The Milwaukee Brewers were shut down by Edison Volquez and the Cincinnati Reds again on Tuesday night, falling 4-3 at Miller Park. Volquez allowed just one run on three hits in 8 innings of work. The Brewers touched Francisco Cordero for two runs, one of them unearned in the 9th to make it close but Cordero still recorded his 38th save. Jim Edmonds homered against Dave Bush in the second for the early lead, Bush dropped to 7-13 with the loss. Cincinnati has taken 9 of 10 games against the Brewers and in the process, reduced their magic number to clinch the NL central to 4 games after Pittsburgh knocked off St. Louis. Milwaukee (69-81) hopes to avoid the sweep sending Randy Wolf against Johnny Cueto in the series finale Wednesday night.
Badger D takes a hit
Wisconsin sophomore linebacker Chris Borland, the Big Ten's defensive freshman of the year last season, has now been ruled out for the rest of the 2010 campaign because of a shoulder injury. Borland had off-season surgery and tried to play in Wisconsin's opener but re-injured the shoulder, missed the second game and was forced to leave early last week. Borland had 54 tackles, 5 sacks and 5 forced fumbles for the Badger defense last year.
Skiles optimistic about Bogut
The Milwaukee Bucks open their training camp next week and at the team's annual golf outing earlier this week, head coach Scott Skiles said he's hopeful Andrew Bogut will be ready when the season tips off. Bogut suffered an ugly injury to his wrist and elbow last April, requiring season ending surgery. Skiles also said the team will ease newcomer Corey Magette after he had arthroscopic surgery earlier this summer.
