Complete Coverage >

Follow the jump for the usual.

Randy Wolf (4.32 ERA, 4.99 FIP) is:

  • Making his 32nd start of the season.
  • Having a great September, posting a 1.14 ERA in 23.2 innings.
  • Coming off a complete game shutout on Friday against the Giants.
  • 4.1 innings away from reaching 200, which no Brewer has done since Jeff Suppan did it in 2007.
  • Six earned runs away from tying his career high (he allowed 100 in 2000 with Philadelphia).

Johnny Cueto (3.35 ERA, 3.97 FIP) is:

  • Making his 30th start for the third consecutive season.
  • A heavy-duty slider-user: He throws it 27.1% of the time.
  • Coming into tonight's game with just two earned runs allowed and 15 strikeouts in 13 innings against the Brewers in 2010.
  • The owner of a 2.18 ERA and .217/.258/.308 opposing line since August 27.
  • Not someone you want to let kick you in the head.
