>>Diamondbacks Break Losing Streak, Take Pitchers’ Duel From Milwaukee 2-1

(Phoenix, AZ)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers wasted a seven-inning, two-hit performance by starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin in a 2-1 loss at Arizona Tuesday night.  The Diamondbacks ended a six-game losing streak with the victory when Daniel Descalso singled in a run in the bottom of the eighth.  Travis Shaw knocked in Milwaukee’s only run with a double in the fourth and the two teams had remained tied until Descalso’s run-scoring grounder.  Trevor Williams took the loss, although it was Boone Logan who gave up the game-winning hit.  Right-hander Brandon Woodruff starts today’s (Wednesday’s) series finale at 2:40 P-M.

 

>>2 WIAC Teams Qualify For NCAA Division III Baseball Tournament

(Whitewater, WI)  — Two baseball teams from the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference have qualified for the post-season.  The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is playing in the N-C-A-A Division-Three baseball tournament for the 11th straight year.  The Warhawks are ranked number-one nationally but are actually a number-two seed at the regional in Sauget, Illinois, near St. Louis.  U-W-Oshkosh is ranked number-seven nationally and is hoping to recapture the national prominence it once held.  The Titans are seeded third in the Duluth Regional, playing in the post-season for the first time in 10 years.  Both Wisconsin teams play first-round games Thursday night.

 

>>Packers Sign 1st Round Pick Alexander

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst has announced the signing of first-round draft pick Jaire Alexander.  The five-foot-11 cornerback was chosen in last month’s 2018 N-F-L Draft after he played his college football for the Louisville Cardinals.  The Packers have tried to bulk up their secondary after surrendering 30 touchdown passes last season.  That sub-par performance led to the drafting of Alexander and Iowa defensive back Josh Jackson.  Injuries have been a problem for the Packers in recent seasons and they sought depth in preparation for 2018.

 

>>Surgery For Brewers Catcher Confirmed

(Los Angeles, CA)  —  Brewers catcher Stephen Vogt will have surgery on his shoulder later this week.  Vogt sought a second opinion for Los Angeles specialist Neal El-Attrache Tuesday and the need for the procedure was confirmed.  An M-R-I of his shoulder in Milwaukee had revealed damage to the labrum, rotator cuff, and capsule.  That indicates an extensive injury which will be season-ending but could also threaten to end the 33-year-old’s career.  He suffered a strained shoulder during spring training and was rehabbing with Class Double-A Biloxi when he did the damage while making a throw to third base.
