Yesterday didn't go as the Brewers hoped. Rotation stalwart Jimmy Nelson was rocked for 6 runs in 4 innings. The bullpen locked things down from there. But the offense wasn't able to make up the ground and the Brewers fell 6-3. Today they hand the ball to one of the team's more pleasant surprises, Junior Guerra. He'll face off against Jeremy Hellickson who is enjoying one of the best seasons--early though it may be--in four years.
