If the Brewers will ever--ever!--have momemtum heading into a game, it would be after a game like yesterday's. Scroll down a bit to see a couple things I posted about that incredible game.
Today ought to be a little trickier. I was looking forward to the opportunity to tee off on Eric Milton, but an injury has him scratched. Instead...we get Aaron Harang, staff ace and--in my foggy recollection, anyway--Brewer killer. We've got an ace of our own in Doug Davis, but his last couple starts haven't inspired a lot of confidence.
That doesn't mean Doug can't go out there and put up something just as good as Dave Bush did yesterday. After all, he is pitching for a contract. If Doug gives us a quality start today, we should all feel really, really good about this pitching staff.
The game starts at 1:05 CT...here are your starting lineups:
|Quinton McCracken - CF||Brady Clark - CF|
|Felipe Lopez - SS||Bill Hall - SS|
|Rich Aurilia - 1B||Geoff Jenkins - RF|
|Adam Dunn - LF||Carlos Lee - LF|
|Austin Kearns - RF||Prince Fielder - 1B|
|Edwin Encarnacion - 3B||Rickie Weeks - 2B|
|Brandon Phillips - 2B||Corey Koskie - 3B|
|Jason LaRue - C||Damian Miller - C|
|Aaron Harang - P||Doug Davis - P|
