The Brewers look to avoid the sweep at the hands of the Cardinals in today's game scheduled for 1:15 p.m CDT at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Zack Greinke (2-1) looks to stop the Crew's three game skid while Jamie Garcia (2-0) hopes to push the streak to four.

The Astros and Reds play the rubber game of their weekend series at 12:10 p.m. CDT in Cincinnati. Young righty Jordan Lyles (0-0) will make his first major league start of the year for Houston. Mat Latos (1-2) will make the start for the Reds looking to even his record on the year.

The Cubs and Phillies wrap up their series in Philadelphia with a game at Citizens Bank Park that is scheduled to get under way at 12:35 p.m. CDT this afternoon. Matt Garza (1-1) will take the hill for the Cubs. Kyle Kendrick (0-1) will start for the Phils as he looks to bounce back from his terrible last outing which came on Monday night against the Diamondbacks.

The Pirates continue their series in Atlanta against the Braves with an afternoon game scheduled for 12:35 p.m. CDT. Kevin Correia (1-0) will start for Pittsburgh and Tim Hudson (0-0) will make his season debut for the Braves, his first major league start since undergoing offseason back surgery last November.
