The Brewers hope to avoid a sweep to the Angels today.
Kyle Lohse (3.39 ERA, 4.19 FIP) will try to help on the mound today. It's that point in the season where it's tough to really say much about Brewers' pitchers that you haven't already heard 27 times. He did have perhaps his worst start since joining the Brewers in his last outing. He gave up 13 hits and five runs in 5.1 innings against the Pirates. Hopefully he doesn't do that again.
Chris Iannetta is the only Angels' hitter to face Lohse at least ten times. Over 13 PA, Iannetta has a .375/.615/.500 line.
For the Angels, pricey free agent acquisition C.J. Wilson (3.36 ERA, 3.32 FIP) gets the start. Wilson is in the second year of a five year, $75 million contract. Unlike other Angels free agents, Wilson has actually been effective for Los Angeles. He has been especially good since the beginning of July, posting a 2.92 ERA over 10 starts, including one outing where he gave up six runs over four innings.
Wilson throws five pitches; A 91 MPH four seamer (33%), an 83 MPH slider (20%), a 92 MPH two seamer (17%), a 78 MPH curveball (14%), and an 89 MPH cutter (11%).
Over 18 PA, Yuniesky Betancourt has hit .278/.278/.333 against Wilson.
