Brewers' bullpen untouchable right now


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Six Brewers relievers combined to pitch six scoreless innings in Monday's 5-3, 12-inning win in St. Louis, the latest superb effort by Milwaukee's bullpen. The pen has a 2.18 ERA, third-best in the majors, and opponents are batting .195, lowest in the majors, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Closer Francisco Rodriguez and Will Smith have yet to allow an earned run, while Tyler Thornburg (0.71 ERA), Brandon Kintzler (1.29) and Zach Duke (1.46) have been lights out too.

"It's unbelievable the job the young guys in the bullpen are doing," said Rodriguez, who is 12 for 12 in save chances. "It's tremendous. ... It's an unbelievable first month. Even though it's still early, I like our chances because (my teammates) are hungry. They go out and compete every single day, which is something I'm proud of."

Brandon Kintzler emerges in Brewers' bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2013) Brewers reliever Brandon Kintzler has quietly turned in a nice stretch of relief appearances. The right-handed reliever has been scored upon just once in his last 17 outings, posting a 0.81 ERA and .110 opponents' batting average.

Kinztler has improved his ERA from 4.39 to 2.76 in his last 17 outings and has 18 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings in that span.

"He's another guy that throws strikes," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He has tremendous movement and velocity with his fastball. If you look at what left-handers are doing against him, they're under .200."

He is holding lefties to a .127 batting average, while right-handed batters are hitting .239.

"That's a little unusual with a sinker-baller," Roenicke said. "He's got a good changeup and a nice slider, and he must locate really well because you can't go through left-handed hitters like that unless you locate. When he's good, he keeps the ball down and gets a lot of ground balls."
