Brewers fall after K-Rod blows first save

Joey Votto delivered a two-run home run in a four-run top of the ninth inning that pushed the Reds ahead for an 12-9 win over the Brewers on a wild Saturday night at Miller Park.

Peralta looks to bounce back in series finale

Coming off his shortest start since May of 2013, Wily Peralta will look to bounce back on Sunday at Miller Park against the Cincinnati Reds.

Kirby likely to undergo Tommy John surgery

Brewers pitching prospect Nathan Kirby is likely headed for Tommy John surgery, according to general manager Doug Melvin.

Clark goes 4-for-4 in rain-shortened five-inning victory

Brewers No. 3 prospect Trent Clark went 4-for-4 with three RBIs as Rookie Level Helena defeated Missoula, 8-2. The first-rounder is now 6-for-7 (.857) after receiving a promotion from the Arizona League. All six of his hits have been singles, which is on par with his work for the AZL Brewers.

Santana, Jungmann star for new-look Brewers

A 5-0 win over the Reds was fueled by two members of the Brewers' youth movement. Domingo Santana introduced himself to the Miller Park faithful with a home run in his home debut, and Taylor Jungmann continued a first impression that began with his call-up in June.

Jungmann, Brewers bullpen shut out Reds

Domingo Santana homered in his Miller Park debut and Taylor Jungmann delivered a quality start in the Brewers' 5-0 win over the Reds on Friday.

Garza looks to get on track against Reds

Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is badly in need of a good night at the plate while Brewers starter Matt Garza could equally welcome a positive game on the mound. Even based on small sample sizes, Saturday's meeting of the two teams at Miller Park could be to Bruce's benefit.

Perez sees playing time slip at third base

Hernan Perez was on the cover of the game day program distributed at Miller Park on Friday, but not on the field for the start of the game itself.
