MINNEAPOLIS — The Milwaukee Brewers are making themselves at home on the road. Christian Yelich hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth, Josh Hader struck out six in 2 1/3 hitless innings of relief and the NL Central leaders beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 Saturday night. “It seems like it’s been somebody different every night,” Yelich said, “and that’s kind of what it takes to win on the road.” The Brewers are now 7-2 on a 10-game road trip with a
CINCINNATI — Wade Miley made a positive first impression in his debut with the Milwaukee Brewers. Miley pitched six effective innings, Christian Yelich homered and the Brewers swept the sloppy Cincinnati Reds with a 3-1 win on Wednesday night. “I would like to have been a little sharper, but the shutdown innings were huge,” said Miley, who retired his last seven batters. “I didn’t command the ball well inside. They were hitting it hard, but they were hitting it
CHICAGO — Jose Quintana was terrific for the Chicago Cubs, and pretty typical when it comes to his outings against the Milwaukee Brewers. Quintana pitched seven sharp innings to help Chicago beat Milwaukee 3-0 on Saturday and continue his dominance of the Cubs’ NL Central rival. “He had a good look from the beginning,” manager Joe Maddon said. “He was ready to roll, and that’s what he’s capable of looking like.” Quintana (3-1) allowed two
MILWAUKEE — Jeremy Jeffress entered the game in a tough situation and went into beast mode. Christian Yelich hit his first homer since returning from the disabled list, Junior Guerra worked five innings, and Jeffress and two other relievers did the rest for the Milwaukee Brewers in a 4-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday. Milwaukee completed a four-game sweep of Miami and has won six straight overall, its longest winning streak since 2015. Guerra (2-0) allowed an unearned run on
MILWAUKEE — Christian Yelich quickly made an impact in his return from the disabled list. The Milwaukee center fielder made a snazzy sliding catch on a fly ball that deflected off the glove of left fielder Hernan Perez, and the Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 on Wednesday. “I thought they really went at it the right way with one guy sliding,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “They weren’t going to run into each other.” Yelich, Perez and shortstop
MILWAUKEE — Eric Thames hit a two-run homer to back a three-hitter from Junior Guerra and three relievers, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers over the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 on Tuesday night. Reds starter Sal Romano (0-2) had a two-hit shutout going before Lorenzo Cain walked and Thames sent the first pitch he saw over the wall in right for his team-leading sixth home run. Thames was back in the lineup after leaving Sunday’s game with a left groin strain and sitting Monday. Guerra
MILWAUKEE — With four of their first five wins coming in their final at-bat, the Milwaukee Brewers had established one thing this season. “The ninth inning,” third baseman Travis Shaw said Friday night, “is our inning.” Well, that didn’t last long. One day after shortstop Orlando Arcia’s walk-off single beat the Chicago Cubs on Friday night at Miller Park, the Brewers surrendered their claim to the ninth inning with some hideous infield defense.
MILWAUKEE — After a rocky start, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon thinks Ian Happ finally can relax a little bit. Happ hit a tiebreaking two-run single during Chicago’s four-run ninth, helping the Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 on Saturday. “Whatever he’s going to have tonight dinner dinner-wise is going to taste better, sleep is going to be much more tranquil and if he had a dog with him on the road he’s going to love his puppy even more,” Maddon said.
