Monday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Mason Crosby might have a hard time living up to expectations now. The rookie kicker's 42-yard field goal with two seconds left gave the Packers a 16-13 victory over the Eagles yesterday. Brett Favre jokes that Crosby better make them all now. Favre finished 23-of-42 for 206 yards and an interception.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers cornerback Al Harris is expected to get an MRI on his elbow today after taking a hit as a blocker on a first-quarter punt return. After yesterday's game he needed assistance getting his jersey and shoulder pads off in the locker room. The 10th-year veteran returned to the field in the second quarter despite having little range of motion.

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Brewers are only the third team in major league history to open a game with three straight home runs. Rickie Weeks, J.J. Hardy and Ryan Braun connected off Phil Dumatrait yesterday in Milwaukee's 10-5 victory over Cincinnati. Brewers ace Ben Sheets was the beneficiary of all those longballs, improving to 12-4.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Brewers open a three-game set today against the Pirates. Carlos Villanueva will get the start for Milwaukee. He's 7-3 with a 4.47 ERA. Pittsburgh counters with Tony Armas. The right-hander is 3-5 with a 6.49 ERA.
