What we learned: April 28, 2015

News and notes from around the Brewers and Baseball.

Yesterday's Game:

Brewers 6, Reds 9

In a surprising twist, the Brewers lost. The Reds scored early and often, though the Brewers did mount a comeback in the ninth inning to close the gap and actually get the tying runner to the plate. However, with two outs and two runners on, Ryan Braun struck out to end the game.

Brewers news and notes:

Around baseball:

  • The big news, of course, was the Angels trading Josh Hamilton to the Rangers, who he had previously played for before signing with Los Angeles. Hamilton has had his share of demons and apparently both sides were done with one another. He had previously had a lot of success in Texas, so here's hoping he gets back on track.
  • The Reds placed pitcher Homer Bailey on the DL. The severity of his injury is not yet known, but it could be fairly serious.
  • Brandon McCarthy has a torn UCL and is done for the season.
  • Adam Wainwright is officially out for the season, meaning whoever takes his place in the Cardinals rotation will end up with something like a 1.93 ERA.
