Burn the tape of this series and forget about it.

Now this game — this was Cardinals Devil Magic.

The Brewers took a 5-1 lead into the 7th inning in this afternoon’s series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals, a situation that has worked out for them many, many times this season, and they lost.

They didn’t just lose, though. That would be too easy. They lost in the most annoyingly infuriating way possible.

The Brewers could end up losing one of their top bats from this season

As expected, Brewers outfield Avisail Garcia has hit the number of plate appearances needed to convert what was a team option for next season into a mutual option.

Avi Garcia has qualified to convert his club option into a mutual option, and if he so chooses can now declare free agency. He qualified based on 1,050 plate appearances over 2020-21 with last year’s number...

Milwaukee is hitting a lull as the final couple of weeks of regular season baseball approach

All of a sudden the Milwaukee Brewers are losing baseball games. Milwaukee lost its fourth consecutive game and the third in row to the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals are surging, and right now, it is at the Brewers’ expense.

St. Louis jumped on the Brewers early. In the top of the first, Tyler O’ Neil took Brewers’ starter, Brett Anderson, deep for a...

Anderson set to make the start tonight against the Cardinals

Brewers late rally comes up short as they lose to Cardinals 2-1

The Brewers tried to make a comeback in the late innings, but couldn’t break through.

Box Score

With the Brewers magic number at three, they have a division title in sight. Unfortunately, their wheels have been spinning over the last few days.

The Brewers hoped that having Brandon Woodruff on the mound would get them back on track. It didn’t start well, as Woodruff walked Tommy Edman to begin the game. Edman then stole second, moved to third on a Paul...

Brewers can’t cool off Cardinals, fall 5-2

Not much offense against an aged STL starter.

Box Score

The St. Louis Cardinals came to Milwaukee as the hottest team in baseball, and not even the return of Willy Adames and a start from Freddy Peralta could cool down the Redbirds on Monday night. St. Louis got to work right away in the top of the first inning against Peralta. He struck out the first two batters of the game on seven total pitches, but then Tyler O’Neill struck a single back through the...

The Brewers welcome back their best offensive player.

The Milwaukee Brewers start a pivotal series against the rival St. Louis Cardinals tonight at American Family Field, and they will be welcoming back one of their most important offensive weapons just in time. Shortstop Willy Adames hasn’t played since September 4th while dealing with a biceps issue, but he has been activated and is in the lineup tonight against Jon Lester.

Game slips away over missed opportunities and late Chicago rally

A day of missed opportunities led the Brewers to a 4-6 loss to the Chicago Cubs to close out the I-94 showdown series.

The Crew loaded the bases or put the leadoff runner on in all but two innings. They left eleven stranded and went 2-11 with runners in scoring position. They threatened all day, but it was the Cubs who made the game-deciding rally in the eighth.
