Here is the latest Wisconsin sports news from The Associated Press:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ryan Braun's two-run homer helped the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 last night. Mike Fiers picked up his first win over the season after allowing one run and five hits in seven innings. Dodgers' outfielder Andre Ethier picked up his NL-leading 43rd RBI.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy will miss at least six weeks after having his broken hand put in a cast yesterday. Lucroy says he was injured over the weekend when a suitcase fell on his hand in his hotel room. Rookie Martin Maldonado was behind the player yesterday after he was called up from Triple-A.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Donald Driver is suggesting he has a deal in place to return to the Green Bay Packers. Driver said on his Twitter account yesterday "It is now true. Packer for life." The wide receiver has a year left on his contract, but his return to the team wasn't considered likely unless he restructured his deal.
WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) — Given his family's history in the Indianapolis 500, Michael Andretti understands why his son, Marco, was so frustrated during Sunday's race. Marco Andretti led 59 laps during the race, but fell back in the field and crashed on lap 188. Michael Andretti knows there's only one way for his son to get over his frustration at Indy: Win it.
