The Brewers continue their interleague road trip in Detroit, assuming the weather cooperates. The last time they visited Michigan, they participated in an eventful series-- after being no-hit by Justin Verlander, they won a season-turning game on a Bill Hall homer. Hopefully things are a bit less tumultuous this time around.

Armando Galarraga has not been particularly effective so far this year. He has a 5.66 ERA, 5.92 FIP, and has walked more and struck out fewer batters than in his effective season a year ago. His slider, which was very effective a year ago, has not been as strong this season. He is throwing harder this year, with an average velocity around 91 mph.

After the off day we'll reset the bullpen rest situation. I'll only list the pitchers who threw on Wednesday:

  • Seth McClung pitched 2 1/3 innings (48 pitches)
  • Trevor Hoffman pitched 2/3 of an inning (12 pitches)
  • Mark DiFelice pitched 1 1/3 innings (16 pitches)
  • Mitch Stetter pitched 2/3 of an inning (20 pitches)

Gametime is scheduled for 6:05, but we'll follow the weather. Go Brewers!
