Wisconsin Sports 5-1

Wisconsin State Sports (5am update)


>>Brewers Bats Wake Up From 4-Game Nap In Come-From-Behind Win

(Cincinnati, OH)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers scored three times in the seventh inning to earn a come-from-behind victory at Cincinnati Monday, 6-5.  Catcher Manny Pina’s homer in the fourth was the first run the Brewers had scored in 23 innings.  Lorenzo Cain added a two-run shot in the fifth.  Rookie Brandon Woodruff retired four straight batters to pick up the win and Josh Hader fanned eight batters in two-and-two-thirds innings to earn his fourth save.  Closer Corey Knebel threw 25 pitches during batting practice on his way back from a strained left hamstring injury.  Chase Anderson starts Tuesday’s game for Milwaukee, with first pitch at 6:10 P-M.


>>Former Badger QB Signs With Cleveland Browns

(Cleveland, OH)  —  Former Wisconsin Badger quarterback Joel Stave has signed a contract with the N-F-L’s Cleveland Browns.  Stave passed for seven-thousand-635 yards and 48 touchdowns while leading Wisconsin to a 31-10 record.  Stave was on the practice squads for the Washington Redskins and New York Jets last season.  He joins Tyrod Taylor, Drew Stanton and number-one N-F-L draft choice Baker Mayfield as quarterbacks for the Browns.


>>Packers Tackle Bulaga Says No To Pay Cut

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Injury-plagued offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga has refused to take a pay cut by the Green Bay Packers.  Bulaga’s five-year deal signed in 2015 has two years left.  The 29-year-old right tackle will count almost eight-million dollars against the salary cap in 2018.  A knee injury ended his 2017 season early and the 315-pounder has only averaged playing 12 games-a-season during his eight-year career.  Cutting Bulaga before June 1st would save the Packers about four-point-seven-million dollars in cap space.


>>Former Milwaukee Closer Gives It One More Shot In Atlantic League

(Central Islip, NY)  —  Former Milwaukee Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez has been out of organized baseball for 10 months.  The man once known as “K-Rod” was cut last June by the Detroit Tigers.  Now, he is going to suit up for the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League.  Even though it is far from “The Show,” former big leaguers like Rich Hill — now with the Dodgers — Scott Kazmir and Stephen Drew have played in the seven-team league.  Rodriguez is a six-time all-star who finished third in the Cy Young award voting in 2008.  He has 437 lifetime saves.
