Game Thread #66: Brewers (34-31) at Astros (33-33)

For those of us who like to win series, there are two phrases that go together quite nicely: "rubber game" and "Ben Sheets."  I would imagine "Brian Moehler" does not evoke quite the same confidence in an Astros fan, though Moehler has been solid in the rotation this year, including seven shutout innings against the Cards last weekend.

Not-so-fun matchup fact: Sheets has faced Berkman an astonishing 69 times, and the Fat Puma has managed an 1.105 OPS against him.  Actually, this whole lineup looks like they're going to have a leisurely afternoon teeing off on Sheets.  One outing isn't going to adjust the numbers too far downward, but I trust that Ben will give it a try.

Game time is 1:05 CT, and here's the BR Game Preview.

Go Brewers!
