6/22 – 6/28 Brewers Week In Review

June 29, 2015


Mets at Brewers

The Brewers observed a moment of silence in honor of Darryl Hamilton, who was killed on June 21. Hamilton played for both the Brewers (1988, 1990-1995) and the Mets (1999-2001) as well as the Rangers, Giants, and Rockies. Carlos Gomez was back in the lineup, batting cleanup. Brewers win 3-2. Francisco Rodriguez is 14 for 14 in save opportunities this season.

Jimmy Nelson went 8 innings, giving up just 1 run on 2 hits and a walk while striking out 5. K-Rod converted his 15th save of the season. Ryan Braun went 2 for 4 with an RBI and run scored and Adam Lind went 2 for 3 with an RBI. Scooter Gennett hit a home run in the 6th to provide an insurance run in the Brewers 4-1 victory.

The Brewers once again failed to complete the sweep. Jason DeGrom held the Brewers scoreless in 8 innings. Taylor Jungmann pitched out of trouble all game, going 5 scoreless innings. Michael Blazek gave up a run in the 6th and Jonathan Broxton gave up another in the 7th. That was all of the scoring in a 2-0 loss by the Brewers.

Twins at Brewers

Paul Molitor received a large ovation as he was announced as the Twins manager in his return to Milwaukee. Kyle Lohse gave up the 18th home run of the season to lead off the game, then gave up another in the 6th. He has allowed at least one home run in 16 of his 18 starts this season. Gerardo Parra hit his own leadoff home run in the bottom of the first. Jonathan Lucroy followed that with a double and scored on a single by Braun. Twins starter out after a third of an inning, giving up 6 runs. Brewers score 4 more in the 2nd. Aramis Ramirez hit a 2-run home run, giving him 1342 RBIs as a 3rd baseman, 3rd all time behind Mike Schmidt and Brooks Robinson. Lind got his 1000th hit in the 4th. The Brewers cruised to a 10-4 win. Lohse became the 14th pitcher to beat all 30 MLB teams.

Matt Garza was cruising along until the 5th inning in game 2 of the series. He got to 2-strike counts on the first 3 batters, but could not get any of them out. Torii Hunter doubled, Chris Hermann walked, and Eduardo Escobar hit a 3-run home run. Hunter added solo home runs in the 6th and 9th innings in a 5-2 Twins victory. The loss was Garza’s 10th of the season.

Mike Fiers pitched 7 innings of 1 run baseball in the series finale. The game was tied in the 8th inning until Braun and Lind each hit 2-run home runs to give the Brewers a 5-1 lead. K-Rod made things interesting by giving up a 2-run home run to Hunter, but that was it in a 5-3 Brewer victory.

Roster/Injury News

Carlos Gomez returned to the lineup on Tuesday. Gomez was out of the starting lineup on Thursday, but came in during a double switch.

Khris Davis took batting practice before the game on Wednesday and ran the bases over the weekend. He will probably be sent on a rehab assignment soon.

Wily Peralta has been out since May 22 with an oblique strain. Peralta has been throwing long toss and playing catch, but he has not yet thrown off the mound. He was originally expected to miss 4-6 weeks, but that is going to be extended. He needs to throw off the mound, then build up his pitch count on a rehab assignment, which could take a couple of weeks.
