Wisconsin State Sports (5am update)


>>Brewers Sagging At The Plate

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  We’re one-fifth of the way through the 2018 Major League Baseball season and the Milwaukee Brewers batters have yet to hit their stride.  The new stars, Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich, have done their part, but Travis Shaw is in a four-for-42 slump and Eric Sogard is oh-for-27.  Despite sitting in second place in the National League Central, one game out of first, Milwaukee is next-to-last in the league in scoring at just three-point-77 runs-a-game.  Batters are walking at the same rate as last year and striking out less, making almost exactly the same amount of hard contact — giving reason to believe the Brewers can turn it back on.


>>Only 3 Packers Draft Picks Remain Unsigned

(Green Bay, WI)  —  After a busy Monday the Green Bay Packers have signed eight of their 11 picks in the 2018 N-F-L Draft.  Only first-round cornerback Jaire Alexander, second-round cornerback Josh Jackson and third-round inside linebacker Oren Burks haven’t signed yet.  The team signed five draft picks Monday, including wide receiver J’Mon Moore, who was taken in the fourth round.  Rookie free agents linebacker Greer Martini and tight end Ryan Smith also signed deals during Monday’s activity.  Two former Packers — punter Justin Vogel and backup quarterback Joe Callahan — signed with the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles, respectively.


>>Badger Golf Team Stays Hot At NCAA Regional

(Madison, WI)  —  Led by senior Gabby Curtis, the Wisconsin women’s golf team is enjoying its competition in the N-C-A-A regional at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison so far.  Curtis fired a career-best five-under-par 67 Monday on the home course.  The Badgers finished the first day of the tournament 11 shots behind the Virginia Cavaliers with a 290.  That mark is better than the team’s season average of 292 and almost four strokes better than the all-time record of a little over 296.


>>Packers DB Dix Earns College Degree

(Tuscaloosa, AL)  —  Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has kept a promise he made to his family when he declared for the N-F-L Draft as a college junior in 2014.  He has completed his college coursework and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, accepting his diploma last weekend at the University of Alabama.  Clinton-Dix returned to the campus to take classes after his 2016 All-Pro season.  Last summer he interned with the Green Bay Police Department and at the Brown County Courthouse.
