Brewers place Jonathan Villar on DL, call up top prospect Lewis Brinson

In that game, he pitched seven innings, allowing one hit and no runs while striking out 11 and walking three. "I'm just watching in amazement as to what he can do".

Watching Ray pitch this season, "I've learned he can make adjustments; he's got tremendous aptitude, " Lovullo said.

"He struggled with his rhythm early, then I thought after the third inning he really cruised in the fourth and fifth inning", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

Keon Broxton homered in the ninth for Milwaukee.

Anderson came into the game with a 5-1 record and a 22-inning scoreless streak that was immediately ended in the first inning by a Jake Lamb groundout RBI that scored David Peralta.

Villar had two hits and an RBI before leaving the game.

Russell returns to Cubs' lineup • Shortstop Addison Russell returned to the Chicago lineup Saturday, two days after Major League Baseball began an investigation in the wake of domestic violence allegations.




Outfield prospect Brett Phillips had a short stay with the Milwaukee Brewers in his first trip to the big leagues. "He's impacted me as a first-year manager in a very positive way, and it was a tough conversation, it was tough to let him go", Lovullo said.

Diamondbacks: RHP Taijuan Walker (finger blister) threw a bullpen session on Friday, with his right index finger still bandaged. Ray is 1-1 with a 3.55 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers. Godley is 2-1 with a 2.44 ERA in seven starts, and opponents are battling only.203 against him.

"Couple with a little uptick in his velocity and you've got a pretty good pitcher, one that's tough for hitters to handle". "We've got depth. We've got guys that understand their roles. You wait for these moments and you can tell by the way that he walks out to the mound, you can tell by the way he's preparing himself in between starts he's got tremendous focus and he's getting ready every fifth day to do something like this". OF A.J. Pollock's next step in his return from a groin injury is running the bases, which he will do this week.

The teams split the first two games of the series. Walker is on track to start on Wednesday in Detroit.

The team also reinstated catcher Welington Castillo from the 10-day disabled list. With a crowded upcoming schedule, including a doubleheader Tuesday in St. Louis, "There certainly will be spots for him to play", Counsell said. Cespedes will not start the second game Saturday but could be available to pinch-hit.

Keuchel has been one of the best pitchers in the majors this season, posting a 9-0 record and a 1.67 ERA, both MLB bests.
