Brewers keep Overbay, Reynolds; waive Francisco

By RICK SOLEM

The Milwaukee Brewers made a sort of baffling move in my opinion Monday.

They released Juan Francisco, electing to go with Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds at first base – Reynolds can also fill in for Aramis Ramirez at third when he’s inevitably injured.

A bumpy ride mostly, but a ride to the WIAA Division 2 state tournament all the same.

In the WIAA Division 4 state championship Saturday, junior Diamond Stone had 28 points, 11 rebounds and eight blocks in leading Whitefish Bay Dominican to a 74-50 win at the Kohl Center and its third consecutive state title.
