Game Thread #-5: Brewers (13-13-1) at Angels (9-14)

This late in March, Spring Training has become pretty mundane. But once in a while, something happends that makes things just a bit more interesting. Such is the case today as, we get to listen to one of our top prospects play today as the Brewers travel to Tempe Diablo Stadium to take on the Angels.

Follow the jump for pitching matchups and to find out who the mystery prospect is!

Chris Narveson (1-0, 0.00 ERA this spring) will be on the bump today for the Brewers. The Narve-dog has yet to allow a run in an official spring training game, although he did allow one run in a B game last week. Hopefully he will pitch well again today, as a poor performance might cause Jeff Suppan's "stiff neck" to heal a little more quickly.

He'll be taking on Scott Kazmir (0-1, 7,11 ERA this spring). Kazmir missed his last spring start with fatigue in his left deltoid and is apparently still experiencing some tightness in the shoulder. In his last game he gave up three runs on five hits in four innings against the Rockies.

Today's lineup is an interesting one, with top prospect Brett Lawrie playing second while Weeks is at DH. Ryan Braun is still out with lower back tightness and Gregg Zaun is missing his second straight game with a sore left quad, although neither injury is considered serious.
