Today's lessons include plenty of coverage from the firing of Ron Roenicke.

Unless you disconnected from the world yesterday, you heard the big news of the day. Following the Brewers game yesterday, the Brewers announced that they had relieved Ron Roenicke of his managerial duties. With the Brewers collapse last year and a terrible start to this season, this isn't as much of a surprise. There's plenty of coverage about the firing, so let's catch you up on all of it.

Around the Web

The firing of Ron Roenicke wasn't the only thing that happened over the weekend. Here's a recap of some of the other things that happened with the Brewers this weekend.

This Weekend's Results

Cubs 1, Brewers 0

A pitcher's duel broke out at Miller Park on Friday. Wily Peralta and Jon Lester battled all day, and a solo home run given up by Peralta was the only damage of the day. Peralta allowed a run in six innings, but Lester held the Brewers to three hits and a walk in seven innings.

Brewers 6, Cubs 1

It was one of the few times this season where everything went right for the Brewers. Mike Fiers was on fire, striking out twelve Cubs in six innings, only allowing a solo home run to Anthony Rizzo. Meanwhile, Ryan Braun hit his fifth home run of the season, and Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura each had an RBI single.

Brewers 5, Cubs 3

The Brewers did something they haven't done yet this season on Sunday: Win back-to-back games. Aramis Ramirez led the offense with a solo home run in the second, and added two more in the eighth inning on a Ramirez RBI single. Meanwhile, Jimmy Nelson didn't have his best stuff, but he game the Brewers a chance with a quality start, allowing three runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings.
