Cardinals crush Brewers in series finale, 8-2

A rough day for Jhoulys Chacin.

Box Score

I was at Kettle Moraine Days this afternoon with my family, so I didn’t get a chance to watch this one. After perusing the box score, I’ve concluded that was probably a good thing.

Jhoulys Chacin has been money for the Milwaukee Brewers for most of the season, but today was not included. He lasted only 4.1 innings in the series finale against St. Louis, issuing a season-high five walks while coughing up eight earned runs. Chacin battled his...

Chacin allows 8 runs as Brewers drop finale

Sunday Sundries: Milwaukee Brewers Week 13 in Review

Looking for more winning after another 3-3 week

Thanks to the cooperation of the rest of the NL Central division, a 3-3 week for the Brewers resulted in the Chicago Cubs falling 1 1?2 games further behind the first base Milwaukee Nine this week, to two games back overall. The Cardinals stayed in third and lost another half game of ground, now 5 1?2 back. Just think how good things would look if Milwaukee were winning every close game. Is that so unreasonable?

Unlike earlier in the season,...

Late chance missed in Brewers 3-2 loss to Cardinals

Miles Mikolas shuts down Brewer bats

WP: Miles Mikolas (8-2); LP: Jeremy Jeffress (5-1); Save: Bud Norris (14); Home runs: StL: Yadier Molina, 2 (11); Mil - none

Just another box score

The Milwaukee Brewers (45-31) couldn’t wake their bats up in the late innings and overcome a Cardinals one run lead like they did last night, as St. Louis Cardinals’ (39-36) starter Miles Mikolas righted the ship after a rough first inning and totally shut the Brewer bats down en route to a 3-2 late...

Milwaukee Brewers option Domingo Santana, recall Brad Miller

It’s been a precipitous fall for the team’s best offensive player in 2017.

Orlando Arcia continues to struggle at the plate for the Milwaukee Brewers, and after his 0-for-2 last night his slash stands at .201/.234/.259 through 197 plate appearances. There are 220 players in the majors who have got to the plate at least 190 teams this season, including Arcia; among that group, only Kole Calhoun (18 wRC+) and Chris Davis (28 wRC+) have been worse offensive players than Arcia (30 wRC+) in...

Brewers demote Domingo Santana to Triple-A

A season after he broke out and became one of baseball’s most productive outfielders, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Domingo Santana now finds himself headed back to the minor leagues. The 25-year-old broke out in 2017 in his second full season with Milwaukee. Across 151 games, Santana hit 30 home runs with 29 doubles, 85 RBI and an .876 OPS.While he fell short of making the All-Star team, he seemed to be a key piece of Milwaukee’s future.Then things changed rapidly for Santana.

Brewers send Santana to Triple-A, recall Miller

With a crowded outfield since Eric Thames' return from left thumb surgery earlier in June, the Brewers optioned right fielder Domingo Santana to Triple-A Colorado Springs and added some infield depth on Saturday morning. The Brewers called up shortstop Brad Miller from Colorado Springs in a corresponding move.

BCB Mailbag 48: Deadline musings

Answering the burning questions from you, the reader.

What a game last night, eh? Jesus Aguilar has really been something else this year. I was at the game with a couple of friends and my buddy Joey (a former pro soccer player in Europe and South America) totally called the walk-off blast in the ninth inning. Thanks for saving Junior from another hard-luck loss!

Jesus Aguilar’s two home runs give Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 walkoff win over Cardinals

Aguilar ties the game in the seventh then wins it in the ninth.

The Brewers offense struggled tonight. They managed just three hits in the game. Two of those came from Jesus Aguilar.

It was a good thing that he maximized those two hits.

The Cardinals pitching had their way with the Brewers offense for the most part tonight. Out of 32 Brewers batters faced, they striked out 15 of them. Thirteen of those strikeouts came from starter Jack Flaherty, who pitched seven shutout innings in the game....

Jesus Aguilar hit a home run to break up a no-hitter and a walk-off homer in the same game

Jesus Aguilar entered the season as the Milwaukee Brewers’ backup first baseman, essentially platooning with Eric Thames. But Thames suffered a torn UCL in his left thumb, which opened up more playing time for Aguilar. The 27-year-old (28 on June 30) has taken advantage of the opportunity, and then some. Aguilar has 16 homers and a .305/.366/.609 slash line (his .975 OPS ranks seventh in MLB of hitters with at least 200 plate appearances). And two homers Aguilar hit on Friday night were...

Anderson allowed a season-high six runs on only five hits in 5 1/3 innings of a loss to the Phillies on Sunday. Right-hander Miles Mikolas (7-2, 2.69) will start for the Cardinals.
