Inside Heat: Are The Brewers Winning Too Much?

Buster Olney talks to Tom Haudricourt of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about if the Brewers' hot start is actually ruining GM David Stearns' long term plans for the club.

Brewers OF Ryan Braun isn't in the starting lineup Wednesday vs. the Blue Jays. Braun has gone 0-for-8 since returning from the disabled list with a left calf strain on May 21.

Power Rankings: Brewers trending up

Riding their offense, the Brewers climb three spots to just outside the top 10. However, their secret weapon could be their new closer.

Revisiting preseason questions: Brewers

In mid-February, we wondered if Eric Thames was the real deal. His scorching month of April and patience at the plate put the question to bed rather quickly.

The Cubs flexed their defending champion muscle at the plate and on the hill Sunday, battering the first-place Brewers 13-6 at Wrigley Field. Kris Bryant reached base five times, scored four runs and homered twice for his ninth career multi-homer game. Meanwhile, things keep trending in the right direction for Jake Arrieta, who went six innings with six strikeouts. The only run he allowed was unearned. Milwaukee lost first baseman Eric Thames during the game because of leg cramping.

Brewers first baseman Eric Thames left today's game against the Cubs with leg cramping. During his last plate appearance, he grounded out to first on a flip from Anthony Rizzo to pitcher Jake Arrieta. It's unclear if the problem occurred while Thames was trying to leg that one out. Jesus Aguilar is now in the game as his replacement. Chicago leads the Brewers 6-1 behind three homers, including two from defending NL MVP Kris Bryant. It's Bryant's ninth career multi-homer game.

The Brewers weren't happy about Saturday's rainout against the Cubs. The game was called a couple of hours before first pitch, but then the rain stopped and stayed away all through a pleasant afternoon. "They told us that their weather forecast indicated our game was not going to be able to be played," Brewers GM David Stearns said. "Our weather forecast did not indicate that. Ultimately, it's the Cubs' call." The game will be made up on July 6. It's all fun and games for a budding rivalry, and provided a chance for Milwaukee's Craig Counsell to offer up the walk-off quote of the day, "It was the first time for us that we've had players treated for sunburn after a rainout."

The Milwaukee Brewers will welcome Ryan Braun back from the disabled list for today's game at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs. Braun has been out since May 10 with a calf strain. His injury apparently did not torpedo the Brewers' offense: Milwaukee has gone 7-2 in his absence. It's always a plus for the Brewers to have Braun in the lineup at Wrigley. He's got a .965 career OPS here in 68 games with 13 homers. No wonder Cubs fans boo him aggressively every time he comes to the plate. Milwaukee sent down pitcher Tyler Cravy to make room for Braun on the 25-man roster.

Rainout doesn't wash away Cubs' new-look lineup

Joe Maddon's lineup card switched Ben Zobrist to leadoff, bumping Kyle Schwarber down while keeping Ian Happ in the heart of the order. Will it work?

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs and Brewers will make up today's rainout on July 6 at 2:20 pm EST. Today's scheduled pitchers, Milwaukee's Chase Anderson and Chicago's Jake Arrieta, will both start tomorrow's game. As for all those fans who lineup in the rain at the gates for the Bryzzo bobblehead giveaway -- no word yet on when that promotion will be rescheduled.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs and Brewers will not play today's game at Wrigley Field because of day-long rainstorms in Chicago. No makeup date has been announced. There was evidence that the Cubs were poised to make a couple of roster moves. Jason Heyward was expected to be activated from the DL. Also, Triple-A pitcher Dylan Covey was in the clubhouse on Saturday morning. Conspicuously absent were Tommy LaStella and Pierce Johnson. However, with the washout, no official move was made.

The weirdest play in a weird game between the Cubs and Brewers occurred right before the rain delay. Chicago left fielder Kyle Schwarber chased a short fly all the way to the infield and dove through the mud, only to end up with a double error. Cubs manager Joe Maddon beseeches us not to blame Schwarber.
