Welcome to the 10th episode of the Brew Crew Fever Podcast. This week I go over the Cardinal and Pirate series, Matt Garza’s return, injury updates, and I field some questions form listeners.
The Brewers started the week by blowing another 4-run lead, but they ended up winning the series against the Cardinals for the first time in 3 years. They lost the first 2 games of the Pirate series, but Jesus Aguilar got his first MLB home run and Eric Thames found his home run stroke.
Matt Garza has been getting better in each of his 3 starts since coming off the DL. He pitched a gem on Saturday, but took a no-decision as the Hernan Perez scored the only Brewer run with a solo home run.
Ryan Braun is dealing with soreness in his right arm and has been out all week. Hopefully he will be back in the lineup on Tuesday.
Junior Guerra, who strained his calf on Opening Day, pitched a simulated game with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers over the weekend and will pitch live batting practice in Milwaukee this week. The Brewers hope that he will be back in the rotation by the end of May.
This week, the Ask DJ segment features some questions from Pirate fans, thanks to my friends at the North Shore Nine.
