The Brewers took advantage of a stellar night of pitching and three solo homers to get back on track in San Diego in the late hours of the night. Brandon Woodruff was fantastic, and he out-dueled Joe Musgrove despite the 13 strikeouts produced by the latter. The bullpen – run by JP Feyereisen, Brent Suter, and Josh Hader, took care of their business tonight too, and all the Crew needed were the runs produced by Luis Urias, Billy McKinney, and Tyrone Taylor. Milwaukee is now 9-7, and they moved within half a game of the idle Reds at the top…

With Giannis Antetokounmpo sidelined with a knee injury and various other players nursing short-term ailments, the Bucks have found themselves in a bit of a rut. They’ve lost three in a row, a streak that started with a game they blew late in Golden State, continued on to a loss to the Mavs after a 17-36 fourth quarter, and finished with a defeat to the Hornets that saw the Bucks down 19 after three quarters. Giannis likely won’t play tonight either, but Milwaukee should have most of the remaining roster available for the trip down to Orlando, where a struggling…

Milwaukee Brewers (3-3) @ St Louis Cardinals (4-2) After this season’s first road series against a NL Central rival, the Brewers are diving right back in for seconds this weekend when they take on the Cardinals in St Louis. Both teams have some momentum after losing two of three in their opening series. The Brewers took the last two from the Cubs in Wrigley while the Cardinals closed a sweep of the Marlins with a 7-0 shutout. The first game is tonight (Thursday), and we get a day off before the series closes on Saturday and Sunday. This should be…

The Brewers and Cubs played for the series today at Wrigley Field, and, as we’ve come to expect so far this season, we got a pitchers’ duel. Brandon Woodruff was fantastic in seven very efficient innings, and he carried a no-hitter into that seventh frame. Kyle Hendricks wasn’t quite as impressive, but he still kept the Brewers off the board in six scoreless innings of his own. The game needed an offensive hero, and Lorenzo Cain was the man for the job. He homered in the top of the eighth to give the Brewers a 1-0 lead, and he drove…

After a 12-2 run that covered both sides of the All-Star Break, the Bucks have lost three in a row to fall 2.5 games back of both the Nets and Sixers at the top of the East. Uninspiring losses to the Celtics and Clippers – the latter seeing Milwaukee outscored by 36 over the last three quarters – have led to a significant dampening of the mood around this team. It doesn’t get easier from here either with the Lakers, Trail Blazers, and Mavs headlining the remaining five games of this Western Conference road trip. The good news is that…

There hasn’t been much to complain about behind the backstop for the Brewers in recent years. According to Fangraphs, Milwaukee’s primary catcher has ranked in the top 20 among all MLB catchers in WAR in every season since (and including) 2010. That’s about a decade of solid production, and there have been plenty of elite seasons from Jonathan Lucroy and Yasmani Grandal mixed in along the way. There’s no prime Lucroy or Grandal putting on the catcher’s mitt this time around, but Manny Piña, the man behind three of those top-twenty seasons, and Omar Narváez headline a deep group of…

The Bucks saw their eight-game winning streak come to an abrupt and unimpressive end in last night’s loss to the Celtics. The game was all but over after Milwaukee allowed Boston to score 43 points in the third quarter and push their lead to 14 points. Boston’s top four scorers (Tatum, Walker, Smart, Brown) outscored Milwaukee’s top four (Middleton, Holiday, Antetokounmpo, Merrill) 96-67, and that tells you just about all you need to know. The good thing about the NBA is that the games don’t stop coming. Single games matter very little, and the Bucks are still 12-2 in their…

The Bucks are rolling after five straight wins and ten wins in their last eleven games, and they pulled out a very impressive comeback win in Philadelphia last time out despite managing the fourth-lowest first half scoring total of any NBA team this season. To keep the momentum going tonight, they’ll need to take down the San Antonio Spurs, who have returned to their normal spot in the playoff bracket after a bit of a down year in 2020. Let’s get ready for the game.  FAST FACTS The Game: San Antonio Spurs (22-16) @ Milwaukee Bucks (26-14)  The Place: Milwaukee,…

The Bucks came out of the All-Star Break strong with a demolition of the Knicks on Thursday night. It was their seventh win in eight tries. Tonight, they kick off a two-game series against the Wizards in Washington with the second game coming on Monday. Milwaukee will look to keep pace with both the Sixers and the Nets at the top of the East. Let’s take a look at some things to know and watch for tonight.

The Bucks will aim for their fourth win in a row when they host the New Orleans Pelicans tonight. The good guys are up to 19-13 after home wins over the Thunder, Kings, and Timberwolves. While stiffer tests await when the Clippers and Nuggets come to town over the next fews days, the Bucks can only worry about the team in front of them tonight. That would be the 14-17 Pelicans. Unfortunately, they will likely have to beat Jrue Holiday’s former team without him, as Holiday is set to miss his tenth consecutive game despite signs of an impending return. This…
