Yesterday’s Results

Brewers 8, Royals 4

The Brewers were led yesterday by Gerardo Parra, who hit a three-run home in the fourth inning to help blow the game open for the Brewers. He also had a sacrifice fly in the second inning. Khris Davis drove in two runs with a double in the first, and another run with a double in the fifth. Wily Peralta struggled a bit yesterday, but managed to pitch 3 1/3 innings, allowing four hits and a run. The one run he allowed came from a monster home run by Mike Moustakas.

Ron Roenicke's option for 2016 has been exercised.

This morning, the Brewers decided to extend Ron Roenicke's contract by picking up his option for 2016. Noah covered the decision in a post this morning, including what it means for the team. Right now, this decision doesn't really mean much. It gives the Brewers some security to keep him if he has a good season, and if he does not, the team can still remove him with little extra consequence. This doesn't really change anything else as the season gets closer to starting. Roenicke will be scrutinized as the season starts, and a bad start could still mean that he's gone.
