Follow us after the jump for today's pitching matchup, lineup and conversation on today's game!

Doug Davis (9-14, 4.12 last season) is making his first regular season start for the Brewers since September 28, 2006. He's made 93 starts for the Diamondbacks over the last three years, so Davis is pretty familiar with the Rockies, going 2-6 in his career with a 4.97 ERA in ten starts against them, and posting a 1.69 WHIP. Seven current Rockies have faced Davis at least ten times:

Player PA AVG OBP SLG OPS
Troy Tulowitzki 22 .353 .500 .412 .912
Jason Giambi 21 .176 .286 .353 .639
Todd Helton 17 .462 .588 .692 1.281
Miguel Olivo 14 .154 .214 .154 .368
Melvin Mora 13 .231 .231 .231 .462
Ryan Spilborghs 13 .308 .308 .538 .846
Clint Barmes 12 .273 .333 .545 .879

Aaron Cook (11-6, 4.16 ERA in 2009) is starting his ninth season as a Rockie and is the franchise's career leader in starts (166), wins (63) and innings pitched (1087.2). He gives up a fair number of hits (career 10.3 per nine innings) and doesn't get many strikeouts (3.7/9) but doesn't walk many batters (2.6/9). Four current Brewers have faced him at least ten times, and one should be pretty excited to see him again:

Player PA AVG OBP SLG OPS
Craig Counsell 35 .207 .314 .276 .590
Jody Gerut 26 .120 .115 .120 .235
Jim Edmonds 18 .563 .611 1.188 1.799
Prince Fielder 16 .214 .250 .286 .536

Via Tyler Barnes, here's today's lineup:

Rickie Weeks 2B
Carlos Gomez CF
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
Jim Edmonds RF
Casey McGehee 3B
George Kottaras C
Alcides Escobar SS
Doug Davis P

And in the bullpen:

Trevor Hoffman pitched one inning (15 pitches) yesterday.
LaTroy Hawkins pitched one inning (12 pitches) yesterday.
Mitch Stetter pitched .1 innings (4 pitches) yesterday.
Chris Narveson pitched two innings (32 pitches) Monday.
Todd Coffey, Claudio Vargas, Carlos Villanueva and Manny Parra have yet to appear in a game.

Enjoy the game!
