Tuesday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Prince Fielder hit his NL-leading 48th home run and the Milwaukee Brewers moved within three games of first place, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 13-5. Brewers manager Ned Yost was ejected for the second consecutive day even though his team gained a half-game on the Chicago Cubs in the N-L Central.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers signed a familiar face. The team picked up wide receiver Shaun Bodiford. Bodiford played three games for the Packers in 2006 before being placed on injured reserve. The second-year player appeared in all four of Green Bay's preseason games but was cut and signed with Washington.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks have requested waivers on backup guard Lynn Greer. The 6-1, 175-pound Greer appeared in 41 games with the Bucks last season, averaging four-point-one points and one-point-three assists per game. He had a career-high 19 points and four assists against New Orleans/Oklahoma City April third.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Big Ten is in disarray and both Wisconsin and its opponent this week are in a position to capitalize on it. Both Number 9-Wisconsin and unranked Michigan State enter Saturday's game undefeated. But Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema (BEE'-leh-mah) doesn't want talk of who's in the best position to win the conference, especially this early in the season. He says all he's focused on is playing Michigan State this weekend. He has plenty of praise for the Spartan's head coach Mark Dantonio.
