I don't know about you, but I've had a long weekend and I'm ready to put my feet up and catch a baseball game.
While it had been previously reported that Carlos Villanueva would get the start today, Brewers.com is reporting Mark DiFelice will make his first start of the spring instead. He's been one of the best pitchers in Brewer camp this spring, allowing just one earned run on two hits in eight innings of work wrapped around a scoreless appearance in thew WBC. He's struck out eight and has yet to walk a batter.
For the Giants, it's Jonathan Sanchez getting the nod. He's making just his second appearance of the spring, and his first start. He allowed one earned run in three innings his last time out. If the Giants want to leave Sanchez in Brewer camp at the end of today's game, the Brewers may allow them to take Tony Gwynn Jr. home with them.
Game time is at 3:05 today from Maryvale, and the game is on WTMJ with Cory and Ueck.
Sunday's Game Thread is now open.
