>>Marlins Beat Milwaukee In Extra Innings, 5-4

(Miami, FL)  —  Both wins by the Miami Marlins in a three-game series against the Brewers were walk-offs.  Wednesday night second baseman Starlin Castro singled in the winner in the bottom of the 12th inning with one out.  Only a few hundred fans were in the stands at the end and the announced attendance of five-thousand-265 was the smallest in the park’s seven-year history.  Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar found out he won the online vote for the final National League roster spot, then went three-for-five with three runs batted in while his team lost.  Milwaukee is expected to activate left-hander Wade Miley from the disabled list so he can start tonight’s (Thursday’s) game at Pittsburgh.


>>1B Aguilar Wins Vote For Final NL All-Star Position

(New York, NY)  —  Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar and Seattle Mariners shortstop Jean Segura have won the last two roster positions for next week’s Major League All-Star game in Washington, D-C.  Segura is a former Brewer who is hitting .329 with an O-P-S of .823.  Aguilar leads the National League with 23 home runs and is second with 67 runs batted in.  Aguilar and Segura were chosen in an online vote from a list of five players submitted to the fans.  Aguilar will also compete in the home run derby.


>>Packers Get Player They’ve Watched — Now Is There A Place For Him?

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers have a lot of depth on the defensive line, but they’ve been watching one player for almost two years.  Now that defensive tackle Joey Mbu has been signed, the question is whether the Packers have room for him.  Mbu says he took a lot of notes during organized team activities and then went home to study — so he will be as prepared as possible when training camp starts July 26th.  Green Bay has Pro Bowl players like Muhammad Wilkerson and Mike Daniels, plus improving Kenny Clark, standing between the new guy and playing time.  That will all be hashed out at camp.


>>Former Verona Standout Transferring To UW

(Madison, WI)  —  An ailing father has played a part in the decision by former Verona basketball standout Alex Luehring to transfer to the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Luehring will appeal to the N-C-A-A for a family hardship waiver after leaving the U-W-Green Bay Phoenix.  Her father was diagnosed last year with stage-four kidney cancer.  Luehring red-shirted in Green Bay last season.  She’s a six-foot-two forward who would be the sixth member of an incoming freshman class for coach Jonathan Tsipis.  If the waiver is granted, she could play immediately.
