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.

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 - 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.

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.

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.

Colorado Rockies pitcher Jayson Aquino was taken to a hospital for tests after being hit in the head by a line drive during an intrasquad game Thursday. The lefthander didn't go down and was able to walk off the field after Rafael Ynoa's liner hit him just above the ear. Asked whether Aquino may have suffered a concussion, manager Walt Weiss called it a "possibility. " Niese MRI: No problems The New York Mets said an MRI on pitcher Jon Niese's ailing left shoulder did not show any major problems.

Today in an age suspicious of baseball executives like George Steinbrenner, Bill Veeck remains everyone's favorite owner. The man who sent a midget up to bat, the first American League executive to integrate baseball, Veeck was baseball's hustler par excellence. In his 1962 book, "Veeck as in Wreck," he says he had a plan to integrate baseball three years before Branch Rickey. He'd purchase the futile 1943 Phillies and stock the team with stars from the Negro Leagues, such as Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige and Monty Irvin.

MILWAUKEE - For the third day in a row, the Phillies looked like a winning team, from their timely hitting, bullpen pitching and overall play. All that said, their closer would like to find a new home at some point in the next 3 weeks. Following the Phillies' 4-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers last night, their third straight win over the team with the National League's best record, Jonathan Papelbon expressed his desire to move from the last-place team to a contender before the July 31 trade deadline.

MILWAUKEE - It was the best of times, it was the wurst of times. One minute I'm high-fiving cheering people in the stands, and the next thing I know, I'm a bum. Ah, the life of an athlete - or at least one wearing a giant foam costume for a day. Klement's, the well-known Milwaukee sausage maker, sponsors the nightly "Sausage Races" at Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, always in the middle of the sixth inning. This night, I was in it. With one out in the sixth, I donned "Frank," the Hot Dog outfit.

The Phillies fans were tough on Ryan Braun. The Milwaukee Brewers rightfielder was even tougher on the Phillies. The louder the booing, the farther the ball traveled all over Citizens Bank Park on a day when Braun personally ruined the Phillies' home opener. He entered the game Tuesday batting .150 with no RBIs in his first five games, but Braun belted three homers and drove in seven runs as the Brewers defeated the Phillies, 10-4. Phillies fans never lowered the volume on the boos directed at Braun, which turned out to be music to his ears.

RYAN BRAUN apparently has some work to do to repair his friendship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Describing himself as shocked and disappointed, Rodgers said yesterday after the Packers' first training-camp practice that Braun "looked at me in the eye on multiple occasions and repeatedly denied the allegations" that the Milwaukee Brewers slugger was using performance-enhancing drugs. Braun this week accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension after admitting to violating baseball's rules against using PEDs.

NEW YORK - Former National League MVP Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers was suspended without pay for the rest of the season and the postseason on Monday in the first penalty following Major League Baseball's investigation of the Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. Braun accepted the ban. "I am not perfect. I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions," he said in a statement provided by MLB. "This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it is has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers organization.

EVEN MINUS Ryan Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers' lineup hardly skipped a beat. Jonathan Lucroy had four hits, Yovani Gallardo threw eight scoreless innings and visiting Milwaukee beat the Miami Marlins, 6-1, last night for its fourth consecutive victory. Carlos Gomez had three hits and two RBI for Milwaukee, while Lucroy also drove in a pair of runs. Rickie Weeks homered among his three hits for the Brewers, who tied a season high with 16 hits despite playing without Braun after he aggravated his sore right thumb Sunday against the Phillies.

MILWAUKEE - Last season, the Phillies spent one day above third place in the National League East. That day was the first day of the season. With a 5-1 victory Thursday over the Milwaukee Brewers, these Phillies can boast more. They have a winning record (31-30) for the first time in 2013 after recording their fifth consecutive win. They rendered a game played in front of a sparse crowd in a domed stadium meaningless with a quick start. They exuded control, a characteristic that has eluded this team for weeks.

The Phillies are coming up short in a number of areas these days. They're short on healthy bodies, and short on scoring runs. And on Saturday afternoon, they were short on luck, as they were the victim of a crucial call that the umpire crew chief admitted was blown. It all added up to a frustrating 4-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park. Milwaukee (21-33) entered town on Friday with a six-game losing streak but now has won two in a row. The Phillies might not have won this game, but they were justified in thinking they were owed at least extra innings.
