>>Brewers Prepare For Wild Card Round at Dodgers
(Los Angeles, CA) — The Milwaukee Brewers are in Los Angeles preparing for Wednesday night’s playoff opener at Dodger Stadium. The eighth-seeded Brewers face the National League’s top seed in the best-of-three Wild Card series. Outfielder Christian Yelich said the Dodgers “are the favorites for what they’ve done in the regular season and they’re a great team, no doubt, but we’ve got a chance.” L-A named Walker Buehler as the Game 1 starter and Clayton Kershaw will take the mound Thursday. The Brewers haven’t named their starting pitchers. Brandon Woodruff threw eight scoreless innings Saturday in St. Louis, Brett Anderson left Sunday’s season finale with a blister, and Josh Lindblom pitched the nightcap of Friday’s doubleheader. Left-hander Brent Suter could get the start out of the bullpen.
>>Brewers P Williams Named Rookie Reliever Of Month For September
(Los Angeles, CA) — Major League Baseball is honoring Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Devin Williams for his performance in September. Williams was named National League Reliever of the Month on Monday. He appeared in nine games and allowed no runs over 13 innings with 24 strikeouts. Williams is also a candidate to N-L Reliever of the Year. Twenty-six-year-old Williams had a 4-and-1 record and 0.33 Earned Run Average.
>>Badgers Still Top 20 Team In College Football Polls
(Madison, WI) — The Wisconsin Badgers haven’t played a game since the Rose Bowl but they’re back in the top 25 this week. U-W was number-12 in the preseason Associated Press poll before the Big Ten postponed the fall football season. The Badgers are number 18 in this week’s Coaches poll and rank 19th in the A-P poll. Minnesota and Iowa were in the initial poll in August but were unranked in both new polls. Ohio State is number six, Penn State is tenth and Michigan is number 21. Wisconsin opens the season against Illinois on October 24th at Camp Randall.
>>Lazard Emerges As Packers #2 Wide Receiver Behind Adams
(Green Bay, WI) — It appears that Allen Lazard is now the Green Bay Packers’ number-two wide receiver. Lazard caught six passes for a career-high 146 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night’s 37-30 win at the Saints. He became Aaron Rodgers’ go-to target in New Orleans without Pro Bowl wide-out Davante Adams on the field. Lazard hauled in 48- and 72-yard catches that set up a pair of touchdowns. He was rewarded for his effort with the ‘game ball’ in the locker room. Coach Matt LaFleur said Lazard “has become a really, really consistent high-level player for our offense.” The Pack signed the Iowa State star off the Jacksonville practice squad in 2018.
>>Bucks G Matthews Makes Largest Gift to Midwest Athletes Against Cancer

Matthews said,”as a professional athlete, I feel a responsibility to use my platform to make a significant impact on the communities around me.” Matthews is a graduate of James Madison Memorial High and played college hoops at Marquette University.
