Here’s the latest Wisconsin sports news from the Associated Press | State News


MILWAUKEE (AP) — Freddy Peralta topped over seven innings, Hunter Renfroe scored on crazy pitch and the Milwaukee Brewers twice knocked the Atlanta Braves 1-0. Peralta allowed two hits and a walk while striking out 10 and striking out his last 11 batters. It was the sixth time in Peralta’s career that he struck out 10 or more batters. He recorded his 500th career strikeout in the seventh when he retired Marcell Ozuna on a called third strike. The Brewers improved to 11-4 at home, the best mark in the National League.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Khris Middleton might not have been available for the Eastern Conference Finals even if the Milwaukee Bucks had made it that far. The three-time All-Star has missed the Bucks’ last 10 games after spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee in Game 2 of a first-round series against the Chicago Bulls. Middleton missed Milwaukee’s entire second-round series as the Boston Celtics beat the Bucks in seven games to advance to the conference finals starting Tuesday in Miami. Middleton’s injury has forced the Bucks to rely on Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday even more than usual.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Atlanta Braves woke up Monday to an extended power outage at their downtown Milwaukee hotel, which also left some without running water. Some players were unable to shower at the Pfister Hotel, which is already infamous among baseball players for being allegedly haunted. Bryce Harper, Michael Young and Pablo Sandoval are among the players who have claimed ghost encounters at the 129-year-old hotel. On Monday, the Braves were more concerned with switches than angry spirits.

UNDATED (AP) – A person familiar with the situation says Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander has agreed to the terms of a four-year, $84 million contract extension with a bonus of $30 million signing. The person spoke on condition of anonymity as the extension was not announced. ESPN first reported the deal. Alexander, 25, was a second-team selection in All-Pro voting in 2020 but played in just four regular-season games last year due to a shoulder injury. Alexander returned for the Packers’ playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He led the Packers in passes defended each of his first three seasons.
