The Clobbering Cardinals

On Friday night, the Brewers exploded for a six run lead over the Cardinals. Unfortunately, the Cardinals clobbered four home runs to erase the deficit and eventually win, 7-6. After the Brewers’ fast start, the loss was unexpected, to say the least. Even more so… [More]

Let’s Talk About Lucroy

“I’m never happy with myself. If I’m hitting well, I want to hit better. It’s my personality not to give up. I’ve always worked hard and pushed myself. Nothing is good enough.” A 16-year-old Jonathan Lucroy said the above after being named the Orlando Sentinel… [More]
