Bob Uecker is touched the Milwaukee Brewers still Antworten

MILWAUKEE (AP) — consider him one of the boys.Last November http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , after the Brewers came within one game of going to the World Series, the players voted to give a full playoff share to their beloved radio play-by-play man. Uecker donated the $123,000 to charity.“To include me in that, I couldn’t believe it,” the 85-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel . “I’ve tried to make sure I thanked every one of them. When I talked to them about it, they said, ‘Ueck, that was no big deal. You were part of that.’ Still, I was shocked when they did it.”Uecker divided the money among the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of Milwaukee, Wounded Warriors and the Froedtert Cancer Center.After the Brewers clinched their first playoff berth in seven years with a 2-1 win over the Cardinals in St. Louis last September, a video showed players dumping champagne and beer on a grinning Uecker as he pumped his arms.Uecker did not plan to join the clubhouse celebration, but says he conceded under “threat” from the players.“The players told me if I didn’t come downstairs, they’d be coming up to the booth with champagne Danny Salazar Jersey ,” Uecker said. “I didn’t want them dumping stuff all over our equipment, so I had to go. I didn’t want somebody to get electrocuted.”Uecker, who has cut back on road trips but continues to call home games, is about to start his 49th season as a Brewers broadcaster. He has no plans to quit.“I’m comfortable but I also still feel good doing this,” told the Journal Sentinel. “If I get to the point where I’m an embarrassment on the air, not only to myself but the team, I would never continue.”The Milwaukee native has appeared in the movie “Major League,” the TV series “Mr. Belvedere” and commercials for Miller Lite, famous for his “I must be in the front row” quip. He recently filmed a scene for a new “Monsters Inc.” movie.But the former major league catcher always comes back to his love of baseball.“I loved doing all that other stuff but baseball is No. 1,” Uecker told the newspaper. “Always has been and always will be.”__ CINCINNATI (AP) — Hunter Dozier’s quiet night turned into a clutch, game-winning effort for the Kansas City Royals.Dozier led off the ninth inning with a tie-breaking home run, then teamed with shortstop Adalberto Mondesi for a key out in the bottom of the inning as the Royals beat the slumping Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Tuesday night.“It felt like a quiet night until the ninth,” said Dozier, who snapped a 0-for-17 skid with his homer to left field. “A lot happened in a short amount of time.”Dozier’s 11th homer of the season http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , off Raisel Iglesias (2-5), left Kansas City needing two wins in its last five games to avoid tying the franchise record of 106 losses in a season, set in 2005. The Royals (55-102) have won three of their last four games, after a five-game losing streak.The Reds had runners on first and second with one out in the ninth against closer Wily Peralta, but Mondesi fielded Scott Schebler’s grounder and threw to Dozier at third, forcing Brandon Dixon. Jose Peraza followed with a hard grounder that Dozier was able to knock down with a diving backhand stop, leaving the bases loaded. Joey Votto grounded out harmlessly, and Peralta earned his 14th save.“They made some good plays,” Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said. “I was shocked that Dozier got to that ball. I thought it was down the line and would at least tie the game.”Kansas City manager Ned Yost felt Dozier’s play on Schebler’s grounder to Mondesi was more difficult than it looked.“He went for the ball at first,” Yost said. “He had to peel back to get to the bag. His athleticism allowed him to do that.”Kevin McCarthy (5-4) walked the first batter he faced to lead off the eighth and the Reds ended up loading the bases with no outs on Votto’s checked-swing dribbler up the third base line. But Eugenio Suarez grounded into a force out at the plate, Scooter Gennett struck out and Phillip Ervin hit a fielder’s-choice grounder to Dozier, ending the threat.Cincinnati went 3-for-10 with runners in scoring position and now are 8-for-75 (.107) in that situation over their last 13 games. The slumping Reds (66-92) have lost four straight, all against teams with worse records than their own. The Reds have also lost five of six, and their interleague losing streak reached seven games.Ryan O’Hearn hit his 12th homer of the season Edwin Encarnacion Jersey , a two-run shot off Matt Harvey, in the fourth inning, to give the Royals a 3-0 lead. The Reds’ Dilson Herrera delivered a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the fifth before Gennett tripled and Ervin drove him in with the game-tying run in the seventhHarvey overcame a 51-minute rain delay with one out in the bottom of the third inning. He lasted five innings and gave up six hits and three runs with six strikeouts. The former Mets’ right-hander didn’t allow a walk. He has a 7-7 record and 4.46 ERA in 23 games with the Reds, and a 4.92 ERA overall in 2018.“It was frustrating,” Harvey said. “I was pretty sharp in the first three innings. After the delay, I wasn’t as sharp.The delay cost Eric Skoglund a shot at his second win of the season and first since April 28 against the White Sox. The Royals rookie, making his 12th start of 2018 and fourth since missing three months with a strained ulnar collateral ligament, didn’t return when play resumed.ROCKY TOPThe Reds announced that they were resuming an affiliation with Double-A Chattanooga. The Reds and Lookouts were affiliated from 1988 through 2008.IT’S LORENZENRHP Michael Lorenzen (3-2), trying to convince the Reds that he can make the conversion from reliever to starter, will get his third and final chance this season against the Pirates in Sunday’s series finale.NEW HIGHWhit Merrifield singled with one out in the fifth inning to extend his hitting streak to a season-high 15 games. The streak is the fourth of at least 12 games this season for Merrifield, the AL’s hits and stolen base leader going into Tuesday.UP NEXTRoyals: RHP Heath Fillmyer (3-2) will make his first career start against the Reds in his final 2018 start.Reds: LHP Cody Reed (1-2) makes his first career start against the Royals, who made him their second-round pick in the June 2013 draft.
