Brewers shut-out Braves 2-0
MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee’s Wily Peralta allowed just two hits in seven innings, as the Brewers shut-out the Atlanta Braves last night.
Shortstop Jean Segura hit his 11 home run of the season in the fifth inning.
With the win, Milwaukee extends its home win streak against the Braves to seven. Brewers hope to continue that streak this afternoon with RHP Donovan Hand slated to make his first major league start.
Fans of the old Milwaukee Braves can finally get their hands on prime memorabilia from one of the team’s top pitchers. The son of the late Hall-of-Famer Warren Spahn saved hundreds of items from his playing days in the 1950’s-and-‘60’s. They’ve been in Greg Spahn’s attic for years. Now, they’ll go up for sale in a live auction July 15th-and-16th at the All-Star Game’s Fan-Fest in New York. Hunt Auctions is running the sale. Pre-bidding is open at HuntAuctions.com. Experts say Warren Spahn’s 1957 Cy Young award is expected to go for up to $125,000. His jersey with the former Boston Braves could fetch 40-thousand. Spahn’s 1958 National League championship ring and his Hall-of-Fame induction ring could go for around 35-thousand each. Warren Spahn was the ace of the Milwaukee Braves’ staff from 1953-through-’64, with a record of 234-138. Both Spahn’s son and the Hunt Auction house say the memorabilia represents one of the most durable players in an age when pitchers were not held back by things like pitch counts. Spahn threw 22 complete games in his final season, at age 42.
