The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players. Marco Estrada (Glendale Community College, 2003) starting pitcher, Milwaukee Brewers: Estrada and Milwaukee are probably glad that May concluded Friday. The Brewers finished the month 6-22 while sinking to the bottom of the National League's Central Division. Estrada, a right-hander and a former All-Western State Conference honoree at Glendale Community College, has pitched reasonably well in his last two starts for the Brewers.

With the game all but over, the Milwaukee Brewers called on Glendale Community College product Marco Estrada to pitch the eighth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game Three of the National League Division Series. Estrada came in with his team down, 8-1, but didn't let it get any worse. The former Vaquero faced four batters -- Arizona's No. 6, 7, 8 and 9 hitters. Estrada struck out Chris Young and surrendered a single to Ryan Roberts. He bounced back and struck out Gerardo Parra on four pitches, before getting John McDonald to hit an easy grounder to first baseman Prince Fielder to send the game into the ninth inning.

GLENDALE — On the advice of a former minor-league pitching coach, Marco Estrada found a new home Wednesday afternoon. Estrada, a former Glendale Community College pitcher, was claimed by the Milwaukee Brewers from the Washington Nationals after the right-hander spent parts of the past two seasons with Washington. Rick Gale, who served as pitching coach last season with the Syracuse Chiefs, the triple-A affiliate of the Nationals, worked closely with Estrada before Estrada was called up late in the 2008 and 2009 campaigns.

The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players. Marco Estrada (Glendale Community College, 2003) starting pitcher, Milwaukee Brewers: It's been a season to forget for the Milwaukee Brewers, who are 52-68 and have been in last place throughout the bulk of the season in the National League Central Division. Estrada, a former All-Western State Conference pick, spent about two months on the disabled list with a back injury and is looking to finish off the season on a positive note.

The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players. Marco Estrada (Glendale Community College, 2003) starting pitcher, Milwaukee Brewers: Even when he's not battling injuries, Estrada still can't seem to catch a break on the mound. An example came in his latest start against the host St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday. Estrada, 30, had a no-hitter entering the sixth inning before being struck by a come backer off the bat of Matt Carpenter that went for a hit. Estrada yielded one run and two hits and struck out six over 6 2/3 innings, but didn't factor into the decision.

The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players. Brandon McCarthy (Glendale native) starting pitcher, Oakland Athletics: After spending nearly two months on the disabled list because of a strained right shoulder, McCarthy has rounded back into form with two quality appearances. However, he's encountered some tough luck, including seeing his career-best six-game unbeaten streak come to a close Wednesday night against the host Kansas City Royals. McCarthy, a right-hander who was the Athletics' opening-day starter, is looking to keep Oakland in the hunt for one of two available wild-card spots in the American League.

The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players. Brandon McCarthy (Glendale native) starting pitcher, Oakland Athletics: While the Athletics have been eliminated from playoff contention, it hasn't deterred McCarthy from continuing to excel on the mound. The right-hander has gotten stronger during his first season with the Athletics and might get in two more starts before the season concludes Sept. 27. In his latest outing Thursday against the red-hot Detroit Tigers, McCarthy proved to be at his best.

The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players. Marco Estrada (Glendale Community College, 2003) pitcher, Milwaukee Brewers: Estrada showed just how versatile he can be while performing for the first-place Brewers of the National League's Central Division. On Saturday, Estrada gave the Brewers exactly what they needed as a starter after spending most of the season coming out of the bullpen. Making a spot-start Saturday, Estrada more than held his own. Estrada surrendered one hit in five innings and three relievers backed him up in Milwaukee's 1-0 home victory against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The following are highlights from the 2012 season for local athletes playing Major League Baseball. ESTRADA MAKES PITCH TO BE STARTER At the onset of the 2012 season, the Milwaukee Brewers seemed to be set on using former Glendale Community College standout Marco Estrada as a long reliever/spot starter out of the bullpen. The club may have to reassess those plans going forward, as Estrada proved himself to be a more than viable option for every-fifth-day duty when he was thrust into the Brewers' rotation after returning from a stint on the disabled list due to a strained right quadriceps on June 26. Sitting at 0-3 with a 4.50 earned-run average to that point, Estrada went on to finish the season 5-7 with a 3.64 ERA, striking out 143 batters to just 29 walks.

Whether it was at the major or minor league level, plenty of former area baseball players competed on professional diamonds not only across the United States, but in Canada and Mexico. There were a number of story lines along the way, as the 2013 campaign saw former Glendale Community College and high school standouts making contributions in professional baseball. It wasn't only on the field where stories were made, as off-the-field issues followed a handful of players throughout the year.
