Last call

• Brewers games have turned into something of a home run derby of late, with Milwaukee pitchers "leading" the National League with 71 home runs allowed through the first two months. The Cardinals have been the stingiest staff, allowing only 32 homers through the end of May.

"Our ballpark is a good hitting park, so we're going to do it there," Roenicke said. "Some of it is that, but we're making bad pitches."

• The Brewers' 6-22 record in May was even more damaging when you consider the NL Central featured baseball's three biggest winners in the month. The Cardinals were 20-7, the Reds were 19-8 and the Pirates were 19-9. The best team outside of the NL Central was Cleveland, which went 18-12.

The Brewers, meanwhile, matched the Marlins for the Majors' worst May record. Milwaukee fell from 1/2 game behind first-place St. Louis on the morning of May 1 to 15 games back entering Saturday.
