UPDATES & NEWS
Francisco Rodriguez picked up his league-leading 10th save after throwing a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts against the Cubs on Friday.
The early season dominance continued in the final frame for the Brewers on Friday night, as Rodriguez improved to 10-for-10 in save opportunities. The Brewers originally intended to move Jim Henderson back into the closer role once he worked out a few issues, but that is not going to happen K-Rod continues to pitch at this high of a level. Through 13.0 innings, Rodriguez has yet to allow an earned run while sporting a 13.85 K/9.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
