State Senator Joe Leibham to not seek recount for last week's election

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Joe Leibham will not seek a recount for last week's 6th House District Republican primary. The Sheboygan state senator lost the four man race to State Senator Glenn Grothman by 219 votes, which was close enough to ask for a recount that would have been paid for by local government units. In a statement made Friday afternoon, Leibham said he has contacted Grothman about his decision and wished him well in the November general election.  He adds he is happy of the ...

Brewers Call Up Nelson, Lucroy To Start in All Star Game

MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Prospect Jimmy Nelson will start in Marco Estrada's place on Saturday, when the Brewers host Saint Louis.  The Brewers' called up Nelson Thursday from Triple-"A" Nashville, and sent Estrada to the bullpen after he gave up a Major League-high 27 homers so far this season.  Skipper Ron Roenicke saw it as a way to improve the team, which has lost nine-of-its-last-10 and a six-game division lead over the second-place Cardinals has dwindled down to just two.  Nelson has been nothing short of spectacular at Triple-"A" with a 10-2 record, a 1.46 E-R-A, and 114 strikeouts in 111 innings.  He has not given up a run in his last 22 innings.  And Nelson recorded his first Major League win in May in a spot-start at Miami.  To make room for Nelson on the Milwaukee roster, the Brewers put reliever Wei-Chung Wang on the 15-day disabled list with what was termed as shoulder tightness.  Wang has only pitched in blowout games, but as a Rule-Five draft pick, the Brewers must keep him at the big league level all season. Meanwhile, Milwaukee will now have three starters in Tuesday night's Major League All-Star Game.  Jonathan Lucroy will be the starting National League catcher after Yadier Molina, of the Cardinals, went on the disabled list with a torn ligament in his right thumb.  Molina will have surgery today, and will be out for 8 to 12 weeks.  Fans elected Molina to start in the Mid-Summer Classic.  Lucroy was second in the fan vote at catcher, and he topped the players' ballots, which put him in a position to replace Molina.  The Brewers already had the most National League starters as fans elected third baseman Aramis Ramirez and outfielder Carlos Gomez.
