>>Brewers Complete 3-Game Sweep Of Cincinnati Behind Miley

(Cincinnati, OH)  —  Left-hander Wade Miley held Cincinnati to three hits and one run in six innings in his first start of the year.  Milwaukee won the Wednesday night game 3-1, earning a sweep of the three-game series and taking sole possession of first place in the National League Central Division.  Christian Yelich hit his third home run off Reds starter and loser Luis Castillo in the fifth inning.  That broke a 1-1 tie and gave Miley his first major league victory since last August when he was pitching for Baltimore.  Yelich, Jesus Aguilar, and Domingo Santana each had a pair of hits.  Jeremy Jeffress pitched two scoreless innings to claim his second save in two days.  The Brewers take today off, then Junior Guerra starts the first game of a three-game series at home against Pittsburgh Friday.


>>Marquette Strengthens Schedule With Home-And-Home Against Kansas State

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Marquette Golden Eagles will play Kansas State next season, meeting the Wildcats for the first time in 30 years.  Milwaukee native Bruce Weber coaches a K-S-U squad expected to be an N-C-A-A tournament team after reaching the Elite Eight last March.  Eagles coach Steve Wojchiechowski says his team’s non-conference schedule is shaping up to be the most-challenging one since he’s been at Marquette.  The K-State meeting is a home-and-home, with the Wildcats playing at the new Wisconsin Sports and Entertainment Center December 1st.  Marquette travels to Kansas next season.  The Golden Eagles are also signed up for the Pre-season N-I-T in November.
