in Triple-A with the Tigers had he not run out of options as a 24-year-old. The Brewers had room to give him a shot, and while he shouldn't be the future at third base for the club, he will give them an alternative at the middle-infield spots next year.

Taylor Jungmann pitched six innings of one-run ball to defeat the Pirates on Thursday.

Will Smith nearly blew Jungmann's three-run lead in the seventh, but the rest of the bullpen got the job done in what ended up being a 5-3 game. Jungmann moved to 9-5 with a sterling 2.42 ERA. He's been maybe the Brewers' biggest bright spot this season.
Sep 3 - 11:16 PM

Domingo Santana went 2-for-3 with his sixth homer and a walk Thursday against the Pirates.

Santana has four homers in 37 at-bats for the Brewers after hitting two in 39 at-bats for the Astros earlier this year. He lacks range in center, but the Brewers will keep running him out there in order to see how his bat comes along.

Adam Lind hit a solo home run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Brewers took down the Pirates on Wednesday.

Lind's solo blast came in the fifth inning off of Joe Blanton to make it a 6-4 game. It's his first home run since August 11, but he still maintains solid numbers, batting .287/.368/.483 with 18 home runs and 74 RBI on the season.

Zach Davies got a no-decision in his major league debut against the Pirates on Wednesday, allowing four runs in 4 1/3 innings, but the Brewers pulled out a victory.

Davies put up three zeroes in his first three innings, but the Pirates put their first two base runners on in the fourth before Aramis Ramirez clubbed a three-run homer. The rookie allowed two singles before leaving with one out in the fifth. Overall, Davies gave up four hits and three walks while striking out three. He'll look to improve upon the outing when he takes on the Marlins on the road next.

Jonathan Lucroy knocked in three runs in a 2-for-5 effort as the Brewers beat the Pirates on Wednesday.

Lucroy opened up the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning, then added a two-run single in the fourth to break a 3-3 tie. The catcher is on a 10-game hitting streak. At the end of August, he brought his OPS over .700 for the first time all season. Currently, Lucroy carries a .260/.323/.391 batting line with seven home runs and 40 RBI.

Brewers 1B prospect Garrett Cooper contributed a franchise-record five hits in Tuesday's win for Double-A Biloxi.

Three of Cooper's hits came with two strikes. The 24-year-old finished a home run shy of the cycle. Cooper is 11-for-16 with four RBI since his call-up from High-A Brevard County last week. 44 of his 135 hits this year have gone for extra bases.

Jean Segura went 2-for-4 with three RBI as the Brewers bested the Pirates 7-4 on Tuesday.

Segura had an RBI infield single in the first inning before contributing a big two-run single in the eighth. It was the first time Segura has had three RBI in a game since April 27. The shortstop is a better fantasy player than he is in real life, hitting .264/.288/.329 with four homers, 40 RBI, 43 runs scored and 20 stolen bases on the season.

Ryan Braun had an RBI single, a run scored and a stolen base Tuesday against the Pirates.

Braun's RBI single came in the first inning against Bucs ace Gerrit Cole. He scored later in the inning before walking and stealing a base in the fifth. The steal was Braun's 19th of the season, leaving him one short of the fourth 20-steal season of his career. When he gets there, Braun will join Paul Goldschmidt as the only 20-20 players thus far this year, assuming Justin Upton doesn't get there first. Braun is hitting .278/.349/.503 with 24 homers, 78 RBI and 76 runs scored in a convincing return to form this year.
Sep 1 - 11:27 PM

Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a two-run double and two runs scored Tuesday against the Pirates.

Lind doubled twice in the contest, giving him 28 doubles on the year. It was his third multi-hit game in his last three starts, raising his overall line to .285/.365/.476. The first baseman has 17 homers, 73 RBI and 56 runs scored with a month left in the season.
Sep 1 - 11:21 PM

Jimmy Nelson limited the Pirates to one run over seven innings in a win Tuesday.

Nelson scattered four hits without walking a soul in the victory, his 11th of the season. The right-hander struck out six in the effort. It was a strong rebound performance after Nelson had walked eight and allowed five runs over 3 1/3 innings his last time out. Nelson is now 11-10 with a 3.70 ERA through 27 starts this year. He'll next face the Reds on Sunday.
Sep 1 - 11:17 PM

Tyler Cravy (elbow) threw a successful 20-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday afternoon.

He'll go through a similar workout on Thursday and could then be cleared to join the Brewers' bullpen. Cravy has been out since August 19 with an elbow impingement.
Sep 1 - 5:13 PM

Matt Garza will start Friday against the Reds.

The veteran right-hander was previously scheduled to pitch against the Pirates, but the Brewers pushed him back after Zach Davies' arrival. Garza has really struggled of late and owns a disappointing 5.56 ERA on the year.
Sep 1 - 2:04 PM

Taylor Jungmann will start Thursday against the Pirates.

Jungmann was previously scheduled to pitch Wednesday, but Zach Davies is getting the call up to start instead. The 25-year-old tossed six scoreless innings last time out against the Reds and owns a 2.48 ERA through his first 15 starts in the majors.
Sep 1 - 2:03 PM

Brewers prospect left-hander Nathan Kirby underwent Tommy John surgery on Tuesday.

Kirby was selected No. 40 overall in this June's First-Year Player Draft and made just five appearances before going down with the injury. He's now likely to be sidelined until 2017, so it's a tough break for the 21-year-old.
