Jesus Aguilar went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI to lead his team over the Reds 7-0 on Wednesday.

He plated the first RBI by poking an infield single in the first inning. The rest of them scored in a more impressive fashion -- he blasted a three-run homer off Matt Harvey in the third inning. Gio Gonzalez and Christian Yelich came along for the ride. The big first baseman seems to be recovering from a late-season swoon and has boosted his line back up to .275/.351/.545 with 33 home runs and 103 RBI in just 455 at-bats on the season. Imagine what he could do with another 150 at-bats like a lot of other hitters will get this year.

Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 and scored two runs in a win over the Reds on Wednesday.

One of the hits was a double as the outfielder finishes strong in his first season with the Brewers. He was driven in twice by Jesus Aguilar, once on an infield single and the other on a three-run homer. He is setting new career highs in every category straight across the board as he takes his game to a new level. He owns a .319/.385/.569 slash line with 31 home runs, 93 RBI, 104 runs scored and 20 stolen bases. He is being mentioned as an MVP candidate for the first time in his career.

Gio Gonzalez held the Reds to zero runs on two hits through six innings and was rewarded with a win on Wednesday.

He surrendered a pair of singles and a pair of walks while striking out five in the victory. The former National has pitched well in two of his three starts since joining the Brewers in the middle of a pennant race. For the season he is 9-11 with a 4.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 30 starts. He is a back-end starter in fantasy terms. He is hard to trust on a daily basis and should only be used against weak-hitting teams. He lines up for one more start in the regular season, which will come in St. Louis against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Ryan Braun is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Reds due to back pain.

This makes three straight missed games for Braun, and the reason given is that the outfielder's back has "flared up" again. Braun has battled injuries all year, and the 34-year-old has struggled to a .247 average and .738 OPS with 15 homers over 115 games in 2018.
Sep 19 - 4:42 PM

Travis Shaw (knee) is hitting fourth and playing second base for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Shaw left Tuesday's game and was diagnosed with a contusion in his right knee after taking a pitcher to it in the bottom of the second inning. He was examined Wednesday, and obviously there was no structural damage.
Sep 19 - 4:10 PM

Lorenzo Cain (intercostal) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Reds.

Cain was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Reds after the muscle stiffened up on him. Christian Yelich will start in center field and Domingo Santana will patrol right field. Cain should be considered day-to-day, with a chance to return to the lineup on Friday against the Pirates.
Sep 19 - 4:07 PM

Chase Anderson gave up three runs in 3 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Reds.

The Brewers are going with increasingly quick hooks with Anderson. It seems like it was the right move tonight, as the bullpen came through with 5 1/3 scoreless innings, but the offense never stepped up to let him off the hook. Anderson has thrown a total of 17 2/3 innings in his four starts this month, even though he's allowed just six runs. The Brewers will probably keep using him in such a fashion.
Sep 18 - 11:52 PM

Christian Yelich missed a cycle by a homer, a triple and a double Tuesday, but he did single and steal his 20th base.

It's quite the nice bonus that Yelich could also have a high steal count this year in the season in which he broke through as an offensive superstar. He swiped 21 bases in his first full season in 2014, but he had come in at 16, nine and 16 in the three years since.
Sep 18 - 11:47 PM

Lorenzo Cain left Tuesday night's game against the Reds due to a sore intercostal muscle.

Cain initially tweaked his intercostal on a swing a few days ago, and it apparently stiffened up on him after four innings Tuesday. Keon Broxton took over in center field for the Brewers in the top of the fifth. It sounds like Cain will ultimately be fine, but any days missed are obviously hurtful at this point in the season.
Sep 18 - 10:54 PM

Travis Shaw was removed from Tuesday night's game against the Reds due to a right knee contusion.

Shaw took a pitch off the knee in the bottom of the second inning and eventually got replaced in the Brewers' lineup by Hernan Perez. This is hopefully just a day-to-day situation for Shaw. He'll be reevaluated Wednesday.
Sep 18 - 8:48 PM

Brewers released RHP Daniel Missaki.

Missaki was acquired from the Mariners back in December 2015 as part of a package for Adam Lind, but he underwent a second career Tommy John elbow surgery in March 2016 and hasn't pitched in a professional game since.
Sep 18 - 6:18 PM

Wade Miley fired five shutout innings to pick up a win over the Reds on Monday.

Miley scattered five hits, struck out a pair of batters and did not issue a walk over five solid frames. He was staked to an early lead and cruised to yet another victory. The 31-year-old southpaw's shocking renaissance has been one of the most compelling storylines in fantasy baseball this season. He's 5-2 with a microscopic 2.08 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 47/25 K/BB ratio in 14 starts. He’ll face the Pirates on the road in his next start on Sunday.
Sep 17 - 11:33 PM

Brandon Woodruff tossed three scoreless innings to record a save Monday in the Brewers' win over the Reds.

Woodruff entered the contest with the Brewers leading by eight runs and reeled off three shutout frames to notch his first career save. He allowed three hits, struck out a pair of batters and only issued one walk. The 25-year-old right-hander has given up just one run over 8 1/3 relief innings since being recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on September 1.
Sep 17 - 11:18 PM

Curtis Granderson went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and three runs scored in the Brewers' lopsided win over the Reds on Monday.

Granderson reached safely in three of five plate appearances out of the leadoff spot in this one. The 37-year-old veteran outfielder is hitting .333 (6-for-18) with 11 runs scored, two homers and three RBI in 11 games since being acquired from the Blue Jays on August 31.
Sep 17 - 11:06 PM

Domingo Santana crushed a pinch-hit homer in the Brewers' blowout win over the Reds on Monday.

Santana swatted a pinch-hit, solo homer -- his fifth of the year -- off Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani in fifth inning. The 26-year-old slugger has left the yard in back-to-back games, but has been utilized exclusively in a pinch-hitting role in recent weeks. He's hitting .462 (6-for-13) with a pair of homers since being recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on September 1.
