The last time Randy Wolf (2-1, 3.34) pitched, the Brewers lost at home to the Pirates for the first time in 23 games. That loss wasn't Wolf's fault, though, as he went eight strong innings and gave up just two earned runs before Trevor Hoffman blew the game. Wolf's FIP is almost a run higher than his ERA, at 4.26, which is right at his career average. He has faced three current Padres at least ten times.

Player PA Slash Line
Adrian Gonzalez 18 .353/.389/.353
David Eckstein 14 .167/.231/.167
Scott Hairston 10 .200/.200/.400

He'll be opposed by Jon Garland (2-2, 2.57) who's ERA is misleading. His FIP is two runs higher at 4.65 and is giving up nearly 5 walks per nine innings with a WHIP of 1.43. He has also faced three Brewers at least ten times.

Player PA Slash Line
Gregg Zaun 28 .407/.429/.444
Jody Gerut 23 .273/.304/.545
Joe Inglett 11 .300/.364/.300

And the Brewers lineup today:
2B Weeks
SS Counsell
LF Braun
1B Fielder
3B McGehee
CF Gerut
RF Inglett
C Kottaras
LHP Wolf

Craig Counsell is still starting at SS and Joe Inglett gets his first start in the OF since joining the Brewers.
