Monday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Brewers continued their mediocre play on the road this weekend. They were swept by San Francisco in a three-game series that culminated in Sunday's 5-4 Giants win. Milwaukee remains 1 1/2 games behind the Cubs in the NL Central. The Brewers have lost four in a row and seven of their last 10.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Brewers face the division-leading Cubs starting Tuesday. But first they get a day of rest. At one point this season the Brewers were 14 games over .500. But after losing four in a row, they've dropped back down to the .500 mark. Manager Ned Yost is at a loss of words to explain his team's decline.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Packers are down to three quarterbacks in camp -- Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers and Paul Thompson. Favre and Rodgers are expected to be the only quarterbacks kept on the final roster. Receiver Carlyle Holiday says he could play quarterback if the need arises. That was his position at Notre Dame.

HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) -- Madison (Wisconsin) native Steve Stricker birdied four of his last five holes to win at The Barclays yesterday. That gave him a 2-under 69 and a two-shot victory over K.J. Choi. He had gone 6 1/2 years and 146 tournaments without winning. With his voice choking and tears streaming down his face, he said it was hard -- but it was fun.
