The Brewers led the National League Central for 159 straight days, but they could fall all the way back to third place by dinner time on Sunday evening. Lance Lynn did a fine job of damage control for six innings and Matt Adams and Oscar Taveras both homered off Kyle Lohse as the Cardinals took down host Milwaukee 5-3 on Saturday night at Miller Park, moving to four games up in the division standings.

Kyle Lohse was dealing with a sore right ankle, but is expected to rejoin the Brewers’ rotation on Monday to start against the Padres.

Kyle Lohse left his start against the Cubs on Wednesday after he aggravated a right ankle sprain and the Brewers will skip his next turn in the rotation in order to give him some rest.

Seemingly always injured, Hanley Ramirez is out of Saturday’s lineup after experiencing tightness in his right side prior to Friday’s game against the Brewers.

A quick recap of a busy Friday around MLB, including the first game of a big weekend series between the Brewers and Cardinals.
Aug 1, 2014, 7:59 PM EDT
The Brewers have scratched rookie right-hander Jimmy Nelson from Saturday’s start, but it mostly looks like a convenient excuse to manipulate their rotation this weekend.

Six shutouts on Sunday afternoon. So don’t worry if you think you wasted your day because 20% of all major league teams didn’t get much done yesterday either.

Ruben Tejada shocked the baseball world by homering on Saturday against the Phillies.

Well, that’s something you don’t see every day.

It’s way early, but the Brewers sure look good. Star center fielder Carlos Gomez hit his fourth home run of the season, staff ace Yovani Gallardo put together his third straight quality start, and closer Francisco Rodriguez earned his fourth save in as many chances as the Brew Crew topped the Pirates 3-2 on Saturday night at a sold-out Miller Park.

Yesterday, Brewers starter Kyle Lohse criticized the qualifying offer system. Lohse rejected a $13.3 million qualifying offer from the Cardinals after the 2012 season, hoping to get a lucrative deal in free agency. He ended up jobless well into march until the Brewers jumped in and signed him to a three-year, $33 million deal. This…

Deep into the off-season, Ubaldo Jimenez, Nelson Cruz, Stephen Drew, Ervin Santana, and Kendrys Morales were still free agents despite being productive players last season. Jimenez and Cruz recently signed with the Orioles, but the latter three still remain unsigned with the regular season just weeks away. All five rejected $14.1 million qualifying offers from…

The latest on Matt Garza is that there’s nothing new to report. The Brewers and Garza reportedly agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract on Thursday, but the team later announced that negotiations were ongoing and that no deal had been reached. The announcement was rather odd, especially when coupled with the news that he…

Attached to draft pick compensation, right-hander Kyle Lohse waited out the entire winter before eventually landing a three-year, $33 million contract from the Brewers in March. A Scott Boras client, he was reportedly aiming for a three-year, $45 million deal at the start of the offseason, but his market was severely limited due to the…

If a team gives a departing free agent a “qualifying offer,” the team that ultimately signs the free agent loses a first or second round pick. The draft pick component of it all can depress the value of a free agent on the market who rejects said offer. Just ask Kyle Lohse how that worked…

Scott Diamond defeated the White Sox on Wednesday without recording a single strikeout in 6 1/3 innings. And that’s fairly unusual, if hardly unique. He’s the sixth starter this year to win a game without striking out a batter, joining Jeff Locke, Jeremy Guthrie, Jake Westbrook, Kyle Lohse and Joe Kelly. What is far more…

It’s old news that right-hander Kyle Lohse was claimed on waivers and then pulled back without a trade, but it wasn’t known who tried to pluck him away from the Brewers. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal revealed today that it was the Braves who made the claim. Lohse would have been pretty much the perfect replacement for…

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Brewers placed Kyle Lohse on waivers and then pulled him back when he was claimed, meaning they won’t be trading him. Milwaukee likely asked a lot for Lohse, because a) he’s pitching well, b) he’s signed for two more seasons, and c) it cost the 17th overall pick…

Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

The Marlins arrived in Milwaukee to open up the second half after showing some signs of competence in June and early July. They were 15-41 after a June 1 victory, won 20 of their next 37 games, and went into the All-Star break 35-58. However, they dropped last night’s game against the Brewers 2-0, and…

Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…
