Brewers Strike Out 13 Times But Still Beat Arizona http://www.wrjc.com/sports/brewers-strike-out-13-times-but-still-beat-arizona/ http://www.wrjc.com/sports/brewers-strike-out-13-times-but-still-beat-arizona/#comments Fri, 29 Jul 2016 13:22:38 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=128423 More >]]> (Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers strike out 13 times but still beat Arizona 6-4 Thursday at Miller Park. The Diamondbacks’ Robbie Ray struck out a career high eleven in five and two thirds innings, but he also gave up five runs as his record fell to 5-10. Martin Maldonado broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth when he singled home the run that put the Crew in front for good and Hernan Perez and Kirk Nieuwenhuis homered, as the Brewers took three of four from Arizona to win their first series since July sixth. Zach Davies got the win and is now 8-4, Jeremy Jeffress picked up his 24th save, and the Brewers won without Ryan Braun, who had side pain, Jonathan Lucroy, subject of more trade rumors, and Jonathan Villar, benched for being too risky on the base paths. Milwaukee opens a home series Friday against Pittsburgh.

Packers Rest After Long Padded Practice http://www.wrjc.com/sports/packers-rest-after-long-padded-practice/ http://www.wrjc.com/sports/packers-rest-after-long-padded-practice/#comments Fri, 29 Jul 2016 13:20:56 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=128421 More >]]> (Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers will not practice Friday after their first Training Camp workout in full pads which lasted two and one half hours. Rookie linebacker Blake Martinez has been working with the first team this week in the base package and the nickel unit with five defensive backs and on Thursday, he worked with the starters as the sixth defensive back in the dime package, as his role steadily expanded during the week. Second round rookie tackle Jason Spriggs got a taste of the NFL when he blocked veteran linebacker Julius Peppers in a one on one drill and he got caught by one of Peppers’ slick pass rushing moves during a scrimmage. Kicker Mason Crosby made all six of his field goal attempts. And starting center Corey Linsley says he’s “day to day” as he nurses a hamstring injury from the Packers’ offseason workouts in the middle of May.

Schneider tells ESPN there have been a “lot of whispers” about an escape clause in his new deal that could let him eventually replace Packers’ GM Ted Thompson. But Schneider insists there is no such clause, and the De Pere native expects to stay in Seattle through 2021. Schneider has run the Seahawks’ front office since 2010 after eight years with the Packers as a personnel analyst and the head of football operations. There has also been a lot of speculation about Eliot Wolf replacing Thompson when he’s ready to retire, after the 34-year-old Wolf was promoted in March to become Green Bay’s football operations director.

Interim CEO Kathleen O’Leary says recent worldwide terrorist incidents have made safety a top priority at the State Fair. She says visitors will not need to remove their belts or shoes like they do at US airports. Fairgoers with larger bags, strollers, and wagons will be checked with wands. O’Leary tells WISN TV the fair will have 50 additional public safety officers, and while the officers have had extensive training, O’Leary says visitors should allow more time to enter the eleven day State Fair, which runs from August fourth through 14th.
