More stuff after the break.

This afternoon the Brewers have their work cut out for them, as they will face Colorado starter Ubaldo Jimenez, who is having as good as a season pitching that a guy named Ubaldo could ever hope for. Actually he is having a good season for guys named Walter, Three-Finger, Lefty, Tom, Dick or Harry, and even Cy.

Jiminez will be working for his18th win today, which would be a franchise record for the Rockies. In his last start, Jiminez gave the Rockies every opportunity to collect the win, however the Rockies bats were shut out in a 1-0 loss against the Mets.

The Brewers will counter with the enigmatic southpaw Manny Parra. As a starter, Parra has been far from enigmatic to hitters, as they have roughed Manny up for over 6 runs per 9 innings. Parra has failed to complete the 5th inning in 8 of his last 9 starts, and has only pitched more than 6 innings once this season, so get ready to cheer on your favorite bullpen pitcher this afternoon!

A nice note about Mike McClendon who made his MLB debut last night. McClendon became the first Brewer pitcher to retire the first nine batters that he faced in a single game. No Brewer pitcher has ever retired the first 10 batters he faced to start his career.
