>>Sunlight Doesn’t Help Brewers See Carlos Carrasco’s Slider In 6-2 Loss

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Cleveland right-hander Carlos Carrasco fanned 14 Milwaukee batters while going the distance in a 6-2 win at Miller Park Wednesday afternoon.  The Brewers have dropped nine-of-13 day games this year, while posting the best Major League Baseball record in night games, 17-and-seven.  The Indians touched Junior Guerra for four runs in the fourth inning.  Corey Knebel pitched for the first time in more than a month, giving up a leadoff home run to Francisco Lindor.  Travis Shaw drove in Milwaukee’s first run in the seventh on a grounder.  Jesus Aguilar had a sacrifice fly in the ninth.  The Brewers are off today, then they will start Jhoulys Chacin against his former Colorado Rockies teammates Friday.


>>Happ Works Out For Bucks

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Ethan Happ isn’t gone from the Wisconsin Badgers yet.  The six-foot-10 forward is scheduled to work out for the Milwaukee Bucks today, but he hasn’t been invited to the N-B-A Draft Combine next week.  Happ still hasn’t hired an agent and he has until May 30th to withdraw his name from the draft and return for his senior year with the Badgers.  Happ has said that is what he will do if he isn’t projected as a first-round talent.  His final decision hasn’t been made.


>>Mavericks Coach Not Interested In Bucks Job

(Dallas, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks can apparently forget about hiring Rick Carlisle to coach — that is, if he was ever being considered.  Reporting out of Milwaukee suggested the Dallas Mavericks head man wanted a move to the Cheese State.  Not so.  Carlisle released a formal statement Wednesday afternoon saying rumors he had interest in the Bucks job “are completely inaccurate.”  He has been in Dallas for the last 10 seasons.  The Bucks have been interviewing candidates to replace interim coach Joe Prunty, but the front office hasn’t indicated any favorites.


>>Home Course Not Enough, Badger Golf Team Staying Home – Except For Curtis

(Madison, WI)  —  Even though the competition was held on their home golf course, University Ridge, the Wisconsin women’s golf team failed to qualify for the N-C-A-A National Tournament.  Senior Gabby Curtis did make it as an individual qualifier by finishing fourth.  The tournament wasn’t really a loss for U-W.  The Badgers ninth-place finish was their best in four years and they set a season record for scoring average, but only the top six teams advance.  Curtis will compete in the tournament in Stillwater, Oklahoma, May 18th-through-the-23rd.
