New, 320 comments

The Brewers look to move six over .500 and secure a series win over the O's.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Jimmy Nelson tries to ace the O's and keep the bullpen fresh in today's holiday match-up. Jimmy (6-4, 3.43) will face Baltimore's Ubaldo Jiminez (3-3, 6.48), the next in the line of sub-par Orioles' starters.

Craig Counsell goes with Jonathan Villar again at second, despite his 0-5, three strikeout performance yesterday. Hernan Perez spells Ryan Braun, and Stephen Vogt goes at catcher.
