The Brewers go for a series split and their second win of the season this afternoon.

Win #1 is in the books. Now, it's time to get win #2 and prevent the first series loss.

Unfortunately, the Brewers have a big hill to climb today. It's the dreaded starting pitcher making his MLB debut. Antonio Senzatela makes his big league debut today in a start against the Brewers. The Brewers always seem to struggle against starters making their debut. Maybe it's a legitimate problem, or maybe it's just confirmation bias from several starts where it did happen. We'll see how it plays out today.

On the other side, it's Chase Anderson getting his first start of the season. He made the rotation after the injury to Matt Garza, and now the injury to Junior Guerra means the Brewers could use some good work from him. Can he build off of Wily Peralta's strong start yesterday?

Ryan Braun gets his first day off of the season in the continued management of his thumb and other nagging injuries. As a result, both Jesus Aguilar and Eric Thames are in the lineup today. Hernan Perez also gets in the action with a start at shortstop.

No local TV today, but the Rockies have a TV broadcast for those of you with access to it. Otherwise, get the radio out and listen along with Bob Uecker and Jeff Levering.
