The Brewers have lost nine of their last 10, but shortstop Jean Segura’s outstanding play during the past week earned him National League Player of the Week honors for the period ending May 12.
In five games last week, Segura hit an NL-best .500 over 20 at-bats while leading the league in slugging percentage (.950) and on-base percentage (.545).
translation: the brewers pitching stinks but they have some guys in the field who can play.

Michael Roth pitched his first game above rookie ball on April 9, working five innings for the Class AA Arkansas Travelers. Three nights later, after a game in Frisco, Tex., Roth was called into an office with Manager Tim Bogar and the pitching coach, Mike Hampton. He had no reason to expect what was coming.
“I kind of thought I was in trouble,” Roth said over the phone last week. “I was like, ‘Oh, God, what did I do?’ ”
Roth had done enough in that game — and had enough rest — to earn a promotion to the major league team, the Los Angeles Angels. He became the first American Leaguer from the 2012 draft class to reach the majors, and the second player over all, after pitcher Paco Rodriguez of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
But Rodriguez was a second-round pick. Roth was a ninth-rounder, taken 297th over all as a senior out of South Carolina.
