Game Thread #-4: Diamondbacks (11-19) at Brewers (18-10-3)

New, 106 comments

In the Brewers' penultimate Cactus League game, they will try to hold onto their half game lead for the NL's best spring record.

Today in Maryvale it's Dave Bush hosting Dan Haren. Bush is having easily the best spring of any Brewer starting pitcher, having posted a 2.70 ERA in seven appearances (six starts), and allowing just 23 hits and four walks in 26.2 innings. This will be his last start of the spring: he'll pitch an inning on Opening Day to stay sharp for his first regular season start a week from Saturday.

Dan Haren will make his eighth start today, and he's pitched eight more spring innings (25.2) than any other Diamondback. He comes in carrying a 4.56 ERA but has struck out 29 batters in 25.2 innings.

Via Adam McCalvy, here's today's lineup:

Rickie Weeks  2B
Brad Nelson  LF
J.J. Hardy  SS
Prince Fielder  1B
Corey Hart  RF
Mike Cameron  CF
Bill Hall  3B
Jason Kendall  C
Dave Bush  RHP

If you're within broadcast range of Milwaukee, you can catch today's game on WMLW. If you're not in range of WMLW but have MLB.TV, you can catch it there too. If neither of those are an option, Kent Sommerfeld will have the call on Brewers.com, and even if you can't do that, you can follow the game via Gameday at this link.

Wednesday's Game Thread is now open.
