Danny Knobler of CBS Sports with the news:

The Brewers enter play today 73-87, a distant fourth place in the NL Central. Since the Brewers won 96 games and advanced to the NLCS in manager Ron Roenicke’s first year in 2011, the Brewers have declined in wins each of the past two years, but it is difficult to blame him for some or even most of the disappointment.

Houston’s Yordan Alvarez leaves game with ankle discomfort

HOUSTON — Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez left the Astros’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth inning with left ankle discomfort.

Alvarez, who is tied for second in the American League with 37 home runs, rolled his ankle running out of the box on a single in the first inning.

He looked to be in some pain as he jogged to first base and was checked on briefly by manager Dusty Baker and a trainer before remaining in the game. Serving as the designated hitter, he struck out in the third inning before being replaced by pinch-hitter David Hensley for his at-bat in the fifth.
