NEW YORK - The New York Mets traded closer Francisco Rodriguez to the Milwaukee Brewers last night for two players to be named. The deal was announced right after the All-Star Game ended. The Mets also sent cash to Milwaukee. The Brewers are tied with St. Louis for the NL Central lead, helped by closer John Axford's 23 saves. In another deal, the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired outfielder Juan Rivera from Toronto for a player to be named or cash.

The start times for the remainder of the first round were announced tonight and the Phillies and Cardinals will play at 5:07 p.m. on Tuesday in Game 3 and 6:07 p.m. on Wednesday in Game 4, if necessary. The Game 4 start time could move back to 8:07 if that is the only game, should the Brewers-Diamondbacks series end in a sweep. Both games 3 and 4 are scheduled to be in St. Louis.

Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco is a young slugger who is harder on himself than he is on opposing pitchers. With the Phillies offense struggling to score consistently, Franco has put even more pressure on himself. "I know sometimes I try to do too much," he said before Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park. "You get in trouble sometimes and that is happening to me right now, but I just try to do what I can to get out of this. " In his previous five games entering Thursday, Franco was 2 for 17 (.118)

MILWAUKEE - Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo readily calls this start the biggest of his career. Diamondbacks ace Ian Kennedy hoped for any chance to pitch again this season. "It's definitely a whole different atmosphere," Gallardo said. "Anything can happen. " The Arizona Diamondbacks look to complete their biggest rally of the season after being down, two games to none, on Friday when they face the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 5 with a berth in the NL Championship Series at stake.

George West, a former standout at Buena who played a few seasons of professional baseball, has been named the new head baseball coach at his alma mater. A 1994 graduate of Buena, West will replace Charlie Arena, who stepped down following last season. The appointment was approved at Tuesday's school board meeting. Arena had a highly successful tenure, going 100-32 in five seasons. "It's great to be coaching at my old high school," West said. "Buena has always been good to me, from when I was a student to now. " West, 26, is a special-education teacher at the school.

MILWAUKEE - Zack Grienke capped a perfect season at home to help the Milwaukee Brewers clinch home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs with a 7-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night. Carlos Gomez, Corey Hart, and Jonathan Lucroy homered for the Brewers, who set a franchise record with 96 wins and open an NL division series at Miller Park beginning Saturday. If the NL Central champions had tied with NL West winner Arizona in the standings, the Brewers would have started the playoffs on the road.

MILWAUKEE - Jonathan Lucroy drove in the go-ahead run with a squeeze, and the Milwaukee Brewers showed they could bunt as well as bash, breaking away from the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-4, Sunday to take a two-games-to-none lead in their NL division series. Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer, and fellow slugger Prince Fielder added an RBI single for Milwaukee. But the brawny Brewers, especially Lucroy, also excel at the little things. Lucroy's safety squeeze keyed a five-run sixth inning and came right after Diamondbacks reliever Brad Ziegler became angry about a balk call.

MILWAUKEE - Prince Fielder hit three home runs in a game for the first time in his career, including a two-run shot in the seventh inning that lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night. Fielder's final homer was the least impressive of the three, barely sailing over the wall in right field after he hit monster shots in the third and fifth innings. But it was the last one that made the biggest difference, breaking a 4-4 tie. With the win, the Brewers crept closer to securing home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

CAME ACROSS a story that the Milwaukee Brewers were having a bobblehead night for Hank. Being a bobblehead collector, I naturally thought "Milwaukee . . . Hank . . . How cool is that? A bobblehead night for Hank Aaron. " Wrong! Hank is a dog that wandered into Maryvale Baseball Park, the Brewers' spring-training site in Phoenix, last month and soon after was taken to the vet by Brewers staff members. After Hank was treated for lacerations on his underside, staffers bought him a bed, set him up in the office and took turns taking him home at night.

The sage advice from the grandfather and former major-leaguer was simple but poignant. "If you can hit, they will find a spot for you," said Don Money, a/k/a the grandfather. Through the years, the grandson has certainly taken his grandfather's advice. And now the grandson is one of the most feared hitters in South Jersey. Millville junior third baseman Buddy Kennedy has been torching some of South Jersey's finest pitchers this season. When the high school season ends, he will be going around the country in high-profile baseball tournaments or tryouts.

The Phillies waited two months for what finally happened Sunday afternoon in an 8-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park. They had played 56 games - a span that covered 504 innings - without scoring four runs in an inning. And then the Phillies broke through, scoring five runs in the fifth inning to turn the series finale into a rout. Tommy Joseph - whom the Brewers chose to pitch to after intentionally walking Maikel Franco - touched off the rally with an RBI double.

MILWAUKEE - The improbable happened on the 149th try, in the fifth inning of the 17th game. Odubel Herrera ripped a single to center. Freddy Galvis slashed a triple to right. Maikel Franco crushed a high fly that plopped just beyond the left-field wall. The Phillies had done it. For the first time in 2016, they scored three runs in an inning. Remember a 5-2 Phillies win Friday over the Brewers for an veritable offensive explosion. These Phillies are challenged - their .271 on-base percentage entering Friday ranked worst in baseball - but they are only one game below .500.

No double switch here: the Milwaukee Brewers say it's still the same Hank the dog. The Brewers confirmed that the team's furry, four-legged mascot is the same bichon frise mix that walked on to the team's spring training complex in Phoenix two years ago. Recent social media-fueled rumors speculated that the Brewers had weaved a tale of deceit because of dramatic changes in Hank's appearance. But times have changed since Hank joined the club as a malnourished stray. Hank has been adopted by a team executive.

One hundred and 99 days ago, the Phillies introduced Andy MacPhail as their president-in-waiting, the successor to Hall of Fame executive Pat Gillick. MacPhail, a lifelong baseball man who had stepped away from the game for more than three years, sat down that night in a private box at Citizens Bank Park to get a closer look at what he was getting himself into. The Phillies were beginning a four-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers and even though they owned the worst record in baseball, the Brewers were only two games better in the National League standings.

MILWAUKEE - The Phillies' lineup was missing its two best hitters on Sunday afternoon. It seemed to be without much of a pulse, too. The team's offense was lifeless in a 6-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. Chase Utley was given the day off as trade rumors continued to swirl. Maikel Franco missed his fourth straight game with a sore right wrist. Both players should return to the lineup Tuesday, unless Utley is traded. The Phillies struck out 11 times. Their lone run came on a ninth-inning homer by Andres Blanco.

MILWAUKEE - As the trade rumors continue to swirl around longtime Phillies second baseman Chase Utley, the 36-year-old again found his name written in atop the team's lineup card. And he continued to show teams interested in his services that he can maybe still hit a little in the majors. Utley went 4-for-5 with a double and three singles, including an RBI single in the ninth. Outside of Utley, however, the Phillies offense was listless in a 3-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers last night, wasting a strong outing by starting pitcher Adam Morgan.

Teams around baseball will use at least part of this month to decide if they are buyers or sellers. The Phillies have known their category since October, and they can only hope their tradable assets stay healthy and perform effectively. Aaron Harang, who five weeks ago boasted a sub-2.00 ERA, has lowered his trade value over his last six starts. The 37-year-old righthander's post-May regression continued Wednesday night in a 9-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park.

After the Phillies officially hired Andy MacPhail to become the team's president after the season, the new executive saw firsthand how much work needs to be done. Trailing by 4-1 through four innings, the Milwaukee Brewers came back to defeat the Phillies, 7-4, on Monday night in a battle of baseball's loss leaders before 18,423 at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies (27-51) have lost four of the last five since their three-game winning streak last week. MacPhail will serve as a special assistant to president Pat Gillick for three months before he takes over, and his main task will be to determine how many true keepers the Phillies have.
