Follow the jump. You won't be disappointed.
Randy Wolf (4-4, 4.52) gets the start today for the Brewers. Before beating the Astros, he wasn't too proud of how he had been pitching lately. He'll be looking to ride the momentum of a seven inning, four hit night last start, though. Wolf's FIP this season is a poor 5.03. He has been walking around four men per nine innings while striking out about 1.5 less per nine this season compared to his career numbers. Seven Astros have faced Wolf at least ten times in their careers. Here are their stats against him.
Former Brewer R.A. Dickey (1-0, 1.50) is starting for New York. The knuckleballer has had two starts this season, and thus far has pitched well as he's posted a 3.35 FIP in a small sample size. In his career, though, he has a 4.82 FIP. He has an extraordinary 89.5% LOB%, which shouldn't stay that high. He also has yet to give up a home run. Then again, he has yet to face Corey Hart this season. He has not faced any current Brewers ten or more times.
The Bullpen report:
Carlos Villanueva pitched 1 inning (14 pitches) yesterday.
