Game Thread #13: Brewers (4-8) at Phillies (5-6)

New, 352 comments

At my house, we're starting a new tradition: Mac and Cheese Tuesdays. Here's the recipe I'm trying tonight. I'm hoping the Brewers will also start a new tradition tonight: winning on Tuesdays. They're 0-2 this season.

They're also 0-2 so far in games started by Manny Parra, who has picked up the loss in both games. He's lasted just 10.1 innings over two starts and posted a 6.97 ERA. Parra has struggled mightily against the Phils in his career, having completed just 2.1 innings over two regular seasonappearances (including one start) and posting a 27.00 ERA. On the bright side, he did hold the Phillies scoreless in 2.1 innings over two relief appearances in the 2008 NLDS.

For the Phillies, 46 year old Jamie Moyer will make his 587th career start. For context, the entire Brewer rotation has 625 career starts. He's 1-1 with a 6.55 ERA in 2009. Tonight is his 23rd career appearance and 18th start against the Brewers, and he's posted a 3.63 ERA in 111.2 IP.

2B Rickie Weeks
