Here is the latest Wisconsin sports news from The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Marco Estrada struck out 11 in eight shutout innings, Corey Hart homered twice and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Houston Astros 9-5 Saturday night. The Brewers began the day barely in the playoff race.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee rookie right-hander Wily Peralta still has soreness in his right biceps and won't pitch Tuesday night against San Diego, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Saturday. The 23-year-old Peralta, the team's top pitching prospect, was removed after pitching five and one third scoreless innings Thursday night at Cincinnati.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Seattle Seahawks fan is trying to smooth things over with Wisconsin after the disputed touchdown call that decided Monday night's Packer game. Rudy McCoy-Pantoja Junior, a landscaper in Seattle, says he wanted to send local beer, smoked salmon and kringles to Green Bay's mayor. But Jim Schmitt wouldn't accept it. His office says the mayor doesn't participate with gift exchanges during the regular season. So McCoy-Pantoja Junior initiated an exchange of gifts with Delavan in southeastern Wisconsin.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Taylor Martinez guided four straight scoring drives against a tiring Wisconsin defense in the second half to lead Number 22 Nebraska's comeback from a 17-point deficit to defeat the Badgers 30-27 Saturday night. Danny O'Brien, who replaced Joel Stave, tried to bring back the Badgers with under 3 minutes to play. But Montee Ball fumbled at midfield on a fourth-and-1 in Lincoln.
