Did you bring your broom?

A sweep would be a fine way to send the Brewers off on their 11 day road trip. The Phillies send righty Jeremy Hellickson (5-5, 4.49) to the mound to try and get back to 30 below .500, and Matt Garza toes the rubber for the Brewers. The Count's 4-4, 3.98 line is a pleasant surprise for Milwaukee, in a season chock full of pleasant surprises.

The Brewers go with a more righty-centric line-up against Hellickson, and his season splits show almost no difference in his numbers against left handed bats vs. right handed bats.
