Go Brewers!

USA TODAY Sports

Chris Narveson gets the start for the Brewers today. After missing basically all of the 2012 season, Narveson is hoping to re-establish himself as a member of the Brewers starting rotation. In his first game back, he had his struggles as he allowed two hits and a walk while giving up a run in 1.1 innings. Narveson holds a career 4.67 ERA and is in danger of losing his spot to younger talent.

He will be opposed by Matt Cain on the other side. Cain has developed into a top pitcher, and is being paid as such after signing an 8 year/$140 million contract. Cain has had sub-3.00 ERAs three of the last four seasons and is one of the most consistent performers in the majors today. He hasn't done quite as well during spring training, with a 6.43 ERA over seven innings, but it's spring training and those are just seven innings.

As of this writing, I haven't seen a lineup.
