  2. Grand Central stretch for Brew Crew
    Given the marathon nature of Major League Baseball, one could see this coming, since the 2014 schedule was released more than a year ago. One way or another, either as a postseason contender or playing spoiler, the Brewers' 10-day, nine-game swing through St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati would be packed with meaningful games.
  3. Clark capitalizing on chances, aiding Crew's playoff push
    Mired in the Mets' organization at the Double-A level at midseason, Matt Clark hardly expected to find himself in the middle of a playoff push, much less be a significant contributor. But Clark is making the most of his late-season opportunity with the Brewers.
  4. Brewers pound Reds, keep pace in Wild Card race
    Matt Garza continued his dominance of the Reds and late-season callup Matt Clark belted his third home run in five days to pace the Brewers to a 9-2 victory Sunday as Milwaukee kept pace for the second NL Wild Card spot. The Brewers remained 1 1/2 games behind the Pirates and five back of the NL Central-leading Cardinals.

    With one out in the ninth inning and a runner on first base Sunday, Reds pinch-hitter Donald Lutz reached on an infield single, beating the toss from Brewers first baseman Mark Reynolds to pitcher Rob Wooten, who was covering.

  7. Sellout crowd at Miller Park gets bobblehead with loss
    At least most of the 45,205 in attendance got their Hank the Dog bobblehead. The doll became the consolation prize at Miller Park Saturday night. This may not have been the original intention, but it was the actual result.
  8. Crew musters just two hits, stalling playoff climb
    Reds rookie David Holmberg, who entered the game with an 8.25 ERA, held the Brewers to just two hits over six innings, and Yovani Gallardo's bout of wildness helped the Reds to a 5-1 victory on Saturday night.

  9. Key connections: Star-Spangled Banner, baseball forever linked
    The celebration of the 200th anniversary of our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner," is on, as Francis Scott Key's memory is honored for his poetic description of the "dawn's early light" of Sept. 14, 1814, at the height of the War of 1812. With that in mind, two centuries later, we go around the horn with nine things to know about the song that is now eternally connected to the Grand Old Game.
  10. Catching prospect Coulter could be tried at other positions

  13. Brewers reach out to Marlins, look to move on from incident
    Brewers manager Ron Roenicke and pitcher Mike Fiers reiterated Friday that the pitch that hit slugger Giancarlo Stanton and caused severe facial injuries to the Marlins star was an accident, and both of them have tried to get in touch with Miami manager Mike Redmond.
  14. DeSclafani suspended 3 games; Fiers fined for incident
    Marlins pitcher Anthony DeSclafani has received a three-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing a pitch at Carlos Gomez of the Brewers, with a warning in place, in the bottom of the sixth inning of Thursday's game at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
  15. As tempers cool, Fish, Crew show concern for Stanton
    Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers fought tears from the moment he began discussing the 88-mph fastball that sailed high and tight, striking Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton on his left cheekbone.

Stanton remained hospitalized in Milwaukee overnight.

  18. Awful accident quickly escalates
    Three things stemming from Thursday's Marlins-Brewers contest are clear: Everyone hopes for a full recovery for Miami's Giancarlo Stanton, there's no way Milwaukee's Mike Fiers intentionally hit him with a pitch and, thirdly, the game got crazy after that.
  19. Davis downplays forearm issue, but power lacking
    A sore right forearm might help explain Brewers left fielder Khris Davis' recent drop in power production. Manager Ron Roenicke said he needed to give the 26-year-old Davis a day off Thursday in an effort to have the slugger come back strong for the team's remaining 15 regular-season games.
  20. Out call stands on close play at the plate in Milwaukee
    After becoming the third player in Brewers history to hit 50 doubles in a season, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was cut down at home plate to end the first inning against the Marlins on Wednesday night, as umpires ruled after review that that the play would stand as called.
