Today's lessons include the MLB draft, the batting lineup, and more.

Yesterday's Results

Brewers 6, Twins 2

Matt Garza finally put together a good start while getting some run support. He pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out eight and walking two while giving up six hits. Meanwhile, the offense came together,  taking a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning and expanding it to 4-0 from a Mark Reynolds home run. Jonathan Lucroy also added a solo home run in the win.

We got an intro to the MLB Draft yesterday.

We're now two days away from the MLB First Year Player Draft. There's a lot to know about the draft before it starts on Thursday. Yesterday, Derek ran down how the draft works and what to expect. There's a lot to know about the draft, including how the picks will work, how much the Brewers have to spend on signings, and the extra picks the Brewers will get. It's good to know all of this as you prepare for the draft at the end of this week.
