Go Brewers!

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Marco Estrada (4.02 ERA, 4.04 FIP) gets the honor of making the final start of the 2013 season for the Brewers. Estrada had tons of home run troubles at the start of the season, but after a two-month stint on the disabled list he has been phenomenal. In eight starts since his return, he has a 2.26 ERA and has held opponents to a .502 OPS. Estrada is eligible for his second year of arbitration after the season and will see a nice raise from the $2 million he made in 2013.

He'll go up against Jonathon Niese (3.74 ERA, 3.59 FIP). Despite a 1.445 WHIP in 2013, Niese has posted a good ERA and FIP. Since his own two-month DL stint, Niese has made nine starts and has posted a 3.00 ERA.
