>>Brewers Start 10-Game Road Trip With 6-2 Win At Colorado

(Denver, CO)  —  Former Rockies pitcher Jhoulys Chacin picked up the win for the Milwaukee Brewers in Thursday’s 5-2 game at Colorado.  Lorenzo Cain knocked the first pitch of the game out of the park and the Brewers never trailed.  Chacin spent six years of his career pitching in Denver.  He improved his record to 3-1 by holding the home team to two runs in five-and-a-third innings.  Jeremy Jeffress earned his third save by striking out the side in the ninth.  Travis Shaw had three hits for Milwaukee and Hernan Perez knocked in a pair of runs with a single.  Rookie right-hander Brandon Woodruff is expected to be the starting pitcher for the Brewers in tonight’s 7:40 P-M contest.

 

>>Bucks Reach Halfway Point Of Head Coach Interviews

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Bucks are halfway through the process of interviewing head coaching possibilities from outside the organization.  There are six known candidates and three have been interviewed so far.  Among them, former Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer is thought to be a front-runner, though the team hasn’t said that.  San Antonio Spurs V-P of basketball operations Monty Williams, Spurs assistant Becky Hammon and former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt are still being considered.  No one has been officially ruled out — including last season’s interim coach Joe Prunty.

 

>>Packers:  3 Draft Picks Left To Sign, $4M In The Bank

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Under the league’s agreement with the N-F-L Players Association, the Green Bay Packers have a little over four-million dollars to spend while signing their top three draft picks.  That gives the team some maneuvering room to reach agreements with Jaire Alexander, Josh Jackson, and Oren Burks.  The Packers are current about 16-million dollars under the league’s salary cap.  When the final three draft picks are in the fold, they should have about 13-and-a-half-million dollars left to spend.  That could go to free agents or be factored into a new contract for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

 

>>Brewers Activate Lefty Reliever Boone Logan

(Denver, CO)  —  The already-strong Milwaukee Brewers bullpen added another tested arm when left-handed reliever Boone Logan was activated Thursday.  Logan pitched to one batter in the 5-2 victory at Colorado.  He’s been sidelined since spring training with a strained triceps.  Logan signed a free-agent deal with the Brewers during the off-season.  Milwaukee’s bullpen currently has the second-best earned run average in the major leagues at two-point-61, trailing only Arizona.
