It's the Narve-Dog vs. the Fish in a Memorial Day match-up. Lineups, pitching match-up, and more after the jump.

Chris Narveson (4-2, 5.53 ERA) will be making his seventh start of the season. Narveson had his worst start of the season last time out, only going 4 innings and giving up 4 earned runs on 8 hits and 2 walks. He simply didn't have any command of any of his pitches. He has been relatively decent as a starter, giving up more than three runs only twice, but only pitching a full six innings only twice. No Marlin has ever faced Narveson. Also, because I'm anal about stupid things like this, please vote in the poll about the proper way to spell Narveson's nickname.

He'll be taking on Nate Robertson (4-4, 4.05 ERA). After a long and mostly medicore career in Detroit, Robertson is having a pretty nice year in Florida, so far. His H/9 (8.9) are down from his career average (9.9), but his BB/9 (4.2) are up from his career average (3.3). In his career, Robertson is 0-0 with a 2.45 ERA against Milwaukee. Carlos Gomez is the only Brewer to have faced Robertson more than 10 times; he's hitting .333 against him in 12 ABs.

Today's lineup:
Weeks 2B
Gomez CF
Fielder 1B
Braun LF
McGehee 3B
Hart RF
Escobar SS
Kottaras C
Narveson LHP
