Hello darkness, our old friend

When you get into late August, just about every stretch of games is The Most Important Of The Season for a team with playoff aspirations.

But for the Brewers, this next stretch of games probably actually is The Most Important Of The Season. A total of 13 of their next 18 games come against the Cubs and the Cardinals, the two teams ahead of them in the NL Central (and also the wildcard standings, if you figure only one team...

Lots of runs...except when there weren’t

Our Milwaukee Brewers scored 35 runs in five game this week. That’s seven runs a game. And it includes a game that they only scored one in. So in the other four they averaged 8.5 runs per game. They lost the one that they only scored a singleton in, which isn’t too surprising. But they only went 2-2 in the other four, because they allowed a whopping 10 plus runs in those...

Brewers’ pitchers allow 8 home runs as Nationals beat up on Milwaukee 16-8

Photo by Mitchell Layton/Getty Images Good news is the Brewers’ bullpen got a day of rest with a trip to St. Louis looming Over the past two games, the Washington Nationals have looked like one of the best hitting teams in all of baseball. Luckily the Brewers were able to hang with the Nationals’ offense and win last night. Today the Nationals tied a club record for home runs in a single game with 8. Chase Anderson and Aaron Wilkerson were the primary victims of the Washington assault....

A couple of fresh arms after an extra-inning affair last night.

After using 10 pitchers during last night’s 14-inning, 15-14 victory over the Washington Nationals, it was less a matter of “if” the Milwaukee Brewers would make a move for a fresh arm and more “how many.” We got our answer this morning as the team has recalled two hurlers from Triple-A San Antonio:

Brewers somehow beat Nationals 15-14 in seesawing slugfest that lasts 14 innings

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

If it wasn’t for Christian Yelich, we’d have nothing

The Milwaukee Brewers managed to slug out a 14-inning victory against the Washington Nationals, capturing game two 15-14.

The game was about nothing but offense. Milwaukee got the scoring underway when the team showed it can, in fact, hit with runners in scoring position. Christian Yelich went to the plate with the bases loaded and hit a one-out single in the top of the third to give the Brewers an...

Milwaukee Brewers have worked out Jung-ho Kang, but no deal yet

And hopefully one does not come.

The Pittsburgh Pirates released infielder Jung-ho Kang on August 4th, ending the Korean import’s stormy five-year tenure with the organization. Kang was signed to a four-year contract with an option back in 2015, becoming one of the first players to receive a notable guarantee from an MLB team after making a name for himself in the Korean Baseball Organization. Kang won MVP of the KBO in 2014 after hitting .356/.459/.739...

Today, Murray identified three long-term members of the department who were let go, one pro scout and two amateur scouts:

Brewers fail to cash in with runners on base, lose to Nationals 2-1

A well-pitched game undone by more RISP struggles.

Box Score

The Milwaukee Brewers out-hit the Washington Nationals, nine to three, in the series opener in the nation’s capital. But the Brew Crew’s struggles with runners in scoring position continued as the offense could put up only one run against Nats’ starter Patrick Corbin.

Lorenzo Cain recorded a base hit to lead off the game in the first, but was stranded. Orlando Arcia hit a solo home run...
