The Brewers are on the verge of adding some depth to their
pitching staff.  Reports say the team is
ready to sign Matt Garza to a 4-year deal worth $52 million dollars.  As media outlets reported the deal yesterday,
the Brewers released a statement saying they were in negotiations but the deal
is not done.  He went 10-6 with a 3.82
ERA with the Cubs and Rangers.  His
career record is 67-67 with a 3.84 ERA in eight seasons.


The Badger men’s basketball team will try and snap a three
game slide on Saturday as they travel to Purdue.  Coverage begins at 3pm on KFIZ.


Stuart Cink has a one shot lead after the first round of the
PGA Tour stop at Torrey Pines over Gary Woodland.  Tiger Woods is 8 shots back after an even par
72.  He’s won 8 times at Torrey Pines.


The Pro Bowl is Sunday night.  You’ll hear it on KFIZ.  Coverage begins at 6pm.  Running back Eddie Lacy is the only Packer in

St. Mary’s Springs hockey team rallied for a 4-1 win over Beaver Dam on
Thursday night at the Blueline
Family Ice
.  The Ledgers
fell behind 1-0 with 11:40 left in the first period when Colton Anderson scored
an unassisted goal.  That lead held up for the Golden Beavers through 2
periods and then the floodgates opened for SMSA.  Jackson Voight got the
Ledgers going with an unassisted goal from the blue line with 13:12 left in
regulation to tie it at 1-1.  At the 11:46 mark, Anthony Grebe scored a
power play goal on a rebound to give St. Mary’s Springs lead.  Conner
Blank and Voight got assists.  With 7:05 left, Grebe scored another power
play goal from Blank and Voight to make it 3-1.  Mark Austin put the game
away with a goal with 4:51 left on a great pass from Blank.  The Ledgers
outshot Beaver Dam 43-7 on the night.  SMSA improves to 9-7 overall and
4-2 in Badgerland Conference play.  Beaver Dam drops to 3-9-2 overall and
1-5 in the league.  Springs hosts Neenah
