As rosters are being pared down and the regulars are getting more time, the Brewers are 3-6-1 in their last ten Cactus League games. Today, they play their final of four spring training meetings against the San Francisco Giants, who lead all teams with 19 wins this spring.
Follow the jump for today's pitching matchup, starting lineup and conversation on today's game!
Dave Bush (1-0, 2.13 this spring, 5-9, 6.38 last season) is making his fourth spring training appearance and his third start today. Last time out, he held the Indians to one run on five hits and three walks in six innings en route to his only spring win. Bush's only 2009 appearance against the Giants was a relief inning on Opening Day, when he allowed two runs on three hits in an inning of work.
Jonathan Sanchez (1-1, 5.19 this spring, 8-12, 4.24 last season) is making his sixth spring start, and leads the Giants in walks (12) and runs allowed (12) this spring. He faced the Brewers on March 14 and really struggled, allowing six runs on three hits and five walks in just two innings. He's been better since then, though, and pitched 6.1 effective innings against the Reds on Wednesday.
