Watch as the Brewers’ sluggish infielders turn a routine grounder from Wilin Rosario into a three-run swing in Sunday afternoon’s series finale at Milwaukee’s Miller Park …

If the Brewers looked there like a team that has played 20 games in 20 days, it’s because they have.

They still boast the largest division lead in the major leagues through the first half of the 2014 season.

The Astros announced on Monday that the club claimed reliever Buddy Boshers off waivers from the Twins.

Boshers, 29, had been designated for assignment by the Twins last week. Across parts of three seasons, the lefty compiled a 4.59 ERA with a 78/25 K/BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings in the big leagues.

Boshers has handled left-handed hitters much better than right-handed hitters, holding them to a career .621 and .793 OPS, respectively. If he makes the 25-man roster out of spring training, the Astros may use him as a LOOGY — a left-handed one-out guy. As of right now, Tony Sipp is the only lefty in the ‘pen.
