Shaw, Lauer lead Brewers past Bauer, Dodgers 2-1

Travis Shaw hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning off Trevor Bauer, Eric Lauer won in his first start of the campaign and the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Thursday night. It was the first meeting of the two teams since the first round of last year’s NL playoffs, a two-game sweep by the World Series champion Dodgers. Bauer (3-1) permitted four hits, but the one that hurt was Shaw’s in the fourth.

MRI on Milwaukee Brewers star Christian Yelich’s back shows no major issues

The Milwaukee Brewers are moving along with their plan for Christian Yelich after an MRI on the slugger’s strained lower back showed no major issues. Yelich hasn’t played since April 11. He was eligible to come off the injured list this weekend, but the 2018 NL MVP was sent back to Milwaukee because manager Craig Counsell stated Yelich had hit a “plateau” in his recovery. “We basically just ruled out anything significant structurally that would show up on the MRI,” Counsell said before Sunday’s series finale versus the Cubs. “We still need to make progress to get him back on the field and so […]

Bullpen shines as Padres blank Rangers for 3-game sweep

Trent Grisham and Manny Machado homered, Craig Stammen led a parade of six effective San Diego relievers after starter Adrian Morejon left early with an injury, and the Padres beat the Texas Rangers 2-0 on Sunday for a three-game sweep.
