Game Thread #-8: Brewers (15-9-3) at Athletics (12-16)

New, 12 comments

The Brewers are getting hot at the right time. They're 10-3-1 in their last 14 games. However, one of those losses and the tie took place on the last two Saturdays.

The last time the Brewers won on a Saturday, Jeff Suppan led a 2-0 shutout victory over the Cubs. Suppan returns to the mound today to take on the Athletics. Suppan has a 5.06 ERA in 16 innings this spring, but he allowed just one hit in five innings of work in his last Cactus League start eleven days ago.

For the A's, it's former Brewer farmhand Dana Eveland. He's making his fifth start of the spring and already has three losses, posting a 5.02 ERA in 14.1 innings of work. Most of those runs, though, were allowed in a rough start on Monday, where the Cubs posted five earned runs against him on their way to a 20-5 victory.

At any rate, game time is 3:05 and today's game is on WTMJ. Via Adam McCalvy, here's today's lineup:

Rickie Weeks  2B
Chris Duffy  LF
J.J. Hardy  SS
Prince Fielder  1B
Mike Cameron  CF
Bill Hall  3B
Vinny Rottino  RF
Jason Kendall  C
Jeff Suppan  RHP
