MILWAUKEE — A.J. Ramos walked consecutive batters to force in the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning, handing the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night. Ramos relieved Jerry Blevins with runners at first and third, walked Hernan Perez on four pitches then skipped his 3-1 pitch to Travis Shaw to end it. That scored Eric Sogard, who singled with one out off Robert Gsellman (4-1) to spark the rally and snap an 0-for-28 skid. Sogard, newly
MILWAUKEE — Brandon Nimmo is making a strong case to remain in the New York Mets' everyday lineup. Nimmo reached base five times, Steven Matz pitched six solid innings and the Mets beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-0 on Thursday night. Nimmo raised his on-base percentage to .450, best in the majors among players with at least 100 plate appearances, with a career-high four hits and a walk. The 25-year-old outfielder had a triple and two doubles, and he has reached base eight consecutive times.
MINNEAPOLIS — Logan Morrison came through with a big hit for the injury-decimated Minnesota Twins lineup. Morrison’s two-run single gave Minnesota’s offense a much-needed lift, and four relievers worked 3 1/3 scoreless innings in a 3-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday. The Twins salvaged the final game of the series, snapping a three-game skid with a roster missing four of its expected starters when spring training began. Joe Mauer was placed on the disabled
MINNEAPOLIS — With Ryan Braun and Eric Thames on the disabled list, the Milwaukee Brewers are missing plenty of power in the middle of their lineup. Jesus Aguilar is proving to be quite the fill-in slugger. Aguilar homered twice and Ji-Man Choi hit a solo home run in his return to the majors as Milwaukee beat the Minnesota Twins 8-3 on Friday night. “It’s the power, for sure,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said of Aguilar. “It’s just kind of hit ability.
PHOENIX — First Milwaukee took three of four in Colorado. Now the Brewers have won two of three in Arizona. A trip to the usual NL West trouble spots turned out nicely indeed for Milwaukee. Travis Shaw, Domingo Santana, Christian Yelich and Tyler Saladino homered in the first four innings off Matt Koch, and the Brewers routed the Diamondbacks 8-2 in the series finale on Wednesday. “We had four homers and I thought we had some near-misses too,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell
PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks’ offense remains in something of a slumber. Strong pitching and one timely hit was enough to end their six-game losing streak. Daniel Descalso singled home Jarrod Dyson with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Diamondbacks beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Tuesday night. The Diamondbacks opened the game with the worst batting average in the majors (.223) and learned earlier in the day they had lost A.J. Pollock for four-to-eight weeks with a
DENVER — Kyle Freeland pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Trevor Story homered twice and doubled to drive in Colorado’s runs, and the Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0 Saturday night. Freeland (3-4) kept the Brewers in check the night after they had battered Rockies’ pitchers in an 11-10 win in 10 innings. He gave up four hits in 6 1/3 innings, striking out six and walking four while helping Colorado snap a three-game losing streak. Story put together
CINCINNATI (AP) — A resurgent night for the Brewers’ struggling offense ended with the bullpen stealing the show again. Ryan Braun’s two-run double put Milwaukee ahead to stay, and Jeremy Jeffress escaped a two-on, one-out threat in the eighth by fanning Joey Votto, preserving a 7-6 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. One day after Josh Hader set a major league record by fanning eight Reds in less than three innings to close out a 6-5 win, Jeffress came into
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
CHICAGO — Yu Darvish pitched up to the Chicago Cubs’ expectations. The $126 million free agent addition bounced back from a pair of poor outings to allow only an unearned run over six innings in a 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field. Addison Russell scored the go-ahead run on shortstop Eric Sogard’s seventh-inning error. Milwaukee lost its second straight one-run game to the Cubs on a chilly, windy day. The Brewers arrived in Chicago with
