  1. Brewers stay positive in face of dismal numbers
    The early-season stats are ugly for the Brewers, who have struggled to score, pitch and stay healthy on the way to the worst start in franchise history.
  2. Brewers seeking offensive punch behind Fiers
    The Reds, who broke out with two home runs in a 6-1 series-opening win, have scored 43 runs in 13 games. The Brewers, who have lost six in a row, have scored a Majors-low 31 runs in 13 games. Milwaukee also lost All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy to the DL with a fractured toe on Monday.
  3. Braun's first homer not enough on painful night
    Zack Cozart and Joey Votto homered, and Anthony DeSclafani pitched an eight-inning gem to give the Reds a 6-1 win Monday night over the Brewers. Ryan Braun connected on his first home run of the season in the ninth inning for Milwaukee.
  4. Brewers send Lucroy to DL with fractured toe

  5. Gomez takes BP, aiming for minimum stay on DL
    Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez took swings in the batting cage Monday and expressed hope this stint on the disabled list will expire after the minimum 15 days. Gomez was placed on the DL retroactive to Wednesday with a right hamstring injury and is eligible to return May 1.

  7. Garza can't stop skid as Brewers swept by Pirates
    Gerrit Cole permitted two runs in six innings and Pedro Alvarez hit a go-ahead home run on Sunday, as the Pirates completed a series sweep of Milwaukee with a 5-2 win that consigned the Brewers to the worst season start in franchise history.
  8. Garza says things are shaping up, though results haven't come
    Matt Garza was a few outs away from putting together a much-needed quality start for the Brewers on Sunday, so close to keeping them within striking distance as they looked to avoid being swept by the Pirates.
  9. Brewers refusing to panic over rough start to season
    There was no sense of panic in Ron Roenicke's voice as he sat in the visiting manager's office Sunday afternoon at PNC Park. But there was clearly some urgency.
  10. Roenicke, Brewers at loss for lack of power
    Manager Ron Roenicke expected the Brewers to go through a slump at some point. Every team does, and some skids stand out more based on when they occur during the season. That's probably the case for Milwaukee. But what Roenicke didn't expect is the Brewers' complete lack of power so far this season.
  11. Control issues spell trouble for Lohse
    Kyle Lohse found himself unable to find the strike zone in a few key moments during Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Pirates at PNC Park.
  12. Brewers juggle lineup, but scoring woes continue in loss

    The Brewers' early season skid continued in a familiar way in Saturday night's 6-2 loss to the Pirates at PNC Park.

    Ryan Braun walked into PNC Park on Saturday and found his name in an unfamiliar spot: atop the lineup card.
  15. Nelson solid again vs. Bucs before being pulled
    Last time out, Jimmy Nelson befuddled the Pirates for seven scoreless innings. The Pirates quickly got a rematch with Nelson Friday night at PNC Park. This time around, a few mistakes on his part and the Brewers' continued difficulty scoring runs led to a 6-3 loss.
  16. Brewers still stranding too many runners
    The at-bats were better, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. Unfortunately, the results were mostly the same Friday night.
  17. Brewers place Gomez on DL, recall Rogers
    The Brewers placed center fielder Carlos Gomez on the disabled list Friday with a strained right hamstring and called up utility man Jason Rogers from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take his roster spot.
  18. Henderson to start rehab stint for shoulder
    Brewers reliever Jim Henderson began a Minor League rehab assignment with Class A Advanced Brevard County on Friday night.
  19. Fiers fades in sixth, offense lacks clutch hit
    John Lackey and Mike Fiers locked up in a scoreless duel into the sixth inning before the Cardinals broke through for a 4-0 victory and a series win over the Brewers on Thursday at Busch Stadium. Lackey wound up working seven shutout innings, striking out eight.
  20. Stone cold brewery: Bats silent in the clutch
    Despite watching the Brewers struggle to score runs since Opening Day, manager Ron Roenicke is not yet ready to start changing things up in the lineup.
