Despite having won just one of their last five contests, the Brewers remain one of just five Cactus League teams with a record above .500. Today they travel to Goodyear to face one of the others, the Indians.

Jeremy Sowers (0-0, 9.00 this spring, 6-11, 5.25 last season) is making just his second appearance of the spring for the Indians, after pitching just two innings his last time out against the Reds. He's recovering from a shoulder injury and might start the 2010 season on the DL. His only career appearance against the Brewers was last June, when he was tagged with a loss, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks in five innings.
He'll face Dave Bush (0-0, 2.70 this spring, 5-9, 6.38 last season), making just his third Cactus League appearance, and his first since March 13, when he allowed a run on three hits to the White Sox in four innings of work. Bush is probably expected to go around six innings today in one of his last chances to demonstrate his health and effectiveness before roster decisions have to be made for Opening Day.
