Carlos Gomez is back in the lineup for the Brewers after serving a three-game suspension for his role in the Pirates/Brewers brawl on Easter. The Brewers have gone 2-1 in his absence, though he would have missed at least one game anyway due to a sore back.

Khris Davis, meanwhile, is out of the lineup as Elian Herrera takes his place in left field. Herrera had a pair of doubles yesterday against the Cubs, so it looks like Ron Roenicke is going with the hot hand. Despite a game-winning hit a couple days ago, Davis has just a 531 OPS in May. Davis has been getting frequent days off, but so far nothing has helped him break out of his ongoing slump. That just means more chances for Herrera, who has seen action every game since his most recent call-up.

Matt Garza wlll, of course, be pitching against his old team.  He had been a member of the Cubs from 2011 until mid-2013, when he was traded to the Rangers. Garza has had a couple of great starts for the Brewers so far, but he's had a couple of duds as well. All that adds up to a 4.98 ERA, which we should expect to see lower as the season wears on. He's in a good position for a decent start today as he faces the anemic Cubs lineup.

Go Brewers!
