Game Thread #-27: Brewers (3-3) at Padres (1-3)

New, 132 comments

After vanquishing our Cactus League money-grubbing rivals from the North Side yesterday, today the Brewers head to Peoria with a chance to go over .500 for the first time this spring.

Join us at 2 as Yovani Gallardo makes his second appearance of the spring, facing off against half the Padres. The bad news is, it's likely the good not altogether terrible half, as this is the home portion of a split squad day for the Friars.

After the jump: pitching match-ups, lineups, and, if you're good children, maybe a couple game notes.

Gallardo was solid in his spring training debut against the A's, putting up two scoreless innings while striking out two.  If yesterday's game was a sign of things to come, YoGa should probably go three innings today.  According to the Club, Scott Schoeneweis, Todd Coffey, John Axford, and Zach Braddock (or, as Cory Provus is fond of calling him, Zach Bradford) will also get some work.

In case you missed the lineup for the Crew, it goes like this:

Escobar SS
Cain CF
Braun LF
McGehee 3B
Zaun C
Hart RF
Wilson 1B
Iribarren 2B
Gallardo P

Among those not making the trip to Peoria: Prince Fielder, Rickie Weeks, Jim Edmonds, Jody Gerut, Craig Counsell, and Jon Lucroy.

For the Fathers, it's former Cub Sean Gallagher on the bump.  In his only action of the spring, Gallagher blanked the Mariners for two innings.  Righty Mat Latos, lefty Cory Luebke, and righty Mike Adams are also slated to take the ball.

Enjoy the game!
