NEWS AND NOTES
The Brewers have maintained their steady lead in the NL Central but suffered a few painful losses last week. The offense has struggled in games they’ve lost, with their runs coming in bunches last week. Particularly, the Brewers could not score through 9 innings while the pitching staff did more than their part, holding the Yankees hitless into the 11th inning. The Brewers would end up losing that game 4-3.
The recent acquisition of Josh Donaldson is likely weighing on the Brewers' minds, and his call-up seems imminent with the inconsistent offense. Don’t be surprised if Donaldson debuts for the Brewers sometime next week. Here’s the list of the other transactions last week:
- 09/06/23 - Selected the contract of RHP Thyago Vieira from Nashville Sounds.
- 09/06/23 - Optioned LHP Clayton Andrews to Nashville Sounds.
- 09/02/23 - Sent LHP Aaron Ashby on a rehab assignment to Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
- 09/02/23 - Optioned RHP J.B. Bukauskas to Nashville Sounds.
- 09/02/23 - Recalled RHP Colin Rea from Nashville Sounds.
Corbin Burnes, Devin Williams, and Abner Uribe combined for ten no-hit innings in the loss to the Yankees on Sunday. It was the first time a Brewers pitching staff had recorded more than nine innings of no-hit baseball.
The Brewers offense, while inconsistent, recorded 16 hits in the victory over the Yankees on Friday. It was the third time they’ve recorded that many hits in a single game this season.
Willy Adames had the chance to meet his childhood idol, Derek Jeter, when the Brewers were in New York. He then proceeded to record a little league home run later in the day. Who said you shouldn’t meet your idols?
TRENDING STORYLINE/LOOKING AHEAD
The Brewers will continue to face teams with worse records than they boast the rest of the season, and with a three-game lead in the division, the playoff hopes remain solely in their hands.
