Milwaukee Brewers (13-12) at Pittsburgh Pirates (12-12)

Yovani Gallardo (3-1, 2.86 ERA) takes on Paul Maholm (3-0, 3.09 ERA) in a matchup of aces. Last Wednesday Gallardo dominated the Pirates, going 8 innings and striking out eleven. Oh, and he hit the game-winning home run, too.

Hopefully the rest of the lineup can get him some runs tonight. It'll be tough though, as Ryan Braun is (sop to stray Pirates fans: scared to play after his comments last week) still unable to play thanks to the intercostal of doom. Bill Hall gets the start in left field, the first time he's played the position in a regular season major league game. Casey McGehee makes his first start as a Brewer at third base.
