Video: Brewers broadcast booth sends fan a beer after he loses his in a foul ball scrum

This is fun. During the Brewers-Jays game, a fan had his beer — which he just bought, it appears — spilled all over the place when another fan went lunging for a foul ball. You had to feel for the guy. The Brewers broadcast booth sure did. They sent him a new one:

I’m not 100% sure who the broadcasters are there. I think it’s Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder, but Brewers fans can correct me if I’m wrong.

Good on ya, guys. I mean, the fan who spilled his brew should’ve been the one to replace it, but sometimes you gotta just step in and do justice when common citizens won’t.

Freddie Freeman’s X-rays come back negative

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
