The world of sports is full of highs and lows, and that's no different here in southern Wisconsin.

It's been a rough week in Milwaukee.

The Brewers are off to their worst start ever, and with injuries mounting, it doesn't look like things are about to get any better. Is it time to blow everything up and start fresh?

And the Bucks are back in the NBA playoffs, but they're off to a rough start, falling behind 2-0 to the Chicago Bulls in their best-of-seven series. Can they turn things around or at least get one win back at home in the Bradley Center?

More locally, things are looking just fine. Janesville Craig hosted Sun Prairie in a battle of two of the top-five Division 1 baseball teams in the state Tuesday, and Parker is slated to play Sun Prairie on Thursday. We take a look at area teams that are ranked in both the baseball and softball coaches polls.

And we wrap things up by talking Janesville Jets for a few minutes. They won their first playoff series in franchise history last week and are back at the Janesville Ice Arena to kick off a best-of-five series with the Soo Eagles. They'll host games Friday and Saturday night at 7 p.m.

As always, our theme music is "Rock Hybrid" by Kevin MacLeod. Find more of his work at his website.
