The Brewers look to bounce back from a demoralizing loss on Thursday

After taking a walk-off loss last night, the Brewers are looking to bounce back tonight in their second game against the Padres. They’ll get a bit of help as well, as Jakob Junis returns from the IL. For now, he’ll pitch out of the bullpen.

Padres squash valiant comeback effort

Box Score

The Milwaukee Brewers and San Diego Padres played a thrilling, back-and-forth game today at Petco Park, a game that featured an exciting late Brewers comeback and a deflating walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth after they’d tied it in the top of the inning to extend the game. It was a tough way to lose, but also an encouraging night for a Brewers team that had several breaks go against them and...

The Brewers come in at 44-30, 7.5 games ahead of the rest of the pack in the National League Central. The Friars are hanging around the wild card zone, and enter play at 38-40, in...

What Did the Brewers Learn From the Josh Hader Trade?

If the Milwaukee Brewers could do it all over again, would they still deal Josh Hader at the 2022 trade deadline? It’s a fascinating question. Nearly two years after the trade, the package the Brewers received for Hader has evolved in a very interesting way.

Looking at Baseball Savant’s numbers on Tobias Myers

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

Myers has allowed just one run across 20 1?3 innings in three June starts

Tobias Myers had a rough start to his major league career.

Debuting on April 23 against the Pirates, Myers had a decent first game (one run allowed across five innings), but he came back with back-to-back starts of four earned runs allowed, raising his ERA to 6.23 through three games.

Since that time, he’s made seven appearances (six starts, one relief), progressively lowering his FIP...

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Peralta pitched six scoreless in the win.

Box Score

Before Peralta even threw a pitch, the Brewers had staked him to a 1-0 lead. It was thanks to a little bit of small ball. Joey Ortiz led...

Could Brice Turang be having the best baserunning season in franchise history?

Lon Horwedel-USA TODAY Sports

Turang is having an incredible year on the basepaths

So far this season, Brice Turang has stolen 26 bases and been caught only once. His baserunning prowess has been a frequent topic of conversation, and it’s not just his prodigious ability to steal bases. Turang has been taking extra bases, getting infield hits, avoiding double plays, everything. It had me wondering: could Turang end up having the best baserunning season in franchise history?
