What we learned: July 7, 2014

Jamie Sabau

Today's lessons include the All-Star roster, a roster move, and much more from the holiday weekend.

This Weekend's Results

Reds 4, Brewers 2

Kyle Lohse gave up four runs in five innings, the first two from a Billy Hamilton home run followed by single runs in the fourth and fifth innings. Meanwhile, the Brewers offense struggled, only able to put up single runs in the seventh and eight innings.

Brewers 1, Reds 0

The Brewers got on the board early with an RBI single from Aramis Ramirez. That was all they could get off of Reds starter Homer Bailey, who pitched eight innings and allowed only that single run. However, Matt Garza was better, pitching a complete game two-hit shutout to get the Brewers the win.

Reds 4, Brewers 2

Yovani Gallardo put together a solid start, allowing two runs in six innings. The Brewers offense was held in check until the fifth inning, when they got their first hit. They tied the game at 2 from runs by Logan Schafer. However, Jay Bruce hit a two-run home run off of Will Smith to go ahead 4-2, and Jonathan Broxton closed out the game for the Reds.

Four Brewers were named to the NL All-Star Team.

The MLB All-Star rosters were named last night, and four Brewers ended up making the team. Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez were both named as starters to the NL team, Jonathan Lucroy made the team as a reserve, and Francisco Rodriguez was added to the pitching staff. On the other side, candidate from the Brewers left off the roster were Kyle Lohse, Zach Duke, Will Smith, and Ryan Braun. There's still a chance that one of those pitchers could make the roster as replacements are needed, but for now, those are your four selections to the team.

Logan Schafer made his return to Milwaukee.

Going back to Friday of last week, the Brewers made a roster move in the wake of Khris Davis' shoulder injury. They recalled Logan Schafer from Nashville and demoted Elian Herrera. The Brewers needed another true outfielders with Davis' injury, and Schafer had been playing well in Triple-A. He ended up playing 26 of 27 innings over the weekend, getting the start in left on Friday, then replacing Ryan Braun in right on Saturday and Sunday. He went 2-for-9 over the weekend with two runs scored.
