Just because it's an off day for the big league club doesn't mean that you have to take the night off, too -- there's plenty of action around the farm tonight for the Brewer affiliates (and, if I did this right, the links will take you the audio feeds for the respective clubs):
The Sounds host the Iowa Cubs at 7:05 p.m. CDT. Big right-hander Josh Butler (5-5, 4.81, 19 GS, 64 K, 49 BB) is on the bump for Nashville, and the Sounds will face Cubs righty Jay Jackson (5-8, 6.18, 17 GS, 59 K, 30 BB).
Brevard County visits Charlotte at 5:30 p.m. CDT. Tyler Thornburg (2-2, 1.57, 5 GS, 32 K, 13 BB for Brevard after being promoted from Wisconsin) starts for the Manatees, while Alex Koronis (7-5, 4.20, 17 GS, 83 K, 29 BB) is on the mound for the Stone Crabs.
The Timber Rattlers wrap up a series at Great Lakes tonight at 6:05 p.m. CDT. Wisconsin sends right-hander Matthew Miller (3-4, 4.74, 13 GS, 45 K, 32 BB) to the hill, while lefty Greg Wilborn (2-3, 6.85, 6 GS, 38 K, 28 BB) takes the ball for the Loons.
Helena welcomes the Casper Ghosts to town for a three-game series that begins at 8:05 p.m. CDT. Andrew Moye (3-0, 4.05, 6 GS, 22 K, 8 BB) starts for the Baby Brewers, while Geoff Parker (1-4, 8.06, 5 GS, 14 K, 10 BB) tries to haunt Helena's dreams.
The Stars are off tonight; they open a series in Birmingham against the Barons tomorrow night.
Enjoy the games!
