The positives from this weekend? Both the Brewers and Bucks picked up big wins yesterday; the Crew defeated the Cardinals 9-3 to secure the series win while the Bucks stomped on the Magic to end a three-game losing streak.
The negatives? The injury bug is biting both teams.
Both Christian Yelich and Travis Shaw were pulled early from Sunday’s contest, Yeli with lower back soreness and Shaw after a foul ball caromed off his right shin and ankle. Manager Craig Counsell says both players are considered day-to-day ahead of tonight’s game against the Cubs at American Family Field.
As for the Bucks, they got Jrue Holiday back yesterday but played their fifth straight game without Giannis Antetokounmpo; he is still dealing with left knee soreness and the team says there is no timetable for his return to action. Beat writer Eric Nehm says the team is playing the situation very cautiously and will be extremely patient in getting him back on the floor. P.J. Tucker was also not playing yesterday with his strained left calf.
