Chase Anderson pitches seven no-hit innings, Brewers offense backs him up in 6-1 win

Chase Anderson collected eleven strikeouts and took a no-hitter into the eighth as the Brewers scored five runs off of Zack Greinke.

WP: Chase Anderson (3-1)
LP: Zack Greinke (6-3)

HR: Jesus Aguilar (4)

Box Score

After five straight losses, this one didn’t look good coming in as the Brewers had to face Diamondbacks ace Zack Greinke. However, it was Chase Anderson who looked like the ace today.

The game started as a pitcher’s duel today. After walking two to start the game, Chase Anderson...

It’s not even June, but the San Francisco Giants are probably screwed

After a 2-0 loss at home to the Atlanta Braves on Friday night, the San Francisco Giants now have a record of 20-30, good for the fourth-worst record in MLB. They’re better than that, and will likely soon play better than that.The Colorado Rockies (32-18) and Arizona Diamondbacks (31-19) are owners of the top two records in the National League. While they appear to be legitimately good teams, they’re almost surely worse than their current records say, and will likely soon play worse...

Milwaukee Brewers lose it in extras to the Diamondbacks 4-2

The losing streak is destined to continue.

WP: T.J. McFarland
LP: Wily Peralta
SV: Fernando Rodney

HR: Jake Lamb (14), Jett Bandy (6), Chris Iannetta (5)

Box Score

Everyone thought Wily Peralta would stop being a constant rain cloud over the Milwaukee Brewers when he was sent to hide in the bullpen. It turns out, he can still ruin everything in the bullpen just as well as he proved tonight in a ten-inning loss.

Putting Wily Peralta aside for a moment, there were a decent amount of positives in...

Milwaukee Brewers activate Junior Guerra, officially DL Ryan Braun

With Braun back on the disabled list, the Brewers will play short in the outfield -- at least for now

It wasn’t long after Thursday night’s game that it became clear Ryan Braun would have to go back on the disabled list after re-aggravating his left calf injury. The only question was who would be taking his spot on the roster today.

With Junior Guerra set to return from his own calf injury tonight, the Brewers made the easy move for now, swapping the two on the 25-man roster.

The Brewers’ series opener against Arizona was a costly one in terms of injuries

This was not the way the Milwaukee Brewers wanted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Ryan Braun’s debut in the majors.

The Brewers were forced to pinch-hit for Braun in the 4th inning Thursday night after re-aggravating his left calf injury. It was originally announced as just calf soreness, but after the game, Adam McCalvy reported that the injury would mean a return trip to the disabled list. This time,...
